Magandang Gabi!

Magandang Gabi!
That's filipino for good night but directly translated it means "beautiful night". cool huh?
Well I was really spoiled this week! I got 3 packages and another dinner at the mission home. It was one of the assistants birthday so we got cake and icecream and the leftovers of presidents dinner which just so happened to be pork chops and mashed potatoes with presidents special gravy. did I mention both president and sister carlos are legit chefs? It was sweet!
We went to Save More today. It is like a real mall!! It's in a different area about a 25 minute drive from Cauayan when Elder mulliner drives 95 the whole way. President gave us the OK to go check it out.  I'm not a mall lover, but when you haven't been in a nice place for a long while stuff like that is like a world wonder. It had a huge grocery place and i bought REAL cheese! It was kindof expensive but I still haven't spent most of my christmas money so I splurged.
I'm gonna make grilled cheese sandwiches this week booyah!
They also had a cool bookstore and I found a section with a ton of childrens classics: The Wizard of Oz, The Jungle Book, and also The Prince and |The Pauper, Le MIserables, The Count of Monte Cristo, there were a ton! I'm not sure if they were the exact original text, but they had really awesome illustrations and they were only two dollars a piece. I wanted to buy some but there were so many I just couldn't decide and we were in a time crunch  so I didn't get any.
The next time I go back I'm gonna get some though.
We got some referrals this week that seem pretty promising so far and also found a couple I have a good feeling about. I'll tell you more about them next week.
Last night when we came home there was a little tiny frog just sitting on our floor in the kitchen. We named him harold. |We don't know how he got in to our house but he was so tiny and cute! I wanted to keep him but ironically enough we had just read the day before the part in the white handbook that says no pets allowed. They say ignorance is bliss, but in this case we couldn't play that card. Sadness.
We let the little guy go.
Overall it was a generally a very happy week. I'm always happy, but this week was just extra happy. It might have something to do with the fact that my companion knows how to pronounce my last name. Not sure.  Its probably because a lot of our investigators have actually been reading the Book of Mormon! YEAH! They gotta read it, its the only way they will be converted!
I went on splits with Sister Fort who is from Texas and is 6 weeks behind me in the mission. that's right, BEHIND. So I was just a little bit concerned about how we were going to be able to teach and get along on our own, but it worked out just fine and we actually had a lot of fun. It was good for both of us to get to stretch oursleves with no one to fall back on. We're going to be splitting a lot because her comp and mine are going to different areas of the mission every thursday to do training with the sister missionaries. Fun times! A lot of Journal moments, I'm sure!
Take care, love ya
Love Sister Weever (Webre)
