Hey y'all. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes, it was a great day! Birthdays on the mission remind you of all the things you are grateful for. They are simple and happy. I can't believe I am 21 years old. That just sounds old to me. I'm eager to see what the Lord has in store for my 21st year of life. I had my share of birthday dinners this week. Just on Sunday I had three! I celebrated Filipino style by wearing red and eating noodles.
On Saturday I will be emergency transferred to Santa Monica, Novaliches to be with a brand new sister who needs some help. Instead of saying goodbye to Sister Clark and being with her until she goes home, I will live out of my suitcase for ten days, then once these ten days are finished, on April 8 I will move again to a new area for a "special assignment". So the next couple days will be a whirlwind of packing and goodbyes. I'm sad to leave Meycauayan. I have never felt so close to a ward before. They have truly become my family. I will definitely leave a part of my heart behind when I leave.
So next week I will be emailing from my temporary new area with my new companion. I'll introduce her more to you then. Wish me luck!
