Haha...thats about all I know...just kiddin. Actually yesterday I taught my first discussion in Tagalog! To a progressing investigator...that went....interesting!
One thing I am grateful for is this experience reminds me a lot of my old Roommate Assenet. I am grateful for her because I feel like that experience prepared me to be here now. Because remember when Assenet first moved here from Mexico
she didn't speak a lick of english...and I got frustrated because I had to teach her all of her english? At least at that time I could speak spanish a little bit to communicate the basics...now I've got nothin...but it prepared me for her. It's the same thing. I have to be "Mom". Help her pay for things, take her places, communicate things to her again, help her do everything. It's good for me though,by galli the Lord will teach me patience!
Yesterday was really the first day I felt "Mabuti" here! (good) I enjoyed myself. I am loving the Elders and Sisters in my district. Sister Maiava and I have made friends with sister Morton & Sister Funaki, and we all get along really well! The Elders in my district act like they're 10...but I love it too! They are fantastic, and good guys! I actually ran into a few friends here too! It's fun to see them and where they're going. Also...I ran into Bud's nephew! Brother Powell! He is going to Quezon City Philippines, and he has been here 7 weeks. The elders in his district told me he is amazing at the language and catching on really well!
As far as my running goes Kenna, you'll be proud...another Sister, Sister Ycmatt from Bountiful Utah loves to run too! The 2 of us go running...and I've been able to run about 2.5 miles at least a day...kinda keepin it up! :)
Yesterday Sister Maiava and I taught our first progressing investigator! It is amazing...I can already introduce myself, ask questions, say please and thank you, say prayers and bear my testimony in Tagalog! I get frustrated a lot with the language. I just want to learn it faster, and I have so much to learn still in order to communicate effectively! But...I do have to realize I've really only been here for 3 days!!! That's pretty good...I guess!
