Week 9: Time flies

Time flies! It seems like it was only yesterday when I last emailed and here I am again. Yay! I am 3 weeks away from completing the training for new missionaries. Another batch of missionaries came last week from the MTC. So I guess we are not greenies anymore? :)
This week my training focused on commitments. Helping people make and keep commitments is an essential part of missionary work. As always Sister Esguerra is the best in teaching me the ropes how to. Brother J stopped going to church for  5 years already and we have visited her twice. He is funny because he would act like he doesnt want to be visited or pray with us but when he prays it was really hearfelt. Also, he came to church! Brother B also came to church again after many visits. Truly when we keep our commitments as missionaries, it would one way or another reflect to the commitments that are kept by the people we teach as well.
Funny story of the week, Sister Juliet is the best ever! She is the wife of our 2nd counselor and they always love the missionaries. Well, she gave us gifts. Bras! It was funny but they were pretty! She acts like our mother here and obviously we love her too.
President Torres announced in our zone conference that we will have christmas conference. All 170+ missionaries! How cool is that? We are now brainstorming what to present. We might be doing the cup song :) Haley and Eli, help!
Im sorry I don't have many photos to send this week but I'll make up on my next email. Have a great week everyone!
