We were actually in the MTC at the same time as Zach, just not in the same country. Zach left for the MTC in Bogata just a couple of weeks before we entered the MTC in Provo.
'Crazy sauce' is a good description for the similarities between many of his cultural experiences and ours. A lot of the things he talks about in his emails home sound very familiar. Things like challenges of food, heat, and language barriers to name a few. Here are a few pictures that made us think he could be in the Philippines.

We had opportunities to see families baptized this week. On Thursday Sister Maughan and Sister McNett went to a baptism in Lapu-Lapu.

On Saturday we attended a baptism in Lilo-an where our good friend, Elerie, was able to baptize his cousin's daughter. There was another family consisting of a mother, Roneda Trinidad, and her two sons Bryan and Ryan who were also baptized.

Thought for the Week"The tender mercies of the Lord are real and they do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence."
