So this week was good!

Sister Jimenez got a really bad stomachache one night and we had to go to the hospital in the morning to get it checked out. They gave her medicine and she ended up being fine, but I was a worried kasama. She's such a trooper. She couldn't sleep the whole night and she told me she repented of all of her sins while she couldn't sleep. hahaha. I love her.

On Friday while we're in Personal Study, the Supply Elders show up to our house with Sister Roque and Sister Davocol. Sister Roque has really bad scoliosis and she had a half stroke one night, so she has been sent home to rest and will hopefully return in a month or two. On Saturday we were in a trisome with Sister Davocol and it was so great being with her! She is a way good teacher! Also we were walking from an appointment with her and the sidewalks here are like removable (if that makes sense, like there's the structure and then like a cement lid over it so they can access the sewer) and I walked on one that is broken and I tripped and fell and scraped up my entire right leg. haha. Sister Jimenez is like a girl scout or something and had a million bandaids to help me survive, but I was just laughing. And literally everyone around was staring at me. I swear when I do something to draw attention, it's ten times worse because I'm white. I'm so clumsy.

Sundays in Legazpi Ward are just the best every time. Henry came to church and he's on track to be baptized on March 12th! One day the other week we tracted a house randomly when some appointments fell through and we've gone back a few times, and Sister Ester came to church on Sunday! In Gospel Principles she was asked to tell how she came in contact with us. She said she was baptized about 20 years ago and then became completely inactive. She moved here and attended church a few times but then stopped. She said she used to see us walking around all the time and she thought to herself that she wished we would come and teach her. Then, we tracted her house and thus the return to faith began. She said it feels like she's coming home. It's so incredible as a missionary that the Lord leads you wherever you need to go. I'm still amazed. The chances that that would happen. The Lord really has a plan for each and every one of His children.

In other news, on Sunday a cute little boy ran up to me after church and handed me a rose and said "para sa'iyo" which means "for you" and it was the cutest thing. They were left over flowers from our ward conference.

Anyways, I love you all and hope you have a great week! Happy Birthday, Kate!
