Hello Friends and Family,
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I hope you all had a great week. Sorry for the late email, the internet here in Antique was down yesterday, so we couldn't email.
This Week's Crazy Story:
The ghosts are back!!! Right now, I am on splits with Elder Merrill. We spent our P-day in his area yesterday because of a cool activity that we did (I'll get to that later). We came home and as we were going to bed, I turned all the lights off. We were laying in bed, talking, when suddenly, the bathroom door opened. I asked my companion..." was that you?" It wasn't him! (We were on HIGH ALERT.) Then, that same door kept opening and shutting. (We were freaking out!) Finally, we got the courage to get up and rig the door so it wouldn't open again. We kept some lights on too. We thought we were okay and started to relax a little, when suddenly...the same thing started to happen with the door to our bedroom. After a lot of prayers, we got the courage to get out of bed and prop that door open too. We finally fell asleep about midnight... I don't like ghosts! We are going to try to move soon. haha!
This week was a awesome week. The best experience of the week was when we taught Sister "LA". We had planned to teach her about the Plan of Salvation. After we started the lesson, I asked her how her reading of the Book of Mormon was going. She said one day she was out on a sea wall looking over the ocean while she was reading. She read the Introduction to the Book of Mormon (one of my favorite parts) and she was pondering what she had read. As she was pondering, she looked up at the sunset and saw Christ's face on the sun. She took that as her answer that this is the true church. We were able to have a very cool lesson with her. We talked about her experience and about the Holy Ghost. She actually took a picture of the sun... it's cool. I am so happy for her! This week, "N" also passed his baptismal interview and he will be baptized on Saturday.
Thursday, we had the opportunity to go to San Jose for a Missionary Conference. It was amazing... I learned lot, and had a lot of questions answered. The General Authorities and Apostles of this church are so inspired and so amazing.
This P-day was awesome, we went to the Tibiao Fish Spa. While at the spa, we stuck our feet in this pool, and then fish ate the dead skin off our feet. It was soooo cool, and really relaxing. Then, we had a thirty minute foot massage. It was so great ...I loved it! haha
I'm loving this work. Words don't describe how lucky I am to be blessed to serve a mission, especially here in the Iloilo Mission. Have a great week. I love you all!
P.S. New food tried this week... Soup number 5... you all may throw up when you see what's in it. (Look it up!) I also ate octopus... I didn't like it too much, it was super fishy, but not the worst thing I've ever eaten.
