Okay, so that was definitely the best part of this week and one of the best experiences of my mission. On Saturday we had our local celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Philippines! It's such an honor to be here at this time, serving a mission! And on Saturday they had this AMAZING presentation. There were traditional folk dances, hip-hop dances, ballroom dancing, and some fun drama presentations. It was SO much fun and was even better because we got to watch the youth that actually live in our ward. They did such a good job. Our stake did highlights from Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat for their drama performance. It was SOOOO good. It was the best out of all of them. When I saw all of the youth from my ward up on stage dancing I actually started crying a little bit. I just love the people in this ward so much and I am so proud of the youth. They are strong. It was just such a great experience.

We also had an exchange this week in our house so on Tuesday I got to be companions with Sister Vaipulu again, my MTC companion. I was way excited. I mean, we've lived in the same house for 3 transfers now, but it was just way fun getting to actually be companions with her. We had a lot of fun in her area. They have some great investigators and it was way fun to teach them. And I decided that we were going to extend baptism to all of them. And they all accepted! It was awesome. We had some great experiences and I learned a lot from her as well.

So this week was pretty good. I had to go to the doctor again for a check-up. I'm more anti-biotics and some more allergy pills, but I actually feel like I'm getting better now which is awesome. So hopefully I'm on the mend. Next week we get transfer announcements and I'm probably transferring. Hopefully President will put me in an area with cleaner air... Victorias is probably the worst because of the sugar cane factory. And it's milling season... yeah... So we'll see where I end up. Who knows?!

I love you all, hope you're all doing well, healthy, avoiding tornadoes (I hear there are a lot of those in America right now), and enjoying the springtime season! It's just hot here as usual! :)
