District Conf, ELder Perez and Goodbyes

Last week in the mission. It seems like it was only yesterday when I first came in the mission. Yes, I will use that phrase too because it's so true. Sister Guevarra is the sweetest companion. She planned well to give me such a wonderful surprise home evening in one of the members house. She sang my favorite EFY song too "What Heaven Sees In You" What made it very special is Shalum. I think during these I was in a little denial about going home haha because it will make me sob. Shalum made me cry though. It's one of those special moments when an investigator prays about you and hear it right from them. It was amazing. (and by the way I just knew last week that she was baptized already)
4 zones - 4 district conferences. I don't know if that happened to all missionaries but it happened it me. And guess what, my last Sunday in the mission is conference. Elder Perez was there. What a beautiful Sunday. We joined the choir. Music invites the spirit and that made me sit in the pulpit which was nice because then I can see everyone. You know, just look around and see everyone's faces. It was bittersweet because you don't really know when you will see them again. 
Oh, and the funny part. President Torres decided to drive us down to Butuan. Yay! So since we will go with him, we had lunch together. With Elder Perez of the area seventy. With a special witness of the Lord in one table and talking does not happen very often in the mission. Plus plus plus... since Davao airport is nearer than Butuan we went to Davao too. haha Again in a car with a special witness. Okay, enough said. But really I should improve on my start-a-conversation skill. :D 

Last week was intense. The people are loving. Packing was easy. Saying goodbye was hard.
