Last Wednesday, we had our Zone Conference. Sister Sikotilani gave her pa-uwi (missionaries who are returning home) testimony and it was so weird... I was just companions with her when she was at the same point I am at now.... Ahhh!!!!! It was super fun to see so many people I love at the conference!! With the exception of Sister Alailima, I was able to see/visit with all of my old companions who are still in the field. As we were listening to the workshops, it just hit me, again, how much I've loved my mission. I remember coming here I feeling like such a foreigner (which I am) and now I just feel right at home with everything. I love President and Sister Revillo!! I think my favorite thing about them is just that they are so them.... not once have they ever pretended to be anyone different. They both have unique skills and personalities that our mission really needs and I can feel their love for every one of us. Oh... as a side note, the Johnsons were able to drive us everywhere that day that we went to all of the hospitals. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them... pretty sure they are some of my most favorite people ever! And not just because they spoiled us rotten like we were their grandchildren.... :) They made me laugh so hard my abs were hurting real bad at the end of the day.
The work continues to blossom here and I'm dreading transfers next week because I'll probably have to leave. :( I don't want to!!! I'm in love with Morong and the people here.... It's just been such a blessing to watch the work grow and thrive here as well as to be a part of it all happening. We have several investigators who are well on their way to hitting their bap. dates and so many less-actives are coming back into activity.... sighing.... I'm really praying a miracle happens and I stay here.
Hope you are all doing well and know how much I love you!! Ingat po kayo lagi!!
Love, Sister Dickison
