1) “Proselyting in Atlantis:” There has been so much rain! The city has flooded practically every day. We were literally walking with aqua up to our shins! After a while, there’s no point in trying to use our umbrella. But I love rain. And I’ll take it over burning sun any day! I dropped our cell phone, and we spent about five minutes chasing it down the street as it was washed away in the gutter! J But I was successful in retrieving it.
2) “The black lake:” Whooo-ee this week has been stressful!! Like a 47 on a scale of one to five. My companion doesn’t know the people or the area, so I’ve had to be the leader, and practically do/plan everything. I don’t really feel like I know what I’m doing yet. I’m...(wait for it...>) in the dark! Ha! Get it?! Black lake, in the dark, hahaha. Anyway, I am learning a lot through this stressful process, so it’s been good.
3) “Boiling water purifies:” Elder Lago speaks a little bit of every language and he pretends to shoot/blowup things as we walk. Bao, Nick, Jared, and Clinton, let me tell you: Don’t try this at home. In a car, fine. But walking? Really awkward. This is a hard time, and the transition is hard, so I don’t feel like I’m doing my personal best, but then I remind myself: I’m serving a mission. I love God. And He loves me. So I trust it’ll get better. Keep praying for us.
4) “A constant stream of letters:” Thank you Nick W, Nadine K, Sara B, the Kirkwood Family, and Sister D, Sister W, Sister R, and Sister C! J Y'all are great.
