We are working hard over here. Some days I am so dead tired from the heat, the walking, and the studying. I feel like I just got home from a hunting trip. Going to sleep at 10:30 is a really easy rule for me to follow ;)
But everything is just perfect over here, My kabahay and I just laugh and have a good time. They say this is the most united they have ever been with their apartment missionaries. Every night we have kabahay prayers, kasamahan prayers, then personal prayer. Lots of praying before bed!
A little culture for you guys, I think Philippines is a lot like Erin's mission. There are stray cats, dogs, and hogs (funny story about those things.. They scared us half to death, it was dark, in a grassy field, they started making this weird sound, I thought they were going to charge us.. ( imagine old yeller) I'll tell you the whole scary story at Christmas time or something ) tons of geckos, on and in everyone's houses, like Amber's mission, everyone has a little store in their house and sell all this candy, chips, and drinks. Lots of turkeys, crabs, fish. There are just a lot of animals here!
Half my area is rural ( rivers. lakes, jungle-ish, fields. and the other half is more cityish. I think that's lahat. Have a good week!
Ps. Amb, Che Che, Erin, when you look at the picture of the frog, just imagine me chasing it calling "Toooady.. Tooooady" like DW off of Authur ;)

|This is our First Toad. There are frogs and toads all over here, they're quick though. But we finally got one :D|
