It's been a great week and Christmas was wonderful and amazing and special. We went around to the houses of some of our members who didn't have the means to have "Christmas" so we brought Christmas to them and sang Christmas songs and had lots of fun. I gave away a lot of pictures of Christ and everyone really loved them so thank you so much for sending those.
I told Sister Linao I wanted to have a Filipino Christmas this year. It was fun and I told her to do every single possible Filipino tradition we could. I just want to live like a Filipina for these last 2 months- eating as much dried fish as possible and everything else that comes with being a Filipina.
Last night we had a zone activity and we watched Rio 2 and Wreck it Ralph at the church in Dumaguete. Then we stayed the night at the Dumaguete sisters apartment with the Siquijor sisters there as well. Then this AM at 5 we walked to the boardwalk and watched the first sunrise of 2015 and it was a really special experience and something I'll always remember. Time is just flying by.
Bacong is still doing great and they are taking good care of me and loving me like I am actually part of their families. They are already planning my farewell party. I love them. I love it here.
Investigators are all still doing great and progressing- we committed Maya to baptism and every lesson we teach her I can just see light radiating from her and coming into her eyes. It's amazing.
I am out of time but I want you all to know how much I love you and how blessed I am to be here on my mission and blessed I am to have each of you in my life.
Have a great week :)
Love, Sister Harris
