Me and Sis J went to the temple this morning around 6:30 a.m. to do initiatories and every time I go I think of you momma! It is the most peaceful place ever and I like going in the morning best because I can't fall asleep, I think I am most awake at that time!
The spiritual growth here is seriously unreal. My knowledge has grown so much and I have never felt so close and comforted by my Heavenly Father. What an amazing experience this is!!
This Tuesday we had a beautiful devotional from Elder Zwick of the seventy and his wife. They gave beautiful talks! I really can't wait for this Tuesday when we hear from...wait for it...please someone do a drumroll...ELDER L. TOM PERRY!!! MAGSABI ANO?!?!?! SAY WHAAAA?!?! So excited. Devotional nights are my favorite.
The language is seriously coming along so well!! I'm fluent. HA! jkjk. We are really working hard at it and its totally clicking and making sense! Which is the best feeling ever! We are so good we gave our investigator a pamphlet in Cebuano..WE DON'T EVEN SPEAK CEBUANO. We thought it was Tagalog..which was totally funny cuz I was confused, sister Jackson was confused, our investigator was REALLY confused...hahaha but our next lesson the next day was ON POINT. Like we totally nailed it. *happy dance* we were so proud. seriously tho every night before I fall asleep I just have Tagalog words running through my head, and in the shower, and in class, really all day long actually...

-When I "go into the field" its like figuratively and literally...think about that...oh and yeah mom, I heard there was a typhoon in Baguio??? Thats about it tho, we didn't hear much else.
-Highlight:I met the @mormonprobs guy from twitter. Not only did he know me HE KNEW MY NAME! And no, its not cuz I was wearing a name tag hahaha like WHA?! He's twitter famous and he knew me. It doesn't get better than that. (jk there is a lot of things better than that, I just thought its was funny I met him)
