Still Working Hard

Good Afternoon,

This week a lot of people decided they wanted to feed us.  There was one day we got fed four times.  We took most of it to go because we have been very busy these past few weeks.  I had peilou, bhaggie and sada roti, sugar roti, fried rice, stewed chicken, curried pumpkin, vermicelli, and bake.  All wonderful as usual.  I love the food here.  Random food fact:  they literally eat the whole chicken here- to the bone marrow.  I stopped trying to figure out what part of the chicken I was eating a long time ago.  Heart, neck, feet, back... who knows.  It all tastes the same when it is curried :)

We had tradeoffs this week so I was with Sister Edmonds.  We went with a member to meet some of his friends and we ran into a geriatric home where we met a 102 year old man.  The spirit was very strong there and we prayed with all of them.  We are going back tomorrow to sing hymns to them.

The stake put on the second half of the Savior of the World play.  It was very good.  They performed it at the University of the West Indies in one of the auditoriums.  The costumes were great and the props were creative.  They did a wonderful job inviting the spirit.  the songs were my favorite part because they had a Caribbean twist because of the style of their singing here.  The Gerard family all came.

That leads us to the miracle of the week:  When we were on tradeoffs, Sister Edmonds and I taught the Gerard family about the importance of the Atoning sacrifice of the Savior.  They all shared their testimonies and the spirit was very strong.  They have very strong testimonies of the restoration as well.  We taught them about the word of wisdom and they threw out their coffee.  They readily accepted it.  they are doing great.

Thanks for everything.  As always I love you all and am grateful for your prayers.

Funny story about eggs:  You can only get brown eggs in Trinidad.  When you try to dye them they still come out brown.
