Remember Lots wife and dont look behind thee!

Monday Monday Monday..... Was P-Day and we went Hiking to a beach in a Typhoon.... yeah we didn't want to sit in the apartment all of P-Day. While we were hiking on the trail to Monashka Bay Beach, the trail was flooded, and I mean it was a river! And the Beach was just over the Hill, soooo we were already drenched because of the Down poor of rain, so we decided to cross it, the water came up to our knees! When we got to the beach I found a purple 16 legged star fish! And a ton of sea Shells! We then went and had Family Home Evening with the Filipino group, we taught them about Lots wife, and how in the beginning of the new year or adventure, dont look back!

Tuesday- We went and helped out at the senior center (old people), We helped them with bowling! Setting up the pins when they get knocked down and keeping score! haha They love us! We tell simple little Jokes while they eat snacks and they laugh so hard, and they are not even that funny! haha Then went and gave Brother Catubig a Priesthood blessing! We met with a potential Investigator, John Lovic. We went over and his wife was there along with John, and we taught the Restoration, focusing on the Book of Mormon and Invited them to read and pray about it and we gave them each one and they look forward to reading it! And they fed us a ton of food when we were not even exposed to eat at there house, (its because they are Filipino). Dinner with the Barcos (Filipino) and they fed us Sinigang (see-nee-gaw-ng) It was soooo goood! Its like a Radish with Meat soup, With rice on the bottom! 

Wednesday-New Years Eve!!! And guess what!? I woke up at 5:30 in the morning with the Flew! I threw up every 30 minutes starting at 5:30 in the morning to like 6 pm oh and a fever! The Mission president wife (Sis. Robinson) Told me to go to the ER. But Instead of doing that I wanted a Priesthood Blessing! So the Second councilor in the bishopric, Brother Jones came over and helped Elder Casia (kaw-sha) give me a blessing! He brought over bread and a ton of water, and crackers! The bishops wife gave me Pepto Bismal! UHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I hate Pepto! It just made me puke more! haha But I was grateful for her trying to help! So that was my last day of the year 2014! 

Thursday- I felt better but I was super super weak! But we went out anyways because I hated being in the apartment doing nothing! We taught 5 lessons today! Boo YEAH!

Friday- Today we had Zone- Meeting over Skype! We got trained on setting goals! We went and taught sister Growthy about Family History because that is what got her Interested in the church! She is Less active, we brought the Grays with us! It went really well! 

Saturday- We spent half the day with our investigator Roy Chace on fixing the truck because the past missionaries liked to take it Rallying! We talked to our vehicle coordinator and he approved it! We had to fill every fluid thing you can think of on that car! Some break cylinders are leaking break fluid and so many other things! Ugh! haha And we saw a ton of people today though! 

Sunday- Fast Sunday!!! It was awesome to be able to bare my testimony about the Savior! A couple less active showed up to church today! Sister Growthy showed up! and the Hadalas!  That deserves a BOO YEAH!  

Well that was my awesome week! Puked out my guts and taught a lot of people! haha what more can you ask for? Haha Well I love you guys! Quick update on Early Rhodes- We have been trying to meet with here and she has not been answering her phone calls and her door! Its Pretty upsetting but we will keep on trying! And an update on the little girl Bristle that we gave a blessing to! We saw them yesterday (Sunday) and they invited us in and we got to know them even more and we didn't share anything yet but we hopefully will next time! There Daughter Bristle is doing amazing! Love you guys! Happy New Years! Remember Lots wife and Don't look behind thee! Bye bye!
