Shepards pie and Strawberry Cheese Cake!

Hey everyone! Today we find out we we are transferred, and I am not transferred!!! hahah it was almost obvious because I have only been in this area for 6 weeks. Things are going all right, its about the same as when we arrived hahaha so its kind of a bummer but I am not losing hope in this area or in this work, and I plan on doing my very best these last 6 weeks of my mission, no matter how hard it gets. As long as the Lord knows I am trying to do my best, I will feel good about what we have done here no matter what! 

Something epic happened to us this last week which totally made up for the trials we have recently been dealing with, you may think its some awesome spiritual experience, but its not... its pretty close tho, and it has to deal with the title of this letter! 

Believe it or not Ladies and Gentlemen I had something I never thought I could get in the Philippines! Strawberry Cheese Cake!!!! the kind my mother only makes once a year! It was INSANE!! then I had Shepards Pie for the first time in my life which just blew me away, and also baked maccaroni and brownies! it was amazing and greatly appreciated. There is Member in our branch who is American, and he works for a month and is off for a month, so every time he says he is home they only cook american food, and his wife is really good at cooking american food, and she is Filipino by the way. hahaha so I kind of scored on that part, he invites us over for dinner all the time so he can continue to watch me freak out when I eat the food, he thinks its crazy how I forgotten how good American food tastes, and is suprised at my reactions when I eat it.  

That about it, nothing else exciting happen last week, hopefully this next week will change something around. Please pray for us and this area because we are really struggling, and we could use all the help we can get! Thanks everyone for your love and support, and I can't believe I will see you again in almost 6 weeks!
