September 13, 2010

Hey everyone!

Things are going great still! Nothing too exciting happened this week. I actually got a liiiiiiiitle sick (just a little) so saturday and sunday we took it a little easy. Our baptisms all actually got put off till this saturday so we're hoping that they go through this time. I did a split with Elder Mayinguila this week (hes from congo and in my district, hes only been out for about five months) and that was fun. I always like meeting other peoples investigators and seeing other areas.

This week we also had a meeting with all the auxuillary leaders about missionary work in the ward. In theory we are supposed to recieve five contacts from each auxillary each month but that hasn't happened since i've been here so we finally got them all together to talk about it. We got the plan all organized and now i think we should recieve even more contacts than before.

The next transfer would be the 22nd but i try not to think about it. I'm actually hoping that i'll stay here so we'll see.

My favorite investigators of the week are Monsieur and Madame Nanan. They are a pretty well off couple that live together with their 8 month old baby. We teach them and the wife was coming to church but now we have finally got the husband to come to church too. They are not legally married so yesterday our bishop (like a champion) pulled them aside after church and took the time to talk to them for a long time about marriage. We'll gonna try and get them married next month which would be great.

Haha the fish tasted fine [see picture of fish head below]. We eat stuff like that all the time so i didnt even think to take a picture of it until Elder Boty suggested it. The big think here in CDI is fish so they have alllll kinds. My favorite is probably smoked tuna. Its pretty good.

Ok thats all for this week! I love you all! Good luck with weight lifting! Keep up the good work!
