#1's Weekly Email: Week #18

I'm having a super hard time translating her Tagalog. The online translators just aren't doing it for me. I asked her to translate herself, but she only did the very first sentence. Ah well. I tried to do my best.

Anyway, enjoy!

My training is almost over! :D I cannot tell you how excited I am. 

This past week has been good. Yes, I'm still happy. Yes, I'm still working hard. The food is still really good. The people are still really nice. And yes, I'm still really really white. 

So this week, our focus has been Sister E. She is a investigator, and she is fabulous. She has two little boys and they've both got crushes on me. A is 7 and P is 5. They are quite a bit obnoxious but they remind me of my little brothers so it's ok. Sister E is married but her husband is working in another city right now so it's just her at home. It's really hard for her because not only is she running the single mom scene right now but she's also pregnant. Sobrang mahirap sa yung mga nanay dito sa Philippines. When I become a mom I'm never going to complain because I know how hard it is for moms here. And our focus has paid off. She's going to be baptized this next Saturday :) Sobrang masaya kami

Lets see... What else to tell you... We have transfers on the 23rd. We find out what happens tomorrow. I could either be training or have a follow-up trainer... I'm excited to see what happens. 

Ummmm ano pa.... Oh! So you know how we have planning and evaluation every night? This is when Sister C tells me what I did right and what I need to improve. There were three times this last week when I didn't have anything to improve! Whoa... I think my training's almost over :D Yay yay yay yay! :D I'm so happy. So what else... Mom asked for lots of details so I'm trying to think of some... 

Hmmm  nothing else for now. I know that this is where I'm supposed to be right now and I'm so excited to see who I become from all my experiences. Thank you for all your prayers and support. I love you all.

Mahal na mahal ko kayo!
