My 21st Birthday!
December 15, 2015
There were 3 birthdays in our apartment this week. We had little celebrations for each person on their birthday (their favorite food and a little mini cake). We hid and shot confetti at one of the sisters!
Birthday Packages from my mom and my grandma!
We had a birthday lunch today with our district. It was supposed to be at the park but it's raining so we went to the chapel instead. We bought lechon manok, sister Lopez made pasta and elders brought a fruit salad thing and cake. It was actually really fun. Simple, but fun!
Saying goodbye to the Cano family was really hard. Sister Kim and Jovelyn (her mom) both came to church sunday for the second sunday in a row and it is really looking like Kim will be baptized.
Saying goodbye to Sister Gementiza was also really hard. Also, I found out that I am going to be a New Missionary Trainer for my last 12 weeks of my mission. 12 weeks of Training--kinda like 12 days of Christmas;) I definitely feel the weight of this calling, but prayer will get me through for sure and I'm excited to see what kind of impact I can have.
This will probably be my last email until after Christmas so I hope you all enjoy the season and have a great time with your famiies! Remember the reason why Christ was born almost 2000 years ago. It wasn't so that we would have a day to eat yummy food and give gifts (although that sure is fun). He was born so that He could atone for our sins and thus provide a way for us to return to Him.
