Hiya! :D Sorry my email was so short last week, I was SICK and in a bad mood haha. I'll try and let ya in on a little more this week :)
Feeling MUCH better than I was last week, I've still got the sniffles with a runny nose but no big deal, I'm used to it now. What I had last week was REALLY bad. I think it was some kind of Strep infection mixed with the flu. My body was just in SO much pain AND I couldn't sleep cuz I was thinking about our missionary work here haha. Things are definitely better now.
One problem hasn't gone away though... and it's driving me CRAZY! As a missionary one of your most precious and valued assets is the time you have to sleep. Staying up late and waking up early are 2 dislikes of a missionary. In the Philippines the sun begins to rise at 5:30. For the past week in a row Elder Powell has rised at 5AM!!!! And then I start thinking about our work and can't get back to sleep haha, it's terrible! No worries though, buhay pa ako (I'm still alive:o)
