2 Months already whaaa??


Today is my two month mark. Where has the time gone?? what the even heck? Is this real life?

Soooo let me tell y'all a little story! So on Thursday we had planned to go to our area that we've been opening. We are supposed to have members (at least one priesthood holder) with us when we go there because people get drunk and since I'm white I stand out so I'm an easy target. So, the members had to cancel last minute so instead we met with our branch president. I was feeling useless because I was the reason we couldn't go teach there and hindi ko alam Tagalog. Then president starts talking about the branch's efforts in family history. I told him I was a consultant back home for a few years so I could help if he wanted. He lit up and told me how he got the chills when I told him that and how I'm an answer to prayers. Basically, people, I've said it a million times, but GOD'S PLAN IS PERFECT! You are exactly where you need to be. Anyone who knows me very well knows I have a huge love for family history. Plus my Patriarchal Blessing says it's my responsibility to help in this work and I was blessed with skills to do so. THIS IS WHY IM HERE. I'm so grateful that I get to help people with something that I love! Hurrah for Israel!

In other news I extended so many baptismal dates this week... wait for it... in Tagalog! WAHOO! We got 9 investigators to commit to baptism this week. One of which is Brother Justine and boy has this guy been prepared by the Spirit. We found him while we were tracting in our farthest area and he was super interested. By our next visit, he came over to the house of his neighbor who we were teaching just to sit in. We then committed him to baptism. Basically I love my life.

My kasama has scoliosis and it's been getting worse. At some point soon they're going to send her to the Missionary Recovery Center in Manila. We don't really know what's gonna happen. I might go with her. I might stay here and get a new trainer, which would mean I would have to lead the area. But it's okay because whatever happens, I know I can do it because it'll be what the Lord wants me to do!

P.S. My hair is starting to be curly. I just thought you might want to know. Like Annie curly. But you can't really tell because I always put it up. Basically all of my wildest dreams are coming true.

Anyways, that's all folks.

I love you all so much and I love hearing from you! Never forget that you are a child of God and that He loves you!!
