First, gotta get two things out there.
1) Dragons are real. Mosiah 20:11
2) Aliens are real, too. Hebrews 11:34
3) Can't find evidence of zombies :(
Alright! So transfers went down this past week!!!
Tuesday night at 11pm (so late!) We got the text that Sister Hatch would be going to Tagbi...and I would be staying and training a new missionary!!!!
Meet Sister Orzal - my first anak (GREENIE!) in the mission!!!! She's so awesome. She's from Luzon and speaks Tagalog. Which sometimes proves difficult in lessons cuz I don't speak Tagalog very well. But, needless to say, my Tagalog has increased 20 fold in the last few days! She's teaching me a lot. And she's still learning English!
P-day was great! And this will be short again cuz we're going back to Tagbi so I can buy a new watch! Getting on the boat Thursday back to Cebu, the strap got caught and ripped off. So sad. Gotta get a new one now :D
Amazing experience...going to Cebu to get my anak! I traveled with Sister Mahinay and stayed in Consolacion with Sister Lange and then, the next day at the church, I saw sister Juliet!!!!! So awesome :D
Enjoy the picture of the awesome dragonfly. This type of dragonfly is all over our area. And they move really slowly, so you can pick them up and hold them and stuff. They just play dead when you pick them up and hold really still. I'll send a picture of me holding one. It's pretty cool. And they really are that bright red color.
So...we have this awesome investigator who will be baptized in a few weeks named Sister G. She's 20 and she has a 9 month old son named A. And we went to teach her the other day and when we showed up, A in this frilly little pink shirt with ruffles. Then I told Adam that real men wear pink - he just smiled. He doesn't understand anything yet...still too young. But it turned out Sister G had just bought that for him when she went to ukay-ukay ("oo-k-eye oo-k-eye" like a yard sale - it's piles of left over clothes from Goodwill and DI that are sold here for a really cheap price and it's basically the only way people here can buy clothes). She went there to buy some modest clothes because we had taught her the Law of Chastity and how modesty applies. In terms of all my investigators with a baptismal date, she really gets it. She was so prepared. We had to drop her for a transfer (with Sister Salima) to get her there, but now, she really learns, understands and applies. So even though she's poor, when we taught her the L.O.C. she went out and bought a whole new wardrobe so that she could live the law of modesty. She's absolutely amazing. She really is grounded in Ang Basahon ni Mormon and trusts God so much. She's getting baptized on July 12.
I'm doing my best out here. Representing the Warner name and my Savior's name. And I'm ridiculously happy to do it.
I'm very excited. The work is progressing so fast :D
Alright - gotta run! But I love you all!!!!
