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."

He's still in Paddad ! : )


(Elder Lundy’s Nana had an operation last week)

I’m glad that nana is doing well. Sounds like she has lots of company right now. She should be happy. Especially since that company is family, and we have an awesome family. :)
(I told Elder Lundy that his blog received lots of views due to Manny in a blog title. It wasn't Manny Pacquiao like people thought.)
Manny Pacquiao is huge here. I heard no end of his fight. In fact, I saw no end of it. I’m pretty sure I saw the entire fight through the highlights and replays at investigators and less-actives houses. Pacquiao is huge to them. He represents, to them at least, that Filipinos can compete physically. To be honest, from what I saw, Pacquiao totally should have won though, Bradley was weak. Cge, back to the letter.

So transfers...this will be an interesting transfer. I AM GOING TO BE TRAINING A NEW MISSIONARY!!!!! :) I’m excited! :) I'll still be in Paddad.  ;)

So I got my new pants, both pairs. They are my favorite right now. They actually fit! :) I wasn't used to it at first, but I like it now. I get the vest tomorrow hopefully. Nanay is taking her dear sweet time on it. : P she is 2 weeks or so late now.

We start the "companionship language study" tomorrow. Our zone hasn't received training on it yet. We get trained tomorrow.

I love you! :* have a good week!!!

A short message from Elder Lundy


I don't have time today. My part time scheduled an appointment for us at 5...which is about right now...yup, that’s early. Basta, we're getting along pretty well. He is miles ahead of where I was when I started my mission, but he still has miles to go. It’s a long never ending journey. I’m sure any apostle would agree in saying they still have a long way to "travel". Keep on keepin' on.
Can you say hi to Dale for me? I miss working with him. Not really the physical labor part, but rather working with a man who is as strong and sturdy in the gospel as I try to be. I admire him to death, in a big brother kind of way.

Our work this week exploded. :) We got tons of lessons and visits to many an investigator and less active member. We had one of them go to church this past Sunday, Tatay Casabuena’s actually. It was cool. Well, I have to go. I love you! I’ll have more time next week.

I love you all! :*

June 11, 2012 Paddad

Hey! So companion updates...

My new companion is a part-time missionary. He is a local that is waiting for his mission call. His name is Brother Era. My previous companion, Elder ---, went home this past Tuesday. It was the doctor's suggestion. He was wavering on what to do said President, but in the end, chose to go home. It is a medical release and as such is honorable.

...Elder --- going home hit us all really hard. Well, I should be with Brother Era until transfer day when I should get a new comp. I’ve been in Paddad all week. Things are going well here. I made contact with all of our serious investigators, and 5/15 new Less Active families we were assigned to visit. It was a good week, even if I only got to work starting on Thursday...

Well, I have to go. Brother Era doesn't email or get Pres' letter to read so I don't get time to email until the end of this cycle...  I’ll try and send pictures next week. Thank you everyone for your emails and pictures. I enjoyed them a lot!

Love you! :*

I'm back in Paddad!


(Sorry the letter was a little longer, but some of it was just for Mom : ) so I didn't share it. I asked if they were soggy there, because Typhoon Mawar hit the Philippines.)

We haven't had any sort of monsoon/baggio type weather here. Its been nice and flippin hot this past week.

 (I asked what Fast Sunday was like there.)  

Fast Sunday in the Philippines- it’s pretty much the same. Now that I understand Tagalog for the most part, it’s just normal. Of course people use a ton of other dialects, but that’s just normal too. I’m gunna go crazy when I go home and all people speak is English. It’s so boring now. Though I’m kinda bored with Tagalog as well. That’s why I’m starting in on Ilocano now. But back to sacrament. I actually went to 2 in Angadanan this past Sunday. One was normal. The other we didn't have testimonies. It had about 15-20 people, most of which were investigators. I ended up giving a talk about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and our fellowshipper that came with us gave a talk on how to bear a testimony. It was held in a member's home there, and they don't have a branch pres. they only have a group leader. We talked on a kind of broken karaoke machine. It was interesting....


 Nasaan ang kapangyarihan ng Diyos dito sa mundo? Alam ko at ibabahagi ko sa yo. Noon, tinawag ng Diyos ang mga propeta dito sa mundo katulad nina Adan, Noe, Moises, Abraham, etc... Magbabago ba ang Diyos? Hindi po. Sinasabi ng mga Banal na Kasulatan, hindi magbabago po siya. Parehas po siya "noon, ngayon, at magpakailanman." Noon, ibinigay ng Diyos and kapangyarihan niya sa mga propeta na makapagturo at makapagbinyag sa tao. Kung totoo ang sinasabi doon sa Biblia, ibninibigay niya and kapangyarihan sa mga propeta ngayon. Ang mensahe ko ngayon so inyong lahat ay meron tayong isang buhay na propeta, tinawag ng Diyos dito sa mundo ngayon. Ibinibigay ng Diyos ang kapangyarihan niya sa kanya. Ginagabayan niya ang mga propeta sa pamamagitan ng paghahayag o revelation. Alam ko totoo po ito. Ang totoong simbahan ng Diyos meron tatlong haligi. Yon tatlong haligi ay Buhay ng propeta at mga apostol, meron silang kapangyarihan ibinigay ng Diyos, at tinatanggap nila paghahayag mula sa Diyos para sa buong mundo. Ang Simbahan ni Jesucristo ng mga Banal sa mga Huling Araw meron yon tatlong haligi. Ito po ang aking patotoo and alam ko totoo po ito. Iwanan ko ito sa pangalan ni Jesucristo, ang ating Tagapagligtas at Manunubos, amen.

 Translation of Message:

Where is the authority of God on the earth? I know and I am going to share it with you. God called prophets here on earth in the past, like Adam, Noah, Moses and Abraham. Does God change? No. The scriptures say He does not change. He is the same "yesterday, today, and forever." God gave his authority to the prophets to teach and baptize people. If what the Bible says is true, He still gives his authority to prophets today. My message now to you all is that we have a living prophet, called of God, here on earth today. God has given his authority to him. He guides the prophet through revelation. I know this is true. The true church of God has 3 parts to its foundation. The 3 parts are: a living prophet and apostles, they have authority given to them of God, and they receive revelation from God for the whole world. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has this foundation. This is my testimony and I know it is true. I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, amen.

 My mother also shared a quote with me that I feel I should include here.

 “Faith can move mountains, but don't be surprised if God hands you a shovel. ~Author Unknown”

I love you! :* I hope you have a good week! :)
