Heres an update for the homies


ITs SO HOT! I've been showering like 3 times a day hehee..

Anyway, our area is split and we're starting to get the hang of it. The problem is my area is a little sketchy and we're always left hanging. So we do a ton of finding and oym'ing. Its a ton of fun. There were elders here a few years ago and they seem to have visited everyone! Most of the people we find were previously taught so they already have a background on the church which is cool. We found a less active who was baptized when she was 9 and hasnt gone to church since and she was soooo happy to see us. She really wants to come to church. I thought that was pretty cool. Even how many years after she still remembers the good feelings and wants that again and she knows she can get it through the gospel. 

We had a really great service day with our whole zone. We went to an area called Punta Taytay. The beaches here in Bacolod are suuuuper nasty. The ocean is the peoples backyard so they just throw all of their rubbish and we dug through at least a foot of rubbish. We had so many garbage bags full! I wish I had taken a picture, and we only cleaned up a small area. SO crazy. So, just dont litter kay? :)

We had exchanges and I was with a sister Davis whos been here for like 3 weeks. Shes such a sweetheart and it was so funny seeing the reactions of the Filipinos to her blond hair and blue eyes. They were a little confused why if she's american and I am too, and why we look so different hehee. I had to speak mostly English and we did some practice teaching in English and it was so hard! Its so difficult to express myself and explain and give examples.  

We have a zone activity later on today which should be fun. The Sinemas are so great! I love senior couples. OUr Kiribati sisters taught us one of their traditional dances and its sooo fun but ahhh, sakit! it hurts to sit and the arm movements ay, my arms are sore;)) But its so fun. I'm so going to get into this stuff, its a workout and so fun. We're going to perform at our zone activity hehee.

Nothing much else going on in Magsungay. I'm so excited for Claudias wedding and so proud of ALe's graduation. My mom was called to be Relief Society President and Diego is bringing home medals everyday from swimming and art and math competitions. Show off;) 
My grandmother is pretty sick so any prayers for her would surly be appreciated. I was told she might not make it before the time I get back. Its so weird that such an important person might be gone when I get home. Cge lang, plan of happiness no? 

I love you all and miss you dear friends and family. 

Palangga ko kamo<3
