Ahhh I have so much to email about! So much has happened in the last two weeks! First of all there was a typhoon- Typhoon Glenda. That is why we didn't get to email last week. There is still no power in Camalig...so we came to Legazpi to email. They have power is centro. Life without power is....just grand. The storm was CRAZY!! The wind was so loud. We were fine though. Our apartment flooded a little and we lost most the trees by our apartment, but we are safe! A lot of people lost their houses though or parts of their houses. The day after the storm we just did service all day and have been trying to find opportunities to serve since. When we came out of apartment the day after the storm I felt like I was in the day after tomorrow or something. Everything was just destroyed. It was super sad. The Philipinos are so amazing though- they just go right to cleaning everything up and repairing their houses. If you've got a walis, machete and bucket- you're set!Other than the storm- I am being transferred tomorrow. I am SO SAD! I absolutely love this area and am super attached to the people here. It has been rough. I really don't want to go. But no choice right? I will miss the people here a lot and look forward to the day when I can come back. Church yesterday was super sad. I cried when I bore my testimony. We spent most the day visiting my favorite families and sharing spiritual messages with them. A lot of goodbyes. A lot of tears from all the Nanays. We are having a ward family home evening though tonight and so I will get to see most the members there. Who knows where I will be transferred?
I love you all!
