This week I remembered those times Dad took me out of school to a movie. I remember my favorite movie was Star Wars III! I remember you told me we were going to the dentist and then we showed up to the movies! I loved it!
So something we have been doing this week is preparing people for baptism. We are hopefully going to have three at the end of this month. One person in specific is this boy named yohan. His mom is a member but his dad isn’t and his dad doesn’t get why his son needs to get baptized. We talked with his mom and she said she wanted yohan to go to his dad and tell him he wants to get baptized and she wanted yohan tell him the reason he wanted to get baptized. We showed up the next day and yohan said that his dad said yes and he could get baptized! We went out and told his mom and she didn’t even know! She was suuuuper happy, as were we.
We also contacted a bunch of people by telling them we teach English on Wednesdays and that it’s free! People see us and either speak French or English, well they try to speak French and English. They say they need to learn and we tell them that there is a class on Wednesday and sometimes they show up! haha great way to contact people! Glad you are getting snow there in the mountains. People here don’t even know what snow is!
So something funny this week was the service we did. We helped these ladies carry these 70 lb sand bags and mine had a hole in it! I got my shirt super dirty and sand all over myself. We work too far away from our house so we didn’t want to travel back and waste time washing off so we went the whole day all sandy and dirty! It was hilarious!
Weird food of the week was this weird chalk stuff. It looked tasted and felt like chalk and then when you crunch it up in your mouth it turns to clay... nasty stuff... On the other hand, there is a picture I sent of leche which is a fruit that you can peel the outer skin and eat the middle. Pretty good! Also pictures of the beauty of Madagascar and of my NEW SUIT!!! We finally got it and I really like what I picked out. There is also a picture of our Thanksgiving feast! And yes, the best is the heel kick picture!
I hope everyone has a great week!
