This and That

NOTE from Mom--I have been bad at updating the blog, sorry. Erin has been ill the last few weeks with a little lung infection/cold thing, but she is feeling much better now. She hasn't really written a blog post for me so I will post a few excerpts from emails home the last few weeks and lots of pictures.

It is the weirdest feeling that I will be in America in 6 weeks {we are down to 4 1/2 now}. I feel excited of course that I get to see you all again but I don't feel like my work is finished. We have this one golden investigator but I won't be able to see his baptism because I'll be home by then. Happy and sad at the same time.

We have some really awesome people we are teaching. This coming week is transfer week and I just hope I'm not transferred yet because I love these people. {she stayed in Illagan} But if I am, it is for the good. Diyos ang bahala. I really can't think of English today. Sorry. I've started an English class here and we've had a couple members and investigators come. I didn't realized how hard it is to teach a language. I told the class that Tagalog is not allowed inside the room. They are all speaking English, but I'm the one that is mixing my English and Tagalog up. Sorry in advance if you don't understand what I am saying when I get home.

This week, I felt the spirit most as we were in a lesson with one of our investigators. She has a lot of problems going on in her life but we testified how much Jesus Christ knows exactly what is going on and the things she wants changed, he will help, but there are things we have to do as well in order to help ourselves. Through the grace of the Savior we can have our weaknesses be made strong.

You all might be trunky, but I most definitely am not. Still working hard. I'm good though. The work is good. We have some solid people we are teaching, but I don't think I will be able to see them be baptized. They live in our farthest area and we can't get to them every day, but they come to church every week and were most definitely prepared to hear the gospel.

Hope all is well with you,
Sister Koncurat
