A Very Rainy Week

Good Afternoon,

We had a wonderful week.  It rained almost every day this week and we have been soaked to the bone.  We don't dry off very quickly here.  Must be rainy season and we love it because it makes it more of an adventure.

We discovered that our investigator, Angela, has two turtles.  We had fun playing with them when we went over for her birthday.

While contacting we found a Hindu lady who invited us to her house and fed us Aloo (potato roti stuff).  The best part was when we asked if anyone else would like to join us she called into the house and...out came her pet parrot.  She told it to sit on the chair and it did.  It sat there for the whole lesson.

One day we were trying to contact a referral and the lady wasn't home so we went to the neighbors' house.  We found a great family who are strong in their church.  We followed the promptings of the Holy Ghost and gave them each a copy of the Book of Mormon.  They were very excited and said they would read it.

The highlight of the week is Angela came to church as well as a lot of the less actives we have been working with.

Elections are today.  We will be happy when they are over because the traffic and loud music will decrease.  We haven't been able to wear red, yellow, or green because those are the colors of political parties.

Miracle Story:  We taught our investigator Angela (we love her a lot) the Word of Wisdom.  She said she loved coffee and couldn't give it up (this was last week).  When we went by her on Wednesday for her birthday she said that she decided she wanted to follow the Word of Wisdom and prayed that the temptation would be taken from her.  When she woke up that morning she didn't even want to touch the coffee.  We have checked up on her and she still hasn't had any.  Heavenly Father helped her stop.  That is just one of the miracles we have seen happen to her and her family.

I love this gospel and being a missionary.  It is the greatest thing in the world.

  1. That's so cool and crazy at the same time. Just remember you'll be ok as long as you the tools that you've learned, and Heavenly Father will do the rest.
