Hello Family!!!Well, I am in Calbayog! I've been here for almost a week now, and let me tell ya, it is exactly the opposite of little baby town Allen.
Human of the Week: My new companion - Sister Erandio: from Manila, part of my batch (meaning she came to Tacloban with our group from the Manila MTC), she's 22, already finished college and majored in accounting, is almost perfectly fluent in English (thank heavens!), and absolutely cracks me up. Because English is a second language to her, the way she words things is so funny. She's like my Philippina other half. We have a lot of fun together.
So my challenge this week is to try to be more aware of that. All of the blessings in our lives. There are probably more than we realize.
For example, carpet. That is a blessing. Enjoy it for me!:)
The weirdest thing happened this transfer. A ton of people from my batch were paired up with eachother. Sister Prudencio even got Sister Davis as a companion - they were companions in the MTC together. Haha, I'm sure they're loving that. We're all paired up with our batch and everyone in the mission who's not in our batch says it's crazy and it's never happened before. We all aren't quite sure what President's thinking, but we think it might mean we're gonna train.There is a giant group of missionaries who go home after this transfer - in March. He might be putting us all together if there's a big group of missionaries in the MTC right now so that we can be pushed more to learn and grow so that we're prepared to train. Who knows whats gonna happen. Just have to wait and see what the future holds!
