Not everyone can say that they served in 2 missions on the same trip. But I can. And I can say that exactly half of my mission was Philippines Bacolod Mission, and that exactly half (will be) Philippines Iloilo Mission. I am staying in Roxas. But Sister Cortes is going to Negros. There are only 3 American Sisters on this Island: Sister Woodward (my MTC comp), me, and Sister Carr (who came one transfer before me, I met her in MTC) There are (as far as I know) 5 American Sisters on Negros... Sister Stadler, Sister Ball, Sister Whitehead (S. Johnson's Bata (trainee)) and the trainees of Sister Fair and Sister Grant. I don't know if any of them are transferring to this island, and I don't know how many new ones there are... let you all know next week, I guess! Also, I am losing my freedom of relaxation... I am becoming senior companion. I'm kind of excited, but a little nervous. But I trust that nothing is impossible with God, and that this is revelation... so, I can do it.
We had Panay Conference on Friday. It was cool. I learned a lot, and I am definitely going to go through my notes this week before transfers. I realized that I have kind of leveled out... and that's not good. We should always be progressing, so I am going to look at where I'm lacking, and try to change. So that I end up where I want to be in 9 months from now.We gave John-John a baptismal date! The 3 Besa kids will be baptized (hopefully by their dad) on July 24th. I'm really excited for them. :D And Raymart actually talked to us yesterday... he's just kind of a moody teenager (pre-teen?) Anyway, I would consider that progress too :)
Thank you all for your prayers and support. I love hearing about what you're all up to, so thanks a bunch for the letters :)
Love you all,Sister Adams
