Hi Everyone!

i got on and had 26 emails. i feel really cool!

guess what everyone?? i got my hair done and it is normal! its dark brown. i felt super weird getting it done, like wasting my time. but oh well it needed it. i looked like a clown. but we just did a session in the temple and it was amazing and then tried to find our way back home through the big city. let's just say, my life is crazy in the philippines. one day you will see all my pictures and just think i am SO cool cause I am.

so my life got like 10X better than last week. every morning i told myself, if i can do this week i can do anything. and look! i did it. so i am good the rest of my mission. my comp is the best we just laugh all day. she is so good in tagalog it drives me crazy!! what the! why is she so good and i sucked so bad when i was that "young". oh well its the gift of the tongues i guess.

i bore my testimony in sacrament meeting because i am the new missionary, and i told everyone that i love their people and they are all so faithful and beautiful. then i got tears in my eyes because honestly its the coolest feeling to be up there looking out and seeing such faithful people. i just love them. i may not come home and stay in the philippines forever. okay?

this area is huge and hard. so i am exhausted every single day. i really don't know what to say!! i feel like nothing cool is happening. last week we had an FHE with this family and it was kind of the cutest thing EVER. i made them the week before get the "program" ready and told them if they got everything ready we would bring treats and coloring book pages (which parker sent me and i just photo copy them and its the GREATEST thing ever-thank you) and it was so cute. then we played games after and its not funny in english but me and my comp were laughing so hard at them. the two olders girls are my FAV they just hug me all the time and hold my hand. then last night this cute little girl had a make up kit so i did her make up for her. i told the family i only want 6 girls haha no boys and they all told me i am crazzzyyyy. haha

maybe next week i will have more to say. oh on sunday we had a dinner appointment and the branch president and his wife are super american and speak really great english but they made us a SALAD! i have not had salad in so long. i think i ate the whole thing. then me and my comp got really trunky cause she showed us her wedding pictures! haha so cute.

just know that i am doing great! i am trying to figure out this area and trying to do my best cause time is going too fast each day. i hope everyone is having spiritual experiences or praying for more of them. i am so grateful for this wonderful experience in my life. i wouldn't trade it for a thing :)

love you,
