About Me

My photo
Hi! I'm Elder Lundy and I represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm excited to be serving my mission in the Philippines! For further reading, see Ether 12:6, 27 "6. And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith. 27. And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

January 16 email


I’m so sorry.
I’ve spent the past 45 minutes writing you an email and then my screen just flashed and it all disappeared. I can't rewrite it all. I’ll give you the main points though.
I have a new companion. His name is Elder Deriada.

Elder Deriada is pretty cool. He is my follow-up trainer. I am learning a lot from him, and president has asked me to teach him several qualities that he has seen in me. That felt good that he trusts me and knows me that well already. I like president a lot; I just wish I could be around him more.

Elder Schmidt went to Nueva Vizcaya.

Elder Jackson has a new comp. His name is Elder Tangi. (A Samoan from New Zealand)
I received packages from you (the pepperoni package, which I absolutely love!!! thank you!),

and a package from
Amanda Harper,

and a package from
Robert Gardner (from the Waukesha ward. Please give him a shout out on the blog for me saying Thanks and that I loved it!)

and a package from
Steph Cuzner (please let her know I got it, and I haven't opened the birthday present. I’m saving it for my birthday.)

We had another baptism this past week; the niece of our neighbor. She was taught in manila, but came here for her grandma's funeral and because of her work situation. I have never met a smarter investigator. We baptized her, and she asked me to confirm her, which I gladly did.

About the computer. If you moved it into my old room, I request that you take the door off the wall while the family computer remains in that room. I wish I never had a computer in my room before my mission and I hope you pass that request on to Eric when he gets one.
Health wise I am doing very good. The med's helped a lot. I’m starting to get used to it here.
I love you Mom, I love you Dad. I’m sorry this isn't longer today, but it is the best I could do. Both of you look up Helaman 12:3 “And thus we see that except the Lord doth chasten his people with many afflictions, yea, except he doth visit them with death and with terror, and with famine and with all manner of pestilence, they will not remember him.” . Apply it to all aspects of sorrow, pain, grief, and basically anything covered by the atonement of Christ. Even the loneliness of home life without many kids there.

I love you both so much!

-Elder Lundy
