I apologize in advance for the shortness of this email. Sometimes a girl's just gotta talk to her mom, and sometimes as a result, you only have a few minutes to type out a quick email to everyone!So this week was a blur. This was one of the fastest weeks we've had. Probably also because our p-day was on Thursday, so it mixed everything up quite a bit!
Sunday: We had five investigators at church! Which is one of the most of my entire mission! Plus, my dear Charlyn and new friend Carl came to church. They looked great. And my boy Carl is just as gwapo as can be. There was a talk in church that was so good. It was about grattitude and love. The Filipino culture is so shy, and often, it's really awkward for them to say I love you. Even to their family or anything like that. They are some of the most loving people I know, they ove the heck out of me, but they just are too shy to say it. Well, over the pulpit this amazing returned missionary, Annalee, taught about how we have to say it to others. She read a cute story that had the whole audience crying, and then she said over the pulpit "I love you mom and dad" and then covered her bright red face. The whole congregation alomst died of shock and embarassment as well. But the coolest thing happened, the whole sacrament hall got really loud, really noisy, because everyone was looking at each other and saying "I love you". It was so cool to sit back and watch as everyone so shyly and with bright red faces, smiling from ear to ear said I love you. I think it's one of those things I"ll remembe rfor the rest of my life.
Love you huh!
