Hello friends and family... What a great and wonderful week... #miracles.
AND… HOLY BIRTHDAYS... I think every member in Passi, including the missionaries have a birthday in November. Let’s say, I think must have gained a little weight this week with all the food and celebrations..haha and the celebrations continue next week… A great part of the week was Elder Norris Birthday on Wednesday. A party had been in the plans for awhile, but we had a surprise birthday party for him. It was so much fun, and we had so much good food! Elder Norris was really surprised and happy that we had a party for him. The funniest part was that as he was blessing the food, Sister "J" pulled out a cake and I had a huge party popper that I was planning on pulling right after he was done with his prayer. Right as Elder Norris said “Amen”, I popped the popper and we all sang happy birthday. The only mistake I made was that I didn’t realize how much stuff was in the popper and how far it would go…I ended up popping confetti all over the food..whoops! haha! Needless to say, we spent the next 15 minutes cleaning up the confetti so that we could eat the food. Look closely at the pictures. Haha!
Also this past Sunday was the birthday of "E", a member that we are close with, and our Nanay here in Passi. So…we had another surprise party. Onee thing I have forgotten to mention about Passi, is that they are notorious for amazing pineapple. Let’s say…I testify that it is the best and sweetest stuff ever.
And now this upcoming week is my birthday!!! And one more story... On Tuesday, I heard our gate open up, and the senior couple brought me not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 packages and a piñata. I am spoiled and embarrassed, but…love ya ma! (It just happens that between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Logan’s birthday…he got a lot of packages that were all delivered at once…)
So this week was also great work wise. "L" will be baptized on Saturday, we are all so excited!!! It'll be so good. The "B" family is doing great, and Sister "B" came to church this week. It was funny because she came to church and realized that several of her students are members…it was so funny. It was so cool to see the Ward fellowship her.
One of the best things that happened this week was on Saturday night. We had set an appointment with a few people at this one house. We got there and literally every one we invited,attended. It was great! Everyone definitely felt the spirit, and said they were happy because they knew God’s servants were in their house. It was cool and we are very excited for them.
"J" is also doing great, and Elsie is amazing. We're hoping her baptism will be on the 25 of December!
So yeah amo na this week was great and I love being a missionary!
Have a great week.
Love you all, plangga ta kamo
