This week was a really fun week and I have no clue why!
Tuesday was a recent convert's birthday. His name is Jerry and my companion and I made him a cake. It looked dang good. He told us after we had given it to him that it was his first cake anyone had ever made for him! He was stoked :)
Wednesday we continued to work on painting Brother Drakes's 'house'. That is going well and it is looking very nice :) I will take a picture this Wednesday when we go.
Thursday we cleaned up Sister Ince's yard. She is not a member but she is very nice. I believe she is investigating the church now. She lives in the Elder's area and her son is on a mission in Santo Domingo right now.
Friday we went into town. My companion and I had the opportunity to be the witnesses to get Keisha and Pap's marriage certificate. Soon it will be complete and then they can be baptized.
I am scared of their pet pigs they have but I overcame my fears a bit and helped Papa feed the pigs this week as well. They are sketchy animals sometimes. Never thought I would say that about a pig... :)
We got lost this week while trying to find a Less-active's house. That was pretty scary. St. Vincent is basically a bunch of hills so we have to drive up pretty big ones all the time. It is normal. The problem with that is that our car has been nicknamed "gutless"...it has no power when going uphill. Sometimes I have to get out of the car, my companion drive up it, and then I have to walk up the hill to the car. Even then it barely makes it sometimes. No this does not mean I have gained THAT much weight...the car simply is weak :))
But this week we got lost in an area we don't go to very often. It is famous for its sketchy roads. One wrong mess up and you could end up at the bottom of the hill you are driving up. We took a few wrong turns and ended up at the bottom of a really sketchy road. We couldn't back up it. That is dangerous and our car probably wouldn't make it anyways. So we had to contact one of the only houses down there so they would open their gate and we could back into it to get out of there. The Mother of the house actually ended up having to back our car for us and drive up the hill a bit because it was such a sketchy road. She was experienced with it seeing as how she drives it every day. With the help of a few more "good Samaritans" we were on our way back to a familiar area. It was a stressful and hilarious experience.
Saturday my companion and I cleaned the church. That was fun...sort of. I miss buildings in the states that have carpets. I miss vacuuming :)
Our Sister Training Leaders are coming here Wednesday night and will be with us for a couple days. So that means Sister Fisher and I will get to see each other again. It is always a unique experience when you get to see one of your old companions. That should be fun.
This Thursday is St. Vincent's Independence Day. There is a rumor going around that Prince William and Kate Middleton are going to be here for that. #fingerscrossed. We are hoping to see them :)
Love You loads and hope your week is fantastic. Thanks for the updates on everyone! :)
