This week was an adventure!!
A lot of our appointments fell through this week so we had the opportunity to meet some new people. That was lots of fun. I remember before my mission how the idea of talking to a complete stranger scared me! Now, I do it every single day and absolutely love it! Oh, the things missions do to you.
We were having a lesson on Sunday with a lady named Perlisa (she goes by Lisa as well). Nothing out of the normal was happening, we were just talking about the plan of salvation, Rasta music was going on in the background, and a guy was gutting an octopus next to me. It took me until the end of the lesson to realize how weird the situation was. To me it was normal, but to anyone back home that would look bizarre. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I got a picture with the octopus guy (forgot his name....woops.). You're welcome:)
Sunday after church, as we do every week, we went over to Sister Brathwaits house for lunch. We had the usual: Macaroni pie (which I now know how to make and will whip up for everyone back home when I return. You will be happy I learned how to make it), Cole slaw(I never knew how simple that was to make...still don't like it that much though), Broccoli and various vegetables which you don't have in the states( at least as far as I know), rice and beans, and a meat( 'twas fish. Merla fish if I recall correctly). Yummy yummy!! The ice cream of the week after that was Chocolate and the other one was fruit salad. They sure do have some weird Ice cream flavors here. I decided to stick with the chocolate. One spoonful of the fruit salad one was enough for me.
Funny story time: SO, there is this Less-active lady named Sister Ramsey that we visit. She is wheel-chair bound which is the reason she is less-active, or so I could hope. Anywho, we visit her EVERY SINGLE THURSDAY. Every one. Havent missed one yet. As far as we knew, she was single, her daughter had passed away, she lived alone, and she had a care giver lady come in a couple times a week and help her out with stuff. So, we come as usual Thursday to see her and there is a Man in her house as well. We assumed it was a friend or something. NOPE! It was her HUSBAND. He has apparently been gone for 25 years in Canada and the States working. 25 YEARS. And he is just now coming back. Apparently for good (hopefully, because Sister Ramsey is super happy now). So that was a curve ball we weren't expecting. Shout out to the Canadian missionaries for talking to him and giving him a Book of Mormon. He said we can teach him as well when we come over. Bonus!
Last Monday, I think...not too sure, time is weird on the mission, our car died because Sister Fisher left it on while we were sitting in a parking lot eating. So the Ap's had to come and jump start out car. 'Twas an adventure as well.
Healthwise I am doing a lot better!!! My cough is almost completely gone! I only cough once in a blue moon. Haha While we were contacting on Saturday we stopped by to see a Lady named Onica that we had met a few days prior. She heard me cough, ran into her house, and came out with a tube that had red liquid in it. She randomly starts pouring it into my water bottle haha. My water was half frozen and as she was pouring it she said it was a flavoring that apparently helps with your immune system. I read the label and it looked safe so I was gonna try it out. She then made Sister Fisher pour a lot of her water into my bottle because mine "didn’t have enough". Poor Sister Fisher. It was hilarious though. We were dying afterwards because of how funny it was. Lol, you would have had to have been there.
Anyways, this week should be awesome! Tuesday, Elder Martinez (FROM THE SEVENTY) and his wife are going to come out teaching with us for part of the day. No big deal :). Wednesday is MLC and we are car pooling people around for that and then I get to go on splits with my Sister from another Mister Sister Maughn. Thursday is Zone Conference! Stoked for that!! Friday...Sister Henry leaves for Utah to go to the MTC!! How exciting for her!!
I am looking forward to the great times we will no doubt have this week. Love and miss ya!
Love ya long time
