Miracle of Zone Conference #50

I saw miracles. I saw happiness, and tears, and love. 

Wednesday: the activity at Hermit's Cove didn't work out. It's okay though, we can't swim anyways.
Thursday: Trying hard not to debate with people.. hehe... the struggle is real. But sometimes my scale of kaya is low. 

Friday: Oh my gulay we were so punted... but, we continue in faith bitaw? haha..

Saturday: day of miracles!! Day full of people that were at home, and willing to be taught. And I love that things go up and down and that the Lord knows what we need when we need it. And we totally walked up this hill and saw a ton of wood reindeers, and I was really confused for a second and then we asked what they were for..: EXPORT daw. So whenever you all see those vine-like reindeer at Christmas time.. I know a dealer haha. 

Sunday: It rained all day and it was SUPER HUMID. just saying. i taught gospel principles again, and yea.. it was on repentance and we ALL learned some important lessons.
We had to reserve one of our gahi investigators... maybe it's not her time yet.. but i had a really interesting moment with her when i bore her my testimony. I know the things that i've been teaching these 16 months are true.. and we can be so blessed if we just hang on a bit. 

We traveled to Pinamungajan and slept at the sister apartment. We got up @ 4AMand took a ghetto V-hire to the city.. and the driver totally hit a dog when we were riding and i was front seat so I saw it (and felt it) and i screamed and the elders all started laughing at me.. my life is super exciting..
We went to that tablea chocolate shop again and i got that fabulous chocolate frio and i was in heaven... i suggest it to all who come to the philippines. 

I gave my photos for immigration to sister nelson and she tacked them on my page.. and when i saw sister quinney she told me that our flights have already been scheduled. im like mentally losing it.. time is too fast!!!
The zone conference was AMAZING oh my goodness. We learned a lot, but the biggest thing that stood out to me was "know the why" of the work we are doing. Love truly is in the center of all of this. 

After Lunch we saw a bunch of missionaries that served here before and are back for a humanitarian project, and my brain was like flipping because I saw so many people i knew from my training... and then i bore my final testimony to all the missionaries on cebu island... and i was trying not to cry as I released 16 months worth of testimony and feeling to every body.. it was a really good experience.
I saw a bunch of my old companions... sister quinney, sister tago, and sister atienza.. and then just people i love like sister hartog... 

after the conference was over, we were all taking pictures outside, and i was talking to some of the RM's that were there and then i heard someone say "peasants sila bitaw" and i recognized the voice and i turned and it was Sister Beyer! I screamed and cried and just hugged her.. I haven't seen her since she went home in August and it was super fabulous and everything just came flooding back from before and we just had a few minutes of our old deep talks and.. it was the cherry on top of the whole day. we walked out to the street, and she took a jeepney, and i took a taxi... and im really excited to see her again in July. I love her so much! 

My zone got another v-hire back to Pinamungajan and we played a bunch of car games, and like half of them couldn't get them, but it was a lot of fun, and we were a bit loud but hahah, i don't think the driver hates us too much.
We slept at the sister's again because it was too late to take a tricycle back to Alo.. 

Tuesday: we woke up, took a trike, and then did our studies as normal. and then we worked our butts off all day. We are exhausted but it was totally worth it! we found a ton of new people to teach, and that are ready now. #scatteredIsrael. and we did some service... we like.. shucked corn... i think thats what its called.
Anyways family... i love you!!!!!
I love being a missionary!

Going to the temple, and we're...

Doing a session!! It was amazing, even if I had to ride in a v-hire at 3AM, worth it always.. I don't have time to write, like 5 minutes. 

So I just want to highlight, that i also got to skype my family and I loved every second of it! Especially the part when Debbie made a special guest appearance and I started to cry. I miss everyone hahha!! But I know where I'm supposed to be right now, there's a time and a season for everything! 

I got to write a tender mercy, and I got candy in return. Highlights of going to the mission office!
Aloguinsan is.. the same, but we are continuing in patience, and loving it! Mostly. haaha, yes there are trials, but we can overcome it all. 

I love being a missionary!

Issues? #Be Grateful

Happy birthday Logan! Malipayon ang adlaw sa imong pagkatawo! Also early happy birthday to Amber, because her's is this week as well! :D I miss you all lots! 

Wednesday: we did a CSP at the Pinamungajan sister's apartment! it was super dirty, and needed some love. That night we taught a lesson at a members house, and the mom was wearing a shirt that said "issues? #be grateful". easily one of the best shirts i've seen in a long time. 

Thursday. and Friday. #punted. and i almost broke my foot. and my companion informed me that i "sneeze with poise". 

Saturday: Feb's baptism!! He was so excited! Aloguinsan is rolling along! 

Sunday: E. Adriano began a branch choir. all the members are really excited. we are singing hymn #165 abide with me tis eventide for a musical fireside. Should be interesting. I'm excited!

Monday: Successful day ba! we accomplished many things. and we received timtams and we feasted on them and everything was wonderful! Also, they had mars bars at 7/11 and so life was great. I remember the first time i tried a mars bar was with Amber at the Alderwood mall. feels like so long ago hahah. 

Tuesday: We found a new investigator. She's really looking for peace and something to help her family be more united. She's really good!
We also 'met' some LA's and they... were not interested in even shaking our hands. but we continue, and we smile! Yay! 

We got lost in a canyon, and i just said "It's part of the adventure!" and we smiled and joked until we made it back out and found a man feeding his cow, and he gave us directions. It's part of growing up my dear! 

Wednesday: We are going to Bojo river later, should be amazing! I'll take pictures!
I love being a missionary!!
