Life is happy!

Dearest family, I love you!

Sorry this is a little short this week - not much time!

My companion, Sister Niebla, will return home from her mission tomorrow! Wow, time flies. I will be working with Sister Gungon, another sister in my zone (Dagupan 4th ward), for the next few days. Transfer day is on Friday. They are closing one of the areas - and so they will be transferring 2 of the remaining 3 of us, but we won't know who gets to stay in Dagupan until Wednesday. So for the past few days I've been working with Sister Billones in her area, and Sister Walker has been working with Sister Niebla, in order for us all to be familiar with both of the areas, for whoever has to take over both of them. It's been fun and busy, and I've loved getting to know the other investigators. But it's also been kind of melancholy since I won't have a chance to say goodbye to my investigators (if I end up being transferred). But maybe I'll get lucky. We'll see what happens.

I will miss Sister Niebla. She is such a happy person and spreads sunshine wherever she goes. Also, working with Sister Billones has been so wonderful. She is such a hard working missionary, and we've grown to be very good friends. The other day she told me about how she grew up in very poor cirumstances with 7 siblings and no electricity in their home. Often they only had 2 cups of rice to share between all of them, and so their mom would add water and make it into a soup to stretch it. I've felt the spirit very strongly as we've been teaching together. It has been amazing. I love Dagupan! I love the people here. I love the culture. I wouldn't mind if I just served in this same area for my whole mission, but I know that I'll grow to love other areas too.

Ok, gots to go! I love you! (especially you!)
The Gospel is true! We are so blessed! Life is so wonderful!
Thank you for everything you do!
Wow, you're really in the Bahamas right now?! Oh jolly! Have fun!
