Hi to my favorite family!

Hey there!

Well, first of all, I have to tell you that I was awakened at 3:30am last night by what sounded like two cats arguing outside about who could meow louder. Seriously, they kept going "meow...MeOw...meow...MEOW!" And then every once in a while, a dog would cut in to try to quiet the quarreling kitties, but they just kept up their meowing. And pretty soon a chicken started bak bak BAK-ing as if it wanted to join in. Let me tell you, it's exactly what I wanted to listen to at 3:30 in the morning.

It was actually pretty cold last night and this morning. I actually kind of wished I had a light blanket. I never thought I'd want one here in the Philippines, but I guess I was wrong.

So, tomorrow is transfers, and ...dun dun DUN...Sister Cabato and I are staying together! Yay! I don't have to leave Laoag 3!

Oh, and guess what, last Thursday, I had an exchange with Sister Woahn, the one that Mom is emailing her mom. I wasn't sure how it would go because we are both American and relatively new and still working on our Tagalog, but it went really well. It was a really fun exchange and it was really nice to be able to talk to another American sister. I really like Sister Woahn, she's really nice.

Wanna hear something kinda cute? We have these 2 little girls who live on our street, and every time we come out or go back to our apartment, they run up to us to shake our hands and give us high fives and kisses. They are really sweet. :)

So, I just love Sister Mimi. She is so excited to learn everything she can about the gospel. She is so excited to be married in the temple someday. She is so different from other people I have taught. Teaching her makes me more excited about teaching the gospel I wish we could teach her every single day. Her grandma usually sits in on her lessons, and she is really cute and old, and she forgets things a lot, and she'll ask us the same question 2 or 3 times in a lesson. It makes me smile.

I love the gospel so much, and I am so grateful to be able to share it. We really are so blessed to be members of this church. I hope none of you will ever take that for granted. Read the Book of Mormon every day! I cannot emphasize that enough.

I love you all so much!

Love, Sister Boekweg
