Re: Pictures Week 13 (Tatlo)

Also please note my weirdly curly hair. That is all.

Fwd: Week 9 :)

Legazpi Mission Rising Up

Sige po! So this week was another incredible week! I'm seriously loving life. It's not easy, that's for sure, especially as a missionary, but it's SO worth it. This Saturday will be the baptism of April Joy and boy am I excited! She's the first investigator that I actually found. I've been there since the beginning. She's 9 years old and she's the cutest. She and her cousin Realyn really want to be friends with Jayda. I've shown them pictures of her and told them about her and they want to meet her! She's SO excited to be baptized and she can hardly contain herself every time we mention it. Ah. So cute.

So this week we had Zone Training and we had our third week with 50 lessons (yay for consistency) and I spoke in Sacrament Meeting with way better Tagalog than before and basically life is speeding by but I'm loving it.

We started teaching Sofia and Sunshine, two sisters that are about my age. We tracted their house when we were on exchanges and we met their mom (who spoke English!!). When I went back with Sister Tarantan we taught their Lola. The third time back we met them and they're super interested and progressing! They didn't come to church yesterday though because their mom is recovering from something with her eye and they were taking care of her. But there's always next week! haha agency man. We've had to drop a few investigators this week because they just weren't progressing and keeping their commitments. That's always the hardest. Especially when you've grown to love them.

Ok this is the shortest email so sorry. But I love you all and I love hearing from you even if I don't have time to respond. I love my life and I love being a missionary! The church is true! Mahal na mahal kita!

P.S. I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream of owning rainboots. They were like $3 US equivalent. THey are a necessity though because man, it's been flooding. okbye.
