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!
