Hello people! How is life?

This week has been insane. I'm emailing way early today because we've got a signal 4 typhoon coming our way and we're being evacuated to the chapel in like 2 hours.It's Typhoon Nina and I just keep singing that Ed Sheeran song.. But don't worry, I'm alive and I will continue to be alive. We just get to have a massive sleepover. with like the whole mission. Christmas Con Part II... haha.

So we taught a really great lesson to our investigator Joanne and then we get outside to find that her dog has stolen one of my shoes. yeah ok. that's cool. So once again, I went home wearing someone else's shoes and holding one in my hand. I have bad luck, I'm telling ya.

We got to hang out at the mission home putting together Christmas packages for all of the missionaries and it was so fun! The Guanzon's daugher Princess loves me and we sang Do You Want to Build a Snowman together. She is the cutest. We kept trying to bribe the office elders to tell us about the transfer plans but they wouldn't cave. But....

Transfer Announcement came on Saturday and I'm staying in Legazpi with Sister Delgado for Christmas! It's gonna be a pretty good Christmas away from home. There's gonna be two new missionaries in our room so we had to squeeze another bunk bed in there and its rather cozy.

Fred came to church again on Sunday and he said to President Guanzon earlier this week "3 more sundays until I can be baptized". He's really excited! I'm so excited for him! He also went to the mission home and told president that he doesn't want either of us to be transferred. hah. I love him. He's a sweetheart.

We watched the Christmas Devotional last night and of course I cried. It was all of my favorites speaking. The Spirit was so strong. I'm so excited to be a missionary here during Christmas time. Also I want you all to youtube the song "Thank You For the Love/ Salamat sa Pag-ibig" It's THEE Christmas song of the Philippines this year and it's so beautiful. It's always stuck in my head. I love it.

Even though we're gonna be evacuated, I'm actually really excited to experience Typhoon Nina. That sounds horrible, but hey. You only mission once, di ba? I've never been in a natural disaster before so this'll be cool. I just hope no one dies. I'm just excited to be able to get out there and be a Mormon Helping Hands after. I just wanna help people. Spiritually and physically. Plus I'm excited to get some serious scripture study done while we're evacuated. It's not all bad, eh?

I love you all and I hope you have a great week! Sorry this email is scatterbrained, I've got a lot going on at the moment.. haha. I love you!

Merry Christmas!
