Hey y'all, what a week it's been. Here's a run down of one of the busiest, longest weeks of my life:

Tuesday: Our mission president attended our district meeting and pulled my companion and I aside. He told us that this next transfer we would make room in our (tiny) home for two new sisters. We will spend the next transfer training them in the area and then I will be pulled out and relocated to my final area. It was a hard pill to swallow. I have grown to love this area and it will be tough to hand it over in April. But I am so thankful I get these next six weeks to work harder than I ever have in Meycauayan and leave behind my love. 

WednesdayWe had a CSP (community service project) and helped one of our members clean up their front yard. I got to feed all the chickens and then give the 11 baby ducks a bath. We had so much fun chasing them around the yard and then giving the poor, ugly things a much needed bath. Afterwards my companion and I came home and made homemade Najavo tacos. It was awesome. 

ThursdayWe had another early morning CSP this day. As a zone we repainted an entire outdoor gymnasium. It took about five hours and afterwards we were all covered in green paint. It was a lot of work, but we had fun. That afternoon we were proselyting and saw two brand new baby goats. Sister Clark said, "Bet you won't pick one up." Well I couldn't let that be true, so of course I had to pick it up. They were so sweet, like little puppies. It absolutely made my whole day. 

FridayOn Friday morning we had a house full of people. The apartments elders came over and set up new beds, desks, etc. for the incoming sisters. Our house is going to be pretty cozy for the next couple weeks. They also had to fix our ceiling because last week, at about 3AM, a cat stepped on our skylight and fell through the ceiling. Totally scared us to death. This day our mission president came and toured our area and decided that for the next six weeks Sister Clark and I will only be tracting. It's going to be a huge challenge. 

SaturdayI spent this day on exchanges with Sister Funaki (Sydney, AUS) in Novaliches. We had a great day together. At one point in our day, I was surrounded by, no lie, 30+ children. Pulling my bag, dress, and hair, asking me about a billion questions. They were darling. I was so happy I was beside myself. I love the children here. 

That's a brief run down. I also picked up a baby chick and the mama hen was so angry she flew up my skirt. Three times. And I got to attend three special sacraments on Sunday afternoon. It was a rollercoaster of a week. I love being a missionary. I'm going to enjoy every minute I have left.

Have a great week!
Sister Cork
