Yesterday was such a busy day-the morning started with the District [kind of like a Stake but more spread out] Relief Society Christmas Party. The women here LOVE to party and can really put on quite the event. It is so funny though because the word promptly does not exist in their culture. When I ask someone when an event is supposed to start, they give me a time range of usually two hours. I was told this party will start around 8 but it was 10 when the actual opening exercises, the welcome, etc. occurred. I think part of the reason is the distance and transportation issues these people face-some come two hours to attend and bring their food for the day with them. The Relief Society party went until 2 and most then boarded Jeepney's to take them to Burgos for the Devotional.
