Hey guys! :)

Ahh, where do i even begin? should i start with the somewhat exciting news, or the super exciting news? hah! lers start with the super exciting! sister flordeliza jueco was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints this last weekend. whoohoo! it was such a great night on saturday :) what else happened this week? my kabahays (roommates) and i, minus sister kumar because she was the camera girl, had our first "ligo sa ulan" (shower in the rain) on friday morning...sunday for lunch sister kumar made us sapasui! [Mom: it was the kind we love; with pisupo in it!] hay naku!

I forgot something. before i get to the somewhat exciting news..okay so sister jueco was baptized this last weekend, right..let me just share with you all the sweet little miracle the lord blessed my life with at her baptismal service. so there was no one to play the piano. before everyone really started showing up, sister peralta and i were messing around on the piano acting like we knew how to play and stuff. *sidenote* i USED to play. i took piano lessons from the time i was 8 till i was 15. but i havent legitimately played since then. haha! like, i havent played in public..cuz i suck now :) anyways, long story short, i was asked to play the piano at the baptismal service, and I DID! hahaha! Ma, did you read that?! i played the piano in front of everyone at sister juecos baptism. hahah! of course it wasnt perfect but everyone sure was able to sing along to the tune :) i LOVE tender mercies! now for the somewhat exciting new. still not to sure how i feel about it...but thats okay. ive been called to serve as an STL (sister training leader) and ill be transferring to antipolo zone tomorrow morning. (its transfer week this week) my cute new companion is sister arroyo. if you guys remember her, we were kabahays (roommates) in taytay for 3 transfers. so i know her pretty well :) Ma, im sure youre wondering what an STL does and all that...i wish i could tell ya, but i dont even really know myself, in detail, what my responsibilities will be. all i know is that my main focus as an STL is to help my sisters :) Ma, ask Nece what it is. she was one in NZ. Nece, explain it, please! :)

President Koster called me sunday night, extended the call, and asked if i would be willing to accept. i asked, "do i have a choice?" and he said, "not really!" haha! (MODED!) im nervous but excited all at the same time. im excited to lose myself even more in the lords work and even more excited that ill be able to lose myself through service to my sisters :) i still have SO much to learn here in the field and i know the lord has prepared a way for me to learn through this calling. im super sad to be leaving sister peralta and the people in my area. but, ive learned the lords will is always better than the plans and wants that i have for myself.

Before i go, my favorite scripture for the week and a little thought :)

Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did waxstronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer andfirmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls withjoy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and thesanctification of their hearts, which sanctification comethbecause of their yielding their hearts unto God.

Helaman 3:35

The only way to truly surrender your will to the lords is by giving him your heart. give your heart, might, mind, and strength. leave everything to the lord. if you do, everything will be the way its meant to be :) i promise! god lives. he loves us. jesus is the christ; his gospel is true and ever lasting :) mahal na mahal ko po kayong lahat! sana, magkakarooon po kayo ng magandang linggo :) hugs and kisses from the pines!
