Well, we just got back from a zone activity. It was a lot of fun. We did the zone olympics and played sports and a bunch of different games. Man, I just can’t handle games because I am way too competitive! We played all of these games and our district lost every one of them. I was so angry! All of the games we totally should have won too. I mean I know its just all for fun and games, but it really bothered me! We came home with the bronze medal, so that’s what I am wearing right now. Yeah not cool. And it was one of those things where we got these legit legit jerseys, and didn’t even rep them! So it made us look even worse. Haha sorry I am just venting about how we lost and I was mad. Lets just say it is a good thing that zone activities happen only once a transfer 🙂
We had interviews this week! It went really good. They did it a little bit different though. President met with each companionship instead. Gave us advice and talked about what we should be doing in our areas to improve them. Then we met with each of the AP’s and they each went over with our companionship about a specific principle.hIt was super helpful! I liked it because that day is just spent with the other missionaries, and lots of socializing haha. But we left and went home before the other companionships were done meeting with pres and then they called us back because he said he wasn’t done with us and wanted to have personal ones with us too! It was so great. I was really glad. It is just the best being able to have one on one conversations with president. He is so awesome and inspired! My very favorite thing that was said that day was from Sister Barrientos. Haha she just got back from the USA spending time with her dad. She came into our district meeting and then she got up to leave. She tried to open the door and the door knob was kind of jammed and broken. She finally got it open and she says, “The doorknobs are not like that in the United States….” Hahahaha I just bust up laughing. It was hilarious! Anyways, just random but I loved it. Because I mean there are definitely broken door knobs in the US haha.
We had exchanges this week and I got to go with Sister Porter. It was a blast!!! And she helped enlighten my mind and understand how tagalog works! YAY LOVE HER. Since she went to BYU we just got to talk about life and whatever. They are starting the family history workshops here in Aparri and Sister Porter told me that the family history center in salt lake is the coolest thing ever. So she is taking me there when we get home. I am excited.
Well, we are moving this week, and there is a lot of work to do! So we will be moving on friday to our new beautiful apartment… pictures to come next week. Can you tell i am excited? haha! There are a lot of people to teach so we really need to dig down and work our butts off! This work is tiring and hard, but it pays off. Thanks for all your love!
PS sorry for not really finishing my letter last week haha i guess i forgot haha i don’t know what i was thinking.
P.S.S. Funny thing…. This week a man asked me where I was from, I said the USA, he said, oh why aren’t you black like your president? Hahahahaha okay laugh.
