Hope you all had a good week, loved hearing from you about all that happened this past week. A lot happened this past week, so I've got lots of pictures to send you. We had two splits this past week, celebrated my one year mark, and two of our investigators were baptized! It was a busy and productive week. I can see so much good happening here right now, and we've got such great investigators right now, so I'm excited to see them progress.
Our splits this week were back to back and were so fun. I first went with Sister Funaki who is from Tonga, she is absolutely hilarious and we had such a good day together, and such a good companionship study. For the next one I was with Sister Atienza who is tiny :) and on her second cycle right now. We had another really good day of work and ended it by getting some take out at Jollibee and eating it back at the apartment (picture). I love these sisters here in Alicia. We all get along so well. They all came over again on Thursday and we had lunch to celebrate my one year before we headed out to work. I cooked us some bilo bilo :)
Friday of course was valentines day. They do celebrate it here, but i don't think they do as much as we do back home. We had our coordination meeting that night with our Branch Mission Leader, and when we drove by we saw a ton of people at Jollibee that night. So that might be "the thing" here for Valentines day.

So yep, it has been a little over a year now. So much good has happened to my life within the past year. It has been challenging and hard at times, but the good things that happen out weigh it all and I'm so happy with all that I've learned. So weird to think that there is only one third of it left. I'm going to enjoy the rest of my time here in this little paradise, I know this time of my life is only here once, so I will keep enjoying everything about this experience here. I hope you have a great week. I love this work and I love each of you!
