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!

There’s a Wocket In My Pocket

HEY!

Well another week flew by and I feel like I just wrote you all yesterday! weird. The work is still progressing and I’m still working really hard.
  • We had 10┬áinvestigators in church this week which was awesome.
  • We didn’t have a ton of lessons this week like last week because we had zone conference. But we found 10 new investigators and we now have… maybe over 35 investigators. I don’t know, we have a lot.
  • We had a baptism on saturday. His name is Braima and he’s from…. Guine Bissau… I don’t know how to spell that. But he was the one that almost got baptized until he told us he doesn’t believe in God or Christ. So I started from the beginning and taught him about the creation and super basic christian beliefs then worked my way up the normal lessons. It was a LOT of work. I found him like 3 months ago in my first transfer. So that was cool!

Cows

I’m still in a tripla and our new addition Sister Horlacher cracks me up. We were waiting for a member to meet us to teach and she started teaching some cows that were chilling next to us. Seeing that the cows weren’t receiving the commandments really well I helped her out and told the cows they shouldn’t be so lazy. As we were standing there preaching to these cows we look over and there was a man watching us from his window cracking up. hahaha oops.
que mais… (what else…)

Finally

oh man! it finally happened. I was invited over to our bishops house for lunch and was served…. a giant. heaping. plate. of fish and beans. and I ate that sucker like a champion. Then had seconds. It was rough but I survived.
well thats all I have for you all this week. Enjoy some pictures of the ocean!
