Busy week in the Philippines

Hello everyone! 
This week was a really good week. It was one of the busiest and craziest weeks of my mission, but it was fun and so that makes it all worth it! For this week I'll give a day-by-day recap: 

Monday: P-DAY!! And then we had to get ready for our Zone Training because we had a TON of information to cover in 1.5 hours. 

Tuesday: We had a big service project with half of the mission (Elders only) to help repack relief goods for the people in Tacloban. We partnered with a tv company here that is called ABS-CBN, which is the second biggest tv company here in Manila. One of the actors for the network's name is Eruption and he is a returned missionary/ cousin to one of the ZL's here and so they invited us to come work with them. It was really cool to do the service and be on tv, but we also got to meet a bunch of celebrities and some really really pretty Filipina's (actresses.. :)) Haha and then later that day we had our Zone Training which worked out well. 

Wednesday: Zone Conference with President Revillo, which took almost the whole day and then my companion and I travelled with one of our DL's so we could do a baptismal interview for their investigator. That was my first interview! 

Thursday: We worked for most of the day, but at the end we were working in a dark area of our area and I couldn't see anything and we didn't have a light and I accidently fell into a gutter and if you know anything about the gutters here, they are gross. So I had to go wash off at a member's house (the bottoms of my pant legs, socks, and new shoes) but they smelled so bad that we had to travel like an hour back to our apartment so I could change.. 

Friday: Weekly Planning and then we had a working day and it was really good. 

Saturday: Service project with the Sister's in our zone to help one of their investigators rebuild a part of their house and then a Ward Missionary activity in the evening to train our ward missionaries (put on by us). 

Sunday: We had 14 investigators at church, including 10 YW age girls and so that was stressful trying to find people to fellowship.. Then we had a Stake meeting that took forever and we have another one this Sunday. 

Crazy week! 

Love you all!
