Its time to be cool!

Hey everyone!

So guess what. I was not transferred again. Guess I will be here for 6 weeks. SO of course I have a new companion, his name is Elder Mandigma. He is from Batangas, Philippines. So that is my 9th companion, and my 9th Filipino companion. I think my Mission President must be having a lot of fun because I am the only American in the whole mission to not have had another American companion at least one transfer. But I am alright with it, I get along with the Filipino's much better than the Americans here... I know a few American Missionaries who have had only American Companions there whole missions. That must suckkkkk!

Here is a picture of some of the missionaries that are in my Apartment. They are freakin cool!
The one on the right is Elder Busby, he is a New Zealander and might become my companion soon. We found out from my Companion Elder Mandigma that he had a problem where he can not see at night without lights... well my area has no lights.. so my companion has to ride a bike at night unable to see... I think that after my Mission President finds out that he might not want him here anymore.

Let see what else, Honestly I am alright. I am starting to have so much fun here im my area. I have been here a crazy amount of time!

Love Elder Rivera


Hello Everyone,

Some Good and Bad news... Its TRANSFER week. GOOD NEWS, I am most likely not going to transfer, BAD NEWS I could still transfer. My companion Elder Gaa has recently gone home because he finished his mission, and so I am curretly with one american and one new Zealander. Both are really cool missionaries. I love the Polynesian people here in my mission are the coolest!

Lets see, What else do I really enjoy. My area is really cool! Honesty I have no idea what I feel right now. Within the next 6 weeks I will be able to skype home.. It should be really cool. I hope to enjoy it.

Lots of really fun times here... Lots of work also.

Hope to email more soon, Enjoy
