As Elder Calhoon says on the best two years. ²Its kinda cloudy, we been havin lots of rain². Its been raining every day here, which means the power is never on. Por isso, I didnt sent a long email last week. The power is really schetchy, but luckily our fridge is similar to the fridge of most elders, and we dont have too much in there that can go bad when the power goes out. Its a little inconvient, but what can ya do.
I felt a little bit like Curt Schillingmorning. Curt Schilling threw game 6 of the 2004 ALCS agains the Yankees with a broken ankle. And it was bleeding the whole game and he spoke about the blood running down to the bottom of his toes. Im in no way comparing myself to Curt Schilling, but my shoe has a pretty big gap, and because of the rain if filled with water quickly and my toes were pretty wet for a while. Im getting the shoes fixed this week, so there shouldnt be anymore problems. Just a little funny comparison I made in my head and thought Id share it.
We have been working really hard with Marcaleno and Titeta for their marriage and baptism to be this week. Everything worked out, but they can only do marriages on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And appearantly there is only one person on this whole Island that can do a marriage service, and he will be in Praia until next week. We have transfers this week, so I have hoping that I get to stay to see the marriage. #Familia
I feel like the dog deserved a paragraph of its own. The same reverent dog joined us for church this week. And stayed for all three meetings with is better than a lot of our members. I also played the piano in church, not saying I played well, but I played.
Listened to Remember Lots Wife this week. Ive heard it a million times, but leaned some new stuff this time. Learning from the past but not living in it. A lot of missionaries, especially the Americans always talk about America and how great it is. Things like carpet, hot showers, paved roads, and grocery stores. I would be lying if I said Im not guilty of doing the same things. But the past is to learned from and not lived in. Not saying Im gonna teach these guys how to build a grocery store, but two years is such a short time away from all that stuff, and we signed on to give it all up for two years. Concercrate yourself, and see what the Lord can make with you.
Hope you guys all have a great week. Thanks for the letter, and please continue to send pics, its my favorite part of P Day!
