We have successfully finished another week and I can hardly believe that it is May! It has been summer here since the beginning of April, and I am sorry to hear that it is so cold in Utah. Hopefully you are each keeping warm. If I could, I would send some heat to you! :-) It is so hot here. There is a thermometer on my alarm clock, and even at night, it has not gone below 90 degrees.
We have had a great week here in Valencia. The initial excitement of the transfer has settled and we are a bit stressed, but do not worry, it is the healthy kind of stress. We really want this area in Valencia to progress, and we are doing what we can to do so. Sister Schroeder is amazing. We have been really enjoying talking in English and comparing notes on our transition to the Philippines. She has an incredibly strong testimony, and has natural leadership abilities. She is also humble and grateful! She accepts my service and always says thank you. It really is the simple things that make me happy!
We spent Wednesday in our farthest area, Pagsa. It was my first time and our kind friend Carmen worked with us. And so many things happen each day, that I am struggling to remember highlights to share. Maybe I should have brought my journal today! Thank you for you patience! We have been focusing on praying in faith. Even now, we have seen many little miracles. We will continue forward in faith! Have a great week! Happy Mother's Day! I love you!
