9 down 9 to go!!

9 months down, 9 to go! Can't believe I have hit that half-way mark. The last nine months have been full of so much spiritual awesomeness, some interesting things, and just plain weird things. But, overall,  these last nine months have been the greatest, most memorable times that I have ever experienced. From my first moments in the MTC, to the first night in the Philippines when I ate ballut and woke up with a giant spider crawling near my head, to realizing that the language they taught in the MTC was not the same language that they speak here!!  OK, it is, but it totally sounds different and so much faster! To helping my first investigator enter the waters of baptism, and helping so many more in since. Oh and that one time, when someone came up to us while we were sitting with some members outside their house and told us that he just killed someone...yeah, that was pretty weird...(no worries, he didn't actually kill anybody)... Gotta love the Philippines. Anyway, I have so many memories already.   I know I am right where I need to be. I'm so grateful to be apart of this great work and I love serving the the people of the Philippines.

With Thanksgiving coming up this week, I thought I would list a few things to express my gratitude.

I am THANKFUL for:

1. My companion. She is great and super helpful. She really teaches me how to be a better missionary.
Birthday balloon boxing, that's all. 

2. My housemates-for the little things of service they do everyday, they're amazing!
They woke me up at midnight to surprise me with a cake and in turn its traditional to do a service for someone on your birthday, so I made them pancakes for breakfast. 

3. All the members here and back home that continue to help in the work, whether it is working with us missionaries, or simply praying for us. Every little thing helps!

4. The little miracles we are blessed with everyday. Some days it is a simple thing, like the being able to teach someone that always turns us away, and others bigger, but everyday, the Lord's hand is there to bless us.

5.  Thank you for the birthday wishes...I felt the love for sure!

And lastly, but definitely not least..

6. I am thankful for my family-for all the love and support they give me. It might seem like a small thing, but it is a big deal for me, especially after seeing so many that don't have even get a note of support.  I LOVE YOU ALL!

Thank YOU!

Remember to give thanks to those around you, especial our Heavenly Father who blesses us everyday!

Here's to the next 9 months!!    
Mahal ko kayo!
