I am now 22. I have been alive for 22 years, feels like an eternity, but I have a long way to go.
I have had a great birthday so far! This morning we went to the Marikina Sports Centre with some missionaries from our zone (my district and then the zone leaders and 2 other Elders). It was so much fun! We played basketball, and then played a game with random people. It was fun! Then we went out for lunch. They bought me a cake and then sung for me haha. It was so nice! I have had a great birthday so far! Later we are going to Taytay to buy some more dresses so it is going to be an awesome day.
This week has been another good one. We did 2 exchanges this week. On Thursday and Saturday. I worked with my old companion again. Sister Balagso! She is now in our zone. It was awesome and we had so much fun!! I also worked with a Sister from America. It was funny because everyone stared at us and even some people OYM'ed us. I felt like we didn't even have to try and find people, they just came to us. They are amazed that we are white and know how to speak Tagalog. It was lots of fun.
So, me and my companion have an awesome opportunity. Later tonight we are going to be skyping missionaries in Taiwan. They have a Filipino investigator that has limited English and Chinese, so they are having trouble. The Mission President in Taiwan sent President Koster a message and asked him if he could find some Sisters who spoke English and Tagalog so that we could help teach. President called us! How amazing is that?! Out of everyone he chose us. I was so excited! And out of every mission here the Mission President of Taiwan chose our mission. It is an amazing opportunity and I am excited to experience this. We will be the translators for the missionaries over there and their investigator! We will be going to the office later and our appointment is at 6:30pm. Awesome opportunity!
That is all that has really happened this week. I've gone blank again hehe. But yesterday I was reading in the New Testament, in Luke. This is the first time I have really started to appreciate the parables that Jesus taught! They are amazing! I love the way the Saviour teaches. He is a perfect example for us.
I hope you all have another great week!
Love you all
