Also. I ate chicken feet, Like real chicken feet... but don't worry they pull off the outside skin and then you eat everything else. it was okay... I just couldn't get past that i was literally eating a chicken foot. i also ate goat. Which isn't that weird... but kind of. I also had a close call with balut. I almost ate it, but "it was too old" Oh well....too bad.... next time I guess.
When I skyped this week... my aunt asked me a question about the differences between my expectations and realities of missionary work and I have been thinking about that a lot this week. I thought oh yeah I will have baptisms, the reality is... people's decisions. you can't force anything and it is taking people time. I am definitely learning patience. I thought that missionary work would become easier, but the reality is I am becoming stronger. I thought that I would find people who would want to be baptized right away, but it takes time for people to change. i thought when i spoke tagalog that there would be times where I was just fluent, but haha.... it takes hard work! :) of course. basicallyy, I am learning a lot. :) I'm grateful for all the ways I'm growing.
Love you all!
