About Me

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."

Last letter from Elder Lundy in the Cauayan Philippines Mission!


Mom, thank you.

I love you. You have been superwoman for me these whole 2 years. You have supported me in my ups and my downs. You never stopped. Not even when you needed help yourself. I love you.

Now, I’ll see you in a few days. Please don't be surprised if I come home with much much less of everything than when I came. There are needs here that I intend to fill.

In response to what I want to eat when I get home... I’m not worried. I’ve been in Tuguegarao for 3 months now. I’ve eaten much more than my share of hamburgers and junk food. I also gained 8 pounds back while here. I'm not sure how I’m gunna feel about food after such a long flight. All in all my flight time totals over 19 hours... just something simple. I would like to have a family Mexican night soon, but not right when I get home. I’m not sure I could handle it. haha. I just thought maybe a burrito, then I just realized that’s Mexican food pala... can we just do a stir-fry with chicken and veggies and rice? That sounds safe. 

I'll do my best to get the pictures you want before I come home. :)
(I suggested that he get a picture with his new Mission President, the Manila Temple and the MTC in Manila.) I don't know where I’ll be staying when I get to Manila...

Well, we have a lot to do. I am coming home, and we found out earlier that Elder Laxamana is transferred. We got pulled out! :(

So he needs time to pack as well.


Thank you for the many letters you have written me every week. Thank you for your example to me. I know you have said time after time that me being on a mission has given you strength to share your testimony.

Every time I have heard you do that, I see that you are so different from all the members I know that are too shy or afraid or unfocused to say a word. You have given me the strength to give my best. You have shown me an example my whole life. You have "raised me up in the way I should go, and I will not depart from it." and I thank you for that.

As I told mom, I need to get going so Elder Laxamana can pack as well.
I love you Dad. :* see you soon! 

I love you guys! See you soon! :*

-Elder Lundy
