Happy only 190 days left!
It's been such a trunky fest out here. Right now I'm sitting in SJDM, the second area I was assigned to. We got permission to come out and buy souvenirs for everyone before we come home. It's been way fun and I dropped like 2000 pesos just barely. Hope you all like your gifts!
Things have been good. I'm not sure what happened, but we got punted like crazy this week, but the lessons we did get in were good. We had probably my favorite Family Home Evening that I've had yet yesterday. I swear, I fell into a Narnia hole and landed back in America for a bit. They all speak English over there and they're way dope, and rich so their house looks like an American one. It was way fun! We had pasta, FHE, games and the mom had a whole lesson prepared for her kids. Usually we have to do everything at FHE's. We're trying to get on their good side because the dad isn't a member and we want to teach him. He seems way chill, but just very shy.
We had zone conference this past Wednesday and it was good. Elder Jackson and I gave a workshop on "Listening with Spiritual Ears". President Sperry gave a way good workshop about the Godhead and everything. It was soooooo good. Love that man!
Also, our ward did a little "Mini MTC", so that was fun. Too bad only 3 people showed up, but it was fun. We just taught a lesson and then they all came out and worked with us for a bit. Then later that night, we had our Area Broadcast for the Philippines to review our success from last year and set goals for 2014.
All's been going great, still. See ya soon!
