No transfer this time....

Hi dear family and friends,  

This week was transfer week. but no transfers… I am still here in Villasis with Sister Untong. Which means that I will be with her until the end of her mission. I am happy because we have some families that are progressing and are scheduled to be baptized. So I may be in Villasis for a while which is good because I love this area! They celebrate Valentine’s Day here in the Philippines of course. Its not a huge deal but there is a Valentine’s party planned for the ward here on Friday which that will be a lot of fun. 
My companion Sister Untong is from Mindanao or the southern part of the Philippines. She is really cool and we get a long really well, that is maybe why we are together for two transfers.  The weather is a bit cooler, YAY!  But…STILL LOTS OF MOSQUITOS!

Edward and Silvia are the couple I’ve told you about. Edward seemed like he was going to be hard-hearted and non-receptive at first, but from the moment we taught the first vision, he has completely softened and wants this for his family. He of course, has a drinking and smoking problem that is proving to be difficult, but I think their conversion means more when they have to sacrifice and work to qualify, so for me, it is a blessing. We finally got him to pray in lessons, and he weeps every time, because he feels the spirit. On Monday, we had family home evening with them, and when he gave the closing remarks, he thanked us for bringing the blessing of the gospel to their family. We were all a bit teary eyed because of his remarks. This work is so much bigger than me and my companion. The miracles and the change that I witness in others is a testament of His influence in this work. There really is no other power that could do this. 

Wow, I can’t believe eight months is coming up.... SO FAST. It is killing me and makes me sad. I have been waiting for this my whole life and it is flying by. :(((  I LOVE WHAT I’M DOING!!!

Gotta go. Tell Walker to date nice girls, and CUT his hair.
