King Burger!!

Lindsay Mission Llamas March 2014

Llamas! Or some kind of furry animal…

Oh man this week was a lot of fun!

SISTER WEBB CAME TO BRAVA FOR THE WHOLE WEEK! The week went by so fast. We did divisions all week. I did divisions in the other sisters area on Brava and we had to literally hike up a mountain above the clouds to get to the village. It was SO beautiful up there.
Once again I’m currently in Praia. I think I spend more time on a boat than in my own area. I’m here for another leadership conference which is always intense because I feel so under qualified sitting there with all the zone leaders and APs.
Today was a blast. We traveled all morning to get to Praia but once we got here we went to King Burger (no not Burger King, King Burger) and ate some sketchy cabo verdean burgers.
Lindsay Mission Drums March 2014Then we went to Sukupira which is a giant african market. We were checking out some sweet drums when a guy walked up to us and started teaching us african beats. Then we started a 3 man drum line and all these kids came out of no where and started dancing to our music. So fun! The guy got so into it he spit his cigarette out. WIN FOR THE WORD OF WISDOM.
Oh yeah and this morning on the plane I started conversation with the guy next to me who was from Spain. After talking a bit I asked him if he had a religion to which he responded “I don’t believe in God, I believe in science.” I then asked him if he had any questions about life and he said he had a ton. I invited him to ask them and we had a long conversation from topics like God having a physical body to modern day prophets. It was really cool!. He didn’t want missionaries to pass by or anything but funny enough he said he agreed with everything we believed and seemed pretty intrigued with everything.
Preaching the gospel is so awesome. I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Zone Conference

Hey everyone!
We had a great week that started with Zone Conference which is always awesome. Everyone always nervously anticipates the scripture game. Basically The AP´s call on you and say something like 4th lesson 8th point and you have to say a scripture for that point. I think theres like 45 of them. Plus the articles of faith… I dont know theres a lot. Memorizing that many scriptures in a different language is harder than you would think… anyway I survived.
Ivan quote of the week”

me “Ivanildo you have been saying youll get baptized for 3 weeks now”
him “Thats a long time”
me “and youre still not baptized”
him “Thank goodness I havent died”
It took everything I had not to laugh.
Teaching
We are now preparing Fica, who I have been teaching since I was with Sister Willey.

She said she wants to get baptized now. YEAHHHH MIRACLES. We’re also preparing Carlita, who we just started teaching last week.
I currently have cornrows… Im almost African. This is me and my friend Dilma who did my hair.
