This week was a stressful but good week. Tomorrow is leadership conference so I’m currently in Fogo waiting to go to Praia. I feel like I say that every other week.
Oh yeah, a couple days ago we met some women who have a little restaurant and taught them. They were all really sweet and said they would go to church with us. Sunday morning as we were walking to church we found them walking to church with their little Restoration pamphlets in hand. They had gone into work early and prepared the food so they could go to church. So cute!
So that’s about it for this week. Brava is doing great and I, as always, love missionary life.
Love you all!
Mom note: Here are some pictures Lindsay sent us of Brava
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.
Then 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!
