5 Months tomorrow...

Hello my lovely friends and family! What a week it has been! Lots of good news and lots of blessings! Tomorrow is my 5 month mark and I absolutely can't believe it's been that long. What the even heck.

So Rosalio's baptism is back on! This Saturday! I'm so excited for him! He's so excited! He passed his interview on Saturday and we're off! :D

On Tuesday we went on exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders and I went with Sister Lapuz in our area. It was so much fun and I learned SO much!

Thursday we had Zone Conference in Sorsogon with Elder Haynie of the Quorum of the Seventy. It was an incredible meeting. We learned a lot about prayer and about Enoch (whom I love) and about our purpose to find those who have been prepared. The Spirit was so strong! Elder Haynie kept calling on me to answer questions and to read scriptures and stuff and it was just such a cool experience to be edified by the Spirit like that. You learn so much more when you're involved and ask and answer questions.

We have the BEST investigators right now. Erwin is my favorite (am i allowed to have a favorite?) and he's so sweet and so genuine. We tracted him and he's one of those people that were just completely prepared by God. He reads the Book of Mormon and asks questions and is just a golden investigator, talaga. i'm so blessed to be here. I really hope I get to see him be baptized.

A cool thing that happened yesterday: So after church we get on a Padjack to head back home, I tell the driver "project" because that's where we live. so he goes the wrong way and I'm like "where is this dude going?" and we're right by one of our investigators houses. Sister Routhier is like "let's just go visit the Molina Family because we're right here anyway" I was hungry and wanted to just go home, but I decided to listen to her.  So we get there and it's just Sister Molina. We teach her a really great lesson and she's so happy we came. I just all of a sudden get a prompting to ask her if there is anything we can do to help her. She hasn't been able to come to church because she's needed to work. There family is struggling a lot right now financially. So we just offered to help with laundry or anything. I could tell she didn't want to say yes because she's a very independent woman, but she accepted and I'm super excited to be able to help her! Hopefully we'll ease her work load so she can come to church. I love her a lot.

So yes. It's been a great week and I'm excited for the upcoming week! I love being a missionary! I love you all so much! have a great week!
