Prayers For President and Sister Lopez

Hello everyone! So lots happened this week. The pope came to the Philippines, my ward mission leader almost died, I found out coconuts are actually green and my mission president went home. Yeah, please keep President Lopez and Sister Lopez in your prayers. They are very sick. They had to go to the US to get medical treatment and they will most likely not be returning to finish. This really has kinda just put a damper on the whole mission. He is such a faithful servant of the Lord and such a inspiration for me. And then our ward mission leader, okay so we're walk to our next appointment and its down this big, steep hill that turns into a narrow bridge (only one care can drive on it at a time) so when we got to the bottom of this hill and to the bridge me and Sister Arviola jumped right up on the sidewalk while our ward mission leader is walking in the narrow road, and a huge truck comes flying down the hill. Brother Roy jumped up on the sidewalk literally right before the truck was going to hit him (I legit thought he was going to get hit) me and Sister Arviola were freaking out and all he says is "Heavenly Father loves me. It felt like I was pulled out of the road by an angel" Which I can testify to, he's pretty old and he moved so fast to get out of the way. Heavenly Father really does watch over us!! And yeah the pope was like a big deal. Everyone was so excited, like even our members!
MmmmMM Coconuts
These people are so funny! Haha okay so now a funny story. So there are these trees here and they look just like coconuts trees but I didn't think it was because the fruit in them in green so one day I asked "What are these trees that look like coconut trees but the fruit is green?" and they bust up laughing "Sister, those are coconuts" MIND BLOWN!! And they're delicious. Like I hate coconut too. The Philippines is the bomb. I'm so thankful to be a missionary here. I had the opportunity to attend the special sacrament in the Elders area. They are such faithful members there! They truly understand the importance and sacredness of the sacrament. It is such a wonderful gift! Oh I just love being a missionary! Stay Fresh!!
