Family!! Okay, what is this, and everyone getting married? #startled.
This week was up and down but we saw many miracles!! Success!!
Wednesday: Sister Corachea and I decided to save our money, so we went to Pinamungajan and went to the sister's MASSIVE apartment and chica'ed and i left a sticky note trail for Sister Atienza because she was going to be the new missionary there.
Thursday: we got up early, got on a big jeep that was blasting the best hits of Madonna, and headed to Toledo. I spent a good 4 hours sitting inside of the McDo there. transfer day is... long, and tiring, especially if there is a change in the companionship. just saying. I put sister corachea on the barge and waved goodbye as she headed to her 2nd area! She's growing up so fast hehe!
And then miracle of all miracles, my lovely Sister Hartog showed up.. I haven't seen her since my 3rd area so you can imagine my excitement when i saw her again! I squealed and hugged her and we chica'ed until the new companions came and life was fab. We threw coins into the bay and let little kids swim to get them. yes, that's a thing, and it's awesome.
Sister Avenila got to Toledo and she was so tired that she slept in the jeepney on the way home, and that is a HARD thing to do.. because they are not super comfortable.
Friday: area is progressing. except for nanay that likes to read the bible, she read from the book of mormon and said "your bible is so different!" and we had to reteach that its not a bible, and she promised she'd read it! so yay!!
many people here are being gahi towards us, it feels like satan is getting to everyone first, but jesus still wins every time. we are still seeing progress..
Saturday: we went to G and she told us that she is moving to the city, i was SOO SAD!!! no she can't be moving, she's so good!! I encouraged to find the church there and go there.
Sunday: i taught gospel principles again. we had a new investigator in class, and she was super interested! we went to her house after church and she's really super good!
Monday: I was eating a snickers and one of the elders looked at me and says... "headache?" the whole zone knows that when i eat a snickers i have a headache. I almost started laughing. We had a really successful day, we were able to achieve all of our goals. also jefferson passed his interview for his baptism so it should be this saturday!
Tuesday: we went back to the new investigator C, she had read the pamphlet and she had watched the restoration video by herself and she had a lot of really good questions, she's sooo receptive!! We were overjoyed!! and then, the cherry on top: while we were walking home last night, we were super exhausted from hiking all day, and we got a text from G, she decided not to move to the city and she really wants us to come back!! We have another appointment on thursday!! woohoo!! so miracles for sure here in aloguinsan!
I love my new companion, she is a really good missionary! our lessons are electric, the spirit is so strong.
I love being a missionary!
