This Blog is about Elder Hennessey's two year mission, in the Philippines Baguio Mission, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

From this week there are 2 big things that happened. One changed my life, and the other changed the lives of 2 others. First, Conrado and Eugene are now baptized and confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And Their Muslim mamma came to church yesterday, which was a miracle in itself. 

The other news is that I now have a really bad allergy to Pork. I don’t know exactly all the limitations but Monday night we had a Bonfire and Elder Dosdos BBQ'd a lot of pork Tapa and we ate  a ton. Then at about 3 in the morning of Tuesday I woke up thinking I was being eaten alive by bugs. I was SOOO itchy, and I could feel bumps all over my skin. I thought I'd finally grabbed one of the bugs, and went to the bathroom to see it under a light when I saw my chest and back was covered in a Big raised rash, Elder Centeno said it looked like I had a textured red map of the world on my body. At first I thought I had leprosy, but I just covered it in Gold Bond Extra Strength Cooling Powder and in the morning it was mostly gone, but moved to my legs. Then Tuesday night I ate 3 pork shish kabobs for dinner with rice and within 5 minutes I was having a raised rash again appear on my legs, although not as bad this time. It was awful. I don’t know if it extends to beef, but as for the time being I just take a bunch of pills before I eat it and if it happens anyways...well let’s say Pork is worth the Rash covering my body :)

That’s all, Hope you aren’t suddenly allergic to one of your favorite foods.
