Busy Week

This week was really busy and fun! But not the most productive missionary week. We had our Christmas Conference on Tuesday and Wednesday with our whole mission! Every zone performed something and a lot of them were really funny! After the conference we went to Macdonalds with our zone! YUMMY!!

Then on Friday, we had our ward Christmas party! Almost every Filipino Christmas party has Lechon so thats what the pig is haha! Really Yummy!!

On Saturday we were walking from an appointment and walked by a less active that we have been visiting. It was their daughter Pang's birthday so then pulled us in to eat some food haha. Also Saturday night was Bishop's birthday and Bishop cooked the rest of the Pig and fed us dinner! They also fed us Dinuguan which was pig intestines cooked with pigs blood. It wasnt the best but it also wasnt horrible haha.

This morning we played basketball with our Zone and some Youth. These 4 youth were inactive until the Elders started playing basketball with them every Monday and now they come to church every week haha. So yes, I do have a testimony of the power of basketball haha.

Christmas time in the Philippines is very difficult for missionary work so we have had a lot of punted days recently (not available) Everyone is always busy with Christmas parties, or school, or they leave town to visit family!! Busy Gid Tanan!!!!!
We have been focusing a lot on the Agravadiors this week trying to work out Nanay kag Cynde and get them ready to be baptized.

Two weeks ago was Ive's pagpabunyag and now I finally have the pictures! (She is 20 BTW)

I love my Heavenly Father so much and I am so happy that I get to serve him here in the Philippines! The Filipino people are awesome and so many of them are just waiting to hear about this Gospel!!! I love you all! Enjoy the Christmas season!
