|Me roasting a pig with a Jab Jab helmet on.|
So, I had a really adventurous P-day yesterday! The whole zone got together and roasted a pig with some members and friends. It was really fun, but killing and roasting the pig was a bit graphic. The Polynesian missionaries did everything for us, though. To answer some questions, Carnival is just a reason to have a huge party and drink for several days, aha, it attracts tourism for the island... umm. the locals go crazy. Some paint themselves black with tar and drag a chain around while wearing horns. It's called the Jab Jab. Carnival is pretty dangerous and inappropriate at times, so we just stay inside all day, aha.
I've been able to see some Olympics when we eat at Pizza Hut, but other than that I'm suffering. Aha. But, there's this guy named Kirani James, and he's actually from Gouyave and he runs the Mens 400 meters in the Olympics. People looove him here! Everyone went crazy when he ran. He took silver this year. Pretty impressive!
I'm doing well. Transfer calls are next week, and I really hope Elder Lameta stays because I still kind of get lost in Gouyave, aha. But I think he might be leaving :/ We had a really cool experience with a less active family! Well, the mother comes every week, but her kids don't. So, we called them up and had FHE at their home and the family all wants to do it every week now, and they all came to church last Sunday (: So, we'll keep working with them. They're the Morris family, by the way, so pray for them! Thanks (:
A-ha moments? hmm... well I've really learned how important it is to ask questions when I teach. Asking them questions may change what you had planned to teach, but it will only change it to what's on their mind and what they're concerned about which is what your supposed to teach anyways (: The Senior Couple here were talking to me about it, and it's super true. That's the Mills, and they're also super cool!
I love you and hope you have a super week!
