Maayong Hapon sa tanan!
I am terrible at updates;(
BUt here I go!
Great week. I have two new companions. One is from Pakistan and is going home in a week and the other is from the biggest country in the world, Kiribati! Joke, its really tiny. I cant find a map that shows the island. But anyway, we've been having a blast. I love my new area. I'm in the main City of Bacolod now in an area called Magsungay. Our ward is great. The missionaries have done a lot of work here which is nice. The leaders are really great and I'm excited to be working with them. We have one of the senior couples in our ward and they're so funny! Elder Sinema loves cooking mexican food and we have a dinner appointment on Tuesday so I am SOO EXCITED> I miss real food! hah. An tortillas! Yay! Their house is soo big and their backyard is the ocean. Its pretty awesome.
Anyway, about the memebers. Theyre a ton of fun. We will be eating a ton this week because of my companion that is going home. We have a ton of ward missionaries and its so great working with them. Some of them can teach better than i can! Our Ward missionary leader is soo super nice to us. Maybe cause we're gwapa:) Haha Joke.
Its still hot, I dont think thats ever going to change.
We're going to be having 26 new missionaries this next month! So crazy! I'm excited to see all the changes and the new areas opening up. Its so exciting to see so many new missionaries coming in. I finally feel comfortable speaking the lanugage. I even speak it with people who speak english. When I spoke to my family for Christmas, I kept switching to Ilonggo, especially when i was trying to speak to my dad in spanish. My spanish is terrible:(( It makes me sad. I wish I had brought my spanish Book of Mormon.
Well, I'm excited to see what 2013 has to offer. I hope you are all well and are doing missionary work wherever you are. Its a great responsibility and so important. I love this gospel, its such a blessing. Thank you all for the wonderful encouragement in your emails and letters. Keep them coming:))
I'll continue to send updates whenever I have time!
I love you all.
