Another One Bites The Dust‏

Kamusta kayo lahat? This week's letter is going to be pretty short. To be honest, it was one of those weeks where I had to buy a whole tub of cookie dough ice cream. And then the next day we lost our curiente and it melted. But I ate it anyway. Ice cream is precious. And sobrang mahal. We tracted a lot because we got punted more this week than ever before. I wish punted was a key indicator sometimes so when I report that we only taught 10 lessons all week I could also say, "But don't worry Elder, we got punted 37 times!" The good thing is, there was a surplus of adorable little children! Heavenly Father is there.

Evangeline came to church this week again and brought her daughter! We found out that she doesn't know how to read. But Erica, her 11 year old daughter, reads The Book of Mormon to her every night. How awesome is that?! She really wants to be baptized and she has a Baptismal Goal Date, but we aren't sure if she's married yet. That's a big problem in the Philippines. There's no divorce so if you've been married before and it doesn't work out, you just move in with another person. It makes the work a little challenging but the Lord always provides a way. 

I know this email is lame. Sorry. Thank you for all of your love and support and prayers! I had quite a few little emails today that I very much appreciated. They were much needed. Thank you. Have a wonderful week! 

XOXO, Sister Brown

The sign says it isn't allowed to throw trash here or you will be fined...I don't think it is working! 

Another day of tracting...
