I'm seriously running out of titles and things to write in these
weekly emails! All the weeks kind of blend together into one big
experience that gets harder and harder to describe.
Well, this week, we FINALLY found people who are willing to give a
ride to and come to lessons for the big family of seven that we teach
(A. and her family), and then they canceled. Noooooo. But there's
always next week!
A few weeks ago, we contacted a woman named M. She was super nice
and asked us to come back, but she's almost never home. Finally this
week, we passed by and she was there! She almost said that she was too
busy, but then her husband that we hadn't met before yelled out the
door inviting us to come in for a bowl of coffee (they drink hot
drinks from bowls, not mugs here) and so we confirmed that they had
Milo (it's like hot chocolate) and went ahead! They then spent the
next hour telling us about things they don't like about their church,
followed with, 'what do you believe about that', and we just kept
sharing scriptures about what we believe about the given topic. It was
a pretty cool experience, and then they invited us back to share about
the Restoration, so we'll be doing that this week!
In this country, there are only two fast food places, MacDonald's and
a place called Quick. And EVERYONE is obsessed with MacD. The Elders
especially. And they really think it's funny to ask my companion to
get them MacD every time we see them. So at tomorrow's Zone Training
Meeting, we're launching a challenge, and the winner at the end of
next transfer will have MacD, bought by us. We'll see how it goes,
hopefully it motivates and gets the Elders to stop asking us to buy it
Well, that's it for this week. I love you all!
