Family and Friends,
So this week was great and super busy!
On Thursday, we went to the city and bought a bunch of stuff for our apartment. We bought a refrigerator, tables, stove and a bunch of other stuff. It's great that we aren't living out of our suitcases anymore and that we can cook now. It was really nice because our landlords took us to the city. They are awesome...they said they'll refer to us as their kids and that we are a part of their family now. So, it's a really good situation at our new place. Saturday, we had to go again to the city, and now we need a spare key for our apartment (by today) so we are headed there again for our p-day.
We didn't get to teach a lot this week. We got "punted" several times (people cancelled). We did get to teach Brother "M" though which was great. He is super excited about the gospel. He said he was going to come to church, but he didn't make it. We don't know why, but I'm sure he had a good reason. Th "B" family is also doing great. We taught them last night, and the father really understands what we are teaching so hopefully they'll be able to make it to church. It's tough for them to make it to church because they live really far away and he is out of work right now. Hopefully, things will change for them.
Other than that, we had a "off" week but that's alright...we'll continue to work hard and are excited for the upcoming week.
The language is really coming a long great. When we taught the "B" family last night, I was pretty comfortable speaking. It was dope because they told me that I was a really fast learner.
Sorry for the short letter. Have a great week!
Love you all,
Questions answered from our personal letters:
(How are you feeling?) "I'm great and I am a lot better, not sick at all anymore."
(How is the new apartment?) "The new apartment is great and soooo much better than the other one. The air conditioner is so nice when we turn it on for a little bit."
(Did you get everything you needed for you new apartment?) "We got most everything we need for the apartment, we still need some more stuff, but we can cook now."
(Did you get to watch conference?) "We will watch conference next Saturday and Sunday here, so we have to wait another week. I'm looking forward to it. We will watch it at the Stake Center. Our Ward will rent two jeepneys and we will all go together."
(What was the best and hardest part of your week?) The best part of my week was definitely the lesson we taught last night, I spoke really well and I felt so good. The "B" family complimented me... It was really great! The hardest part of the week was having to go to the city twice. It takes forever, and I would rather be working.
