Haha I CAN NOT BELIEVE I am flippin 20 years old. That sounds far too mature and far too... grown up. Maybe I havent quite sunk in to that frame yet. I will with time.
Well things with Elder Cañete are slowly improving.... President got way bold with him on the phone the other day. I wont repeat exactly what President told him, but lets just say that my companion woke up a bit.
HOWEVER. He is sick as a dog right now. His fever fluctuates from 101 to 103.8 every few hours. Please pray for him to feel better so we can get back out to work. I am down right sick of just sitting here in the apartment. I want to get out and work so bad. I guess I just have to be patient.
I am learning to love him. I found the best way to win his heart was to ask him to teach me their native language Warey-Warey. The Lord has blessed me with the gift of tongues for much more than just communicating with investigators. I am learning it about 5 times faster than I learned Tagalog.
The Ward is doing pretty good. Finally got some other people to accept callings so then the responsibility is a little more spread out. I am absoluteness ecstatic about the new ward mission leader. With his help we are going to change this place.
Anyway, thank you for the update on packages. I havent gotten it yet but it is probably in the mission home. I may get it in a few hours because the office Elders are driving up to Dagupan to eat pizza and go bowling with me to celebrate my birthday:).
I am happy. It feels so great to be able to say that. I am just happy. I am serving with my heart, might, mind, and strength and it feels amazing. Please keep on being happy too. I will see you before you know it:)
