Heyyyy everyone ❤

12 months down, 6 more to go! officially hit my one year mark last Friday :) yaaay! its weird, because i honestly don't feel like ive been away that long. i do feel, however, that this last week has taken forever to get to pday. haha! and it has. we didn't have pday this last monday because of our temple day this week. normally, we have temple day every other transfer. if you all remember, we had temple day last transfer. we got another one this transfer because the manila temple will be closed for the next 3 months due to renovation. so they squeezed us in one more time before it officially closes :) i cant tell you how grateful i am to have the temple within our mission :)

This last week has been another week full of smiles and laughs :) i love sister peralta! ive got an "experience" that i wanna share with you all. im crazy, talaga! haha! so, sister peralta and i are teaching this really cute family, the jueco family. i love them! :) they have a word of wisdom (WOW) concern that we found out about on Sunday night after sharing the WOW lesson with them. sister jueco took our challenge/commitment to live the WOW pretty easily; she said living the WOW wasnt going to be a problem. brother jueco, on the other hand, knows itll be a little more of a challenge and before accepting the commitment, thought about it for a good 10 minutes.

After letting the spirit do his thing, brother jueco said, "sis. Leausa kung susudin ko yung word of wisdom, kakain ka ng balot." translation: if i live the word of wisdom, you have to eat balot. (ill let you all google what balot is..) the spirit mustve been REAL strong because i enthusiastically said, "SIGE PO!" (okay!) shook brother jueco's hand and sealed the deal. im crazy! hahah! it took me a couple minutes to wrap my head around what i just agreed to, and when i did..i wanted to cry. LOL! sister peralta promised to eat chicken feet. balot wouldn't have been a legit challenge for her because she eats it, like, every other day. YUCK! i really dont know what i was thinking, and i really dont know how im going to eat this balot, but im sure if this cute little family can live the WOW, i can ATTEMPT to eat balot. haha! im gonna need you all to pray REAL HARD for me. im gonna need a MIRACLE to stomach this one. hah! the scriptures do teach that the Lord will provide a way for everything, right? haha!

I hope and pray that you all have a fabulous week this week :) whatever challenges arise this week, face them with a smile on your face knowing that, "this too shall pass." i love you all sooooo much and miss you like crazy! thanks for all your emails, love, and support! mahal na mahal ko kayong lahat!
