Week Forty-eight--11 Months

Today marks 11 months on our mission.  Where has the time gone?  Well, we'll share this last week with you.

Monday we took the Fullmers and traveled back to Urdaneta to have FHE with the Urdaneta Mission couples.  We met two new couples who arrived there after we left.  It was wonderful to visit with our old friends and meet the new couples.  We needed that socialization so much!

On the way to Bangued--beautiful clouds, a field of rice, and a nipa hut.  The Philippines is a very beautiful place.

 One of the things we did last week was help get three apartments ready for Sisters.  This apartment is right near us, but the Zone Leaders and Elders did all the work.  Aren't they amazing!

Another day we checked out apartments in an area of the mission, then stopped by an apartment to assess their bed situation.  We'll be putting two more sisters in their apartment next transfer, so we got to bring them surprise cookies while we did our checking.

 More Zone Leaders having us check out a potential apartment for sisters.  This was a pretty nice place, so we'll have to see if it will work.
                     Same apartment with Elder Dinkel and missionaries by the landlady's house.

 The highlight of the week was when we stopped with the Zone Leaders and attended a baptism in Agoo, but I didn't get pictures of that.  So the next best highlight was when we had Sevilla Sisters to our house for dinner tonight.  They are amazing girls.  Three of them have only been out for 10 days (the American girls) and they were roommates at the MTC and now two are sharing an apartment and the third one is also assigned to their same ward.  They are so much fun!

They're doing well, Moms.  Thanks for sending us your daughters.  We love each one.  Thanks for looking at our blog, and have a great week.


  1. You really are an answer to prayer! I feel better just knowing you are looking out for these cute missionaries! Thank you for your service.

  2. Thanks for your comment. We have 3 grandchildren on missions right now ourselves, and know someone is looking after them for us. We're just trying to return the favor. Your daughters are amazing!

  3. Thank you so much for the pictures and for all you do for the missionaries. Sister Dial is right, you are an answer to many prayers.
