Two Weeks Down

This week has been so crazy.

Satan is REAL! Oh my goodness, the opposition I have felt this week has been incredible. Don't worry Mom, I'm not coming home! Sunday's and MOnday's always make it all better. Plus we just barely had sweet teaching appointment and our investigator felt the spirit. We all bore testimony that God is in the details of our lives and that he cares about EVERYTHING. She committed to pray tonight and pour out her heart. Woot! :)

So it's kinda hard to teach fake investigators but one thing that they always tell us is that the investigator may be "fake" but the spirit is NEVER fake. SO true, I can testify of that. Teaching is really hard. I have been struggling with that the most. I really thought the hardest part would be the language or the absence of all the things from my former life but it is not any of those things. It is teaching. I stink. I can't tell someone about the things I have known my whole life without making a complete idiot out of myself. I repeat stuff, I make things too complicated, I bring up something they don't know about and then I feel like I'm trying to explain one thing after another and I totally overload. I had no idea it would be so hard!

BUT, I think we learned something today in this TE that will help us a lot.

And yesterday I was reading Nephi's psalm and the feelings of my heart were very close to those scriptures. He says he will give place no more for the enemy of his soul and I decided I have to do the same. I have just been letting Satan get into my head and discourage me and tell me that I can't do it. Well I'm not going to let him do that anymore. Goodbye Satan!

The longest word I have learned so far is pinakamakapangyarihan. It means "most powerful". It's pretty sweet. You should try to use it whenever possible. Also some more fun words that we get to say ALOT : Hindi--"no", Mabuti-- "good", o-o (pronounced oh-oh) --"yes". One of my favorites is hindi mabuti.

I discovered "the wrap" this week in the cafeteria. It is now one of my favorite things to eat. My favorite is the spinach wrap with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, sprouts, spiniach, green onions, cranberries and honey dijon dressing. Oh, and cheese. It is most masarap. (delicious) Also this Thai Curry soup I found is the bomb!

I have gotten at least one letter almost every day and three packages so far so keep it up everyone! ONe sad story--I got einstien bagels from Tawnya's mom. (I saw tawnya by the way and she is so cute.) But I had just eaten lunch so I decided to save them for that night when our district prays together before we go to our residence halls and share them with everyone. But then at dinner I discovered it was fast sunday the next day and so my plan was foiled. So I just saved them and I couldn't refrigerate the cream cheese and by the time I got to try my first einstien bagle it was two days old. Oh well. Just a bagel right?

Aunt Betty also sent me about two million cookies that were very delicious and I was able to share with many. Thanks Aunt Betty!!!

My comps are from Sandy and Murray and we all have seven in our families. Weird huh! We all leave on August 23.

Love Sister WEBRE
