Testimony of Fasting and Prayer

Philippine Foliage :)
Dear family,

This past week was a huge testimony building week. So I lost something on Tuesday and I had prayed and retraced my steps and asking everyone we went to and visited... They all said that they hadn't seen it.... I was running out of places to look and I was loosing faith and hope... and just as I was about to give up, Sunday came around and I fasted for help in finding it..... We went to a family we went to 3 times since Tuesday and she said, " Der... sa imo ni" (is this it) and with a huge smile on my face I said, "YES!" After that experience I have such a strong testimony of FASTING and also of Prayers. I know God answers our prayers but it always happens in his time. He waits till the lowest point sometimes to see if we will stay true! I am so thankful of that sister helping Heavenly Father answer my prayer.

I know God watches out for us but we need to keep the commandments before he helps us:) Me and Elder Barrera are doing really well.. we had a break from baptisms this week but the next 3 weeks of march we have baptisms:)

The Baptism of Nanay Vicky did go through:)!! ( If you remember she was the miracle story!!!) I love this area of Masville because the whole branch is pretty much RMs (returned missionaries) so we have a lot of member help:) and in return we have a lot of baptisms<3
I love all the water here!

We have been getting rain but it is still extremely hot... to give you an idea of how hot at 7pm here when the sun is down it is the hottest point of the day in California... so our hottest point here is 3X that amount... HAHAHAH. What a joy:)

 I am thinking of sending a package home so that I don't have too much stuff and I have room for all of my things:) BUT I don't know how much it costs :(

SO how is the ward...I bet when I get back it will feel like just another area transfer because there are a ton of families that left or moved in right??!

That's it as of now... I really need to learn to write the questions I have for you down..... Because when we go to lunch I will remember the questions I forgot to ask.. hahah

I love you all and hope everything is going well.
