I have to confess - I "stole" this picture from Sister Carlos' (mission president's wife) blog! Jarom's first companion in the field is Elder Pareja (the one in the middle). He is from the Philippines. Jarom says, "His English and Tagalog is very good. He's a bigger Filipino and we work hard, obey all of the rules with exactness, and workout every morning. He is very cool! Our companionship is a very strong one that's full of hard working and exact obedience."
