Speaking of my new companion! Sister Sabio! She is from Bacolad and she is so great! She really only speaks Tagalog right now.... so I'm learning a lot!!! But in the last couple of days we have worn ourselves completely out!!!! we've been filling in any extra second that we have with work and I am loving it!!! It's nice to have someone that loves finding as much as I do!!! because of our finding efforts, we have found 7 new investigators in three days!! I know I know... we're pretty great!!! I'm really excited to be her companion:) She's right now in the homesick stage so I'm trying to keep us as busy as possible, because when we are busy it's not as bad (this I know from experience)
Yesterday while we were teaching a 9 year old about fasting and giving service, we were both so tired (and hungry) that she fell asleep during the lesson which left me to teach a lot of it..... grammar for fasting.... not too good! It's in times like those that I am grateful that I at least have some ability to draw pictures:)
On Sundays, Sister Francia was always the pianist in the ward because none of the members here can play, since she is now gone, what a blessing it is that I GET to play the piano now! haha it was awful! I practiced for 30 minutes only before the meeting. Mind you I've never taken piano so I was relying on my one year of playing the bell set in band from the 7th grade. I did okay with count your many blessings, the sacrament hymn though.... I don't even remember what it was, my mind must have blocked out the details because all that I can remember is that it was awful awful awful. The last hymn though (sweet hour of prayer of course) went really well and I was able to make it through the top hand without a flaw:) there will be a lot of practicing this coming week:(
Love you all! Hope you are having a great new year!!! I just reached the 5 month mark!!! Well... I will... Tomorrow...
