This city girl is finally going to the city! I got the transfer call Monday that I'm going to be transferring to Labangon tomorrow. It's right in the heart of Cebu City. I will be follow up training a Filipina sister named Sister De Jesus. I don't know much about my area or my companion, but I have peace that this is exactly where the Lord needs me.
Sister Domingo was quite surprised when she got the transfer call that she's going to be training here in Toledo! But I know she's going to be so great. Sister Dustin is coming with me to Central Zone, she'll be in the area next to mine so I'm excited I'll still get to see her.
- Hinulawan Festival- we were able to watch the parade from our balcony last Thursday and it was super fun to see how much effort they put into their floats and costumes! There was also a huge fireworks show late Thursday night. I remember watching a youtube clip before my mission about a "30 second firework show" because they all accidentally went off at once. Well, the show lasted about 30 minutes, not 30 seconds, but it was like 10 or so fireworks were lit off at once. It was crazy!
- Tracting and Dogs- We were tracting last Friday and decided to go down a street that we have never been down before. We found a cute little village of houses and got Sister Domingo some return appointments there with her new companion. However as we were going to leave we got chased by a dog. First time this has happened on my mission. Don't worry, my companion grabbed my shoulder and bolted for a house with the door open. She said we needed to "grab shelter". #lifeofamissionary
- Cebu Adventure- Sister Dustin and I had to go to Cebu on Saturday to sign some papers at the mission office, and we made it a priority to stop at my FAVORITE food joint ever in the Philippines, Chow King. There is no Chow King in Toledo, or any of my other areas for that matter, so it is a treat every time I get it. I am addicted to their Halo Halo. It was a fun quick trip.
Have a great week and remember nga nahigugma ko ninyo! Ingat palagi.
Love, Sister Harris
