Love You

It has been a great week. In fact, Saturday was the best day of my life.
 It started out with a service project to one of our new investigators. There was a TON of garbage, a whole wardrobes worth of old dirty wet clothes and stuff all around their house that were attracting alot of mosquitos. So we removed all or at least most of that!
Then we helped a member set up her computers for her new internet cafe business at her house. That was fun. Mostly because we were with the AP's, DL's and ZL's. And they figured out how to take pictures of all our faces and set them as desktop backgrounds on all of her computers. It was so awesome!
Then she fed us lunch, we taught a couple lessons and went to the mission home to practice for the devotional. I sang a solo by the way for the District Christmas Devotional. It was fun. And sister fort and I did a duet "Away in a Manger" with her on the guitar and the rest of our zone joining in on the third verse. It was way pretty! We get to sing it for zone conference too! So I'll get a video later.
Oh wait, I almost forgot the best part! After practicing my solo, I walked into the kitchen and the most delicious smell filled my nose, I almost died and went to heaven. I kid you not, the night before (after finishing off some fresh MANGO salsa from Sister Carlos (which by the way is so good that it rivals Grandpa norms salsa)  I had mentioned how I missed mexican food the very most and what do I get the very next day? Angels cooking tacos in the kitchen and REAL CHEESE!! It was my first since I came to the philippines. I can't describe my brand of happiness to you. David Archuleta singing Joy to the World in the background had a lot to do with it I think. :)
President and Sister Carlos spoke about the gifts we can give Jesus for Christmas-- Our Faith, Gratitude, and Service to others. After the devotional we were getting ready to go home and President carlos comes walking out of his office with a wad of pisos. He says "who wants icecream" and we all go wild of course.
So he sent two elders to go get Icecream to end the night. It was just the icing on the cake!
Also, got to watch the First Presidency devotional  yesterday. Wasn't that wonderful? Of course I cried like a baby when they sang "What Shall We Give". We brought one of our investigators and It was a neat experience to be able to show her our Prophet and let her hear and feel of his sweet message and love. When the title came up "Thomas S. Monson, President, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" I felt this strong feeling in my heart that he really is called of God! And how incredible it really is that we have a living prophet. And here it was, her first time to hear his voice and see his face. So neat.
When you said you ate at Beijing Buffet, the first memory I had was of Hunter (after much painstaking pep talk to get him to be happy about eating there) walking in and saying loudly and with great excitement "You didn't tell me they had "THIS"!! Pointing at the fountain/decor in the front. Oh what a funny kid!! I miss him.
Well thats all for now. After friday night it finally feels like Christmas even though the mosquitos are still more prevalent than ever! The things I will miss most are watching "Its a wonderful Life" and singing with the fam. Oh yeah and the Willard Bay LIghts. I will probably miss those the most.
Love you so so much! All of you! Thanks for your prayers. I need them always!
Love, Sister Webre
p.s. What do you mean when you say "trimming the tree" I forgot to ask last week, I don't know what that means.
