 I hope you all have a Merry Christmas this week! Know that I love you all and am thinking of you all this Christmas Season!

It has been a great week! We had our Zone Christmas Conference it was simple but lots of fun! it was fun seeing my last companion! 
We have been working a lot and having lots of success and fun! 

We had a family home evening with a less active and her investigator family. it was so much fun and when we played games if you lost you got lipstick drawn on your face well everyone else had 1 or 2 lines and MY FACE WAS COVERED IN LIPSTICK! 

I love this gospel and missionary work! Hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

and I will see you all in a few weeks!!!

This has been such an amazing week! On Tuesday I transferred to my new area of Jordan Guimaras. We reported to the office then headed to the Warf where we rode a 20 min boat ride to the Island of Guimaras! We got off the boat loaded all the luggage's onto a trike and headed to our apartment! It took about a 30-45 min trike ride to our apartment! Oh man our area is BIG!!!! We got to the apartment and unpacked and bought food and then it was time for sleep! 
The next day we went out to work!!! I didn't realize that I would be hiking in this area... Haha. We literally hike everywhere all day long! it is quite the exercise but it is so much fun! I can see the true faith of the members here because the have to hike down from their homes to catch a tricycle to go to church on Sunday! Sometimes while we are working I don't think there are any houses because all it is, is a hiking trail but eventually we end up at a house! 

The awesome thing about our apartment is that we have an AIRCON!!!!!!!! the first area in my mission with an aircon. We also have a washing machine and a water heater in the shower! Lots of blessings here in Guimaras!

We have a few progressing investigators here but they are REALLY progressing! they all came to church yesterday it was so exciting! and the members were so awesome in fellowshipping them! 

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new area and my companion is so sweet! We went on a hike today to some falls! it is so amazing here! Love you all!
