Wednesday: we had a last zone lunch @ mang inasal.. i've decided i like the pecho better than the paa. just sayin. at the house my companion took a nap and i was bored so i drew a picture of her on a sticky note and stuck it on her hand and she was so scared she jumped up haha. 

Thursday: we had a successful day, considering we spent the first part of the week in Toledo and we didn't have the chance really to work in our area. Our new investigator G, the one that was taught before is really progressing! Bad news though, one of our investigators didn't come back on Sunday because he was staying in the city to work. 

Friday: We met this nanay, and we sit down to teach her, and she starts talking about the bible. She reads the bible every day.. I NEVER meet investigators that read the scriptures every day, i was just like "whaaaat???" it was so cool, because when we were testifying of the book of mormon, we were showing her a scripture in 3 nephi, and she was like "that sounds familiar." and i was like "it's in the bible too!" man it was so cool.

later when we went to a members house, one of the pigs escaped in the middle of the lesson and the daughter was screaming chasing it around the yard it was so funny.
Sister Corachea during nightly planning was trying to make a reference in visaya and she says.. "bungol ug upaw." and i just look at her for a minute and say "Deaf and bald? What are you talking about?" and then we both die laughing and i say "do you mean deaf and mute?" apparently mute in tagalog is upaw.. but in visaya its bald so... language barriers hahhahahhaha

Saturday: one of our to-be IBD's moved back to the city... ugh.. wala na cya. we treated ourselves to ice cream and we took it to Nay Fely's house and she got us Butong, and life was fabulous. 

Sunday: I taught gospel principles, abrahamic covenant. whew.. we ate escaveche at a members house and it was delicious!!! i have the recipe, so i'll make it when i come home. 

Monday: we got a new stove and electric fans, because the old ones were so bad and broken. We feel so fancy now when we cook. so miracle of all miracles, on sat and sun we went to G but she wasn't home both times so we were like, ugh.. is she punting us? does she not want to be taught? so we were feeling pretty discouraged but we tried again on monday, and she was home! and when she saw us her face just lit up!! She's the one that was taught a year ago but then moved. During the lesson we asked how she liked being taught and she said that she really wanted to learn more, she was worried that the two days were we missed each other we wouldnt want to go back to her, and she was really hoping we would come back because she wants to learn. I wanted to fist bump! 

Tuesday: we had a long/fast day, i can't describe it, transfer call day is kuyaw.. sister corachea is going to mabini, and my new companion is sister avenila! Who was my co-zone in san carlos, and she's hilarious, so of course i am thrilled! we are going to have so much fun. 

Wednesday: this morning my companion read me a passage out of the red handbook about how Return missionaries need to get married when they get home and she says "and now sister, that you are in the last 12 weeks of your mission you need to remembers this" i was speechless like "WHATTTTT???"" she's too fresh ahhahahha, but i love her.
Seeing miracles in Aloguinsan!
I love being a missionary!
