Sister Hess here with your news from this last week here in the beautiful country of the Philippines.
Working hard always and striving to ignore all the stares still and all the calls of "Barbie! Barbie!"
This week has been harder than usual because of course missions are definitely not sunshine and butterflies and unicorns always. This week we didn't get to teach a lot of people because they aren't ever home. It's really frustrating but we're happy anyways because we trust in Heavenly Father and know that he will support us and that everyone will hear the Gospel in it's fullness eventually here on Earth.
We got to watch General Conference this weekend. There were a lot of talks that I didn't get to hear but the ones that I did get to hear were amazing. I definitely agree with President Monson when he said that this was the most inspirational conference he's been to. I learned so many things. My journal is almost full of amazing quotes and inspirational things. Can't wait to get the Liahona.
The best part of conference though was the feeling afterwards. It renewed my desire to help these people and share the gospel with them.
So not much new to share and my time is almost up. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
I love you all. Until next week!
