Oh. my. gulay.
This week took a turn for the INSANE! last night at 5 my companion got a call from president saying she would be emergency transferred in the morning, and that he had a special assignment for both of us. She has a new companion who is really struggling. I got a new companion as well! My assignment was to take on a companion from the Tacloban mission. 15 of them got transferred to our mission. She is so great and has such a good attitude. She has been through so much, and lost a lot of her stuff. This is so crazy! And i am kinda freaking out about the short notice! But it's life...and i love this girl already(: Other than that...it's been a really normal week. Just work and work! We are not able to have p day nest week until friday because of the area presidency conference. I am so excited for that! A new waltermart opened like across the street from our neighborhood and it has everything we could possibly need. and a MANG INASAL! pumped. but really.
I went on exchanges this week with Sister Asuncion, and oh my gosh i learned so much! i love her. Apparently like none of our investigators had actually received a personal witness to know that the Book of Mormon is true. Thats basically essential for conversion. So we resolved concerns all day. It's been something on my mind for a while but I was pretty hesitant to talk about it with my companion because we disagreed a little about what we should do for them. But we definitely resolved that(: I was so happy. I just felt like my mind opened up a little more, and my investigators felt so much love from me.
My tagalog is improving, i feel like i made a big jump this week! YES. also my new comp is a philippina so she its about to take an even bigger jumnp. her english is really good, too. AND she makes adobo. holla to that.
After exchanges, i made TONS of goals for this transfer and for my mission. I felt kinda overwhelmed with how much i need t get better. But all is well and i am working on them.
I love this gospel so much. Honestly, i am just so blessed to be here and help people feel the love their Savior has for them.
Love you all!
