Overplaatsingen Telefoontjes!

Hey everyone this week is transfers! So I've learned that I'm going to be staying here in Uitkijk but I'll be getting Elder Rodas as my new companion, he's a pretty cool guy, he's from Belgium so that'll be good for helping my Dutch become more fluent! (I hope) My current area of Uitkijk is so large that in about 6 more weeks I will have rode across the Continental United States!

This week has been interesting, it's been raining a lot so Elder James has been very sad which makes me laugh so it kind of ends up having the reverse effect on me. We haven't gotten completely soaked in a while but you never know. Side note; these kids at the cyber are trying to navigate using the map in GTA 5 together, there was a lot of pointing and yelling, I'm trying very hard not to laugh. We've also been doing a lot of talking to people, we've also ridden through a lot of mud I have a clean shoe on and also a muddy shoe. Also, Elder James got bit by a monkey the other day, I have attached a picture of the perpetrator and yes he's adorable. He almost bit me but he just grabbed onto my shoe very suddenly and I quickly moved my leg back. Elder James wanted the monkey to grab his shoe as well but it did that and more, bit him on the ankle. The other picture attached is of the Saramacca river, we were biking and so we stopped for a second at the top to rest and this pair of ladies by the water's edge started laughing at me so I just waved back and told them good evening. Well that was my week and I hope you all have a fabulous beginning of yours!

Fawaka mensen!

Fawaka mensen! This week was a good week, it was nice being back, working in my area again! It's been raining a lot recently so it's certainly been interesting have to work around it but we're managing. This week I was on an exchange in Wanica with Elder Jennings and it was pretty fun. His bike doesn't have brakes (they broke) so it was very interesting navigating through traffic, especially considering how hectic the city is with of it's cars! I also ate armadillo and fresh coconut! Armadillo is interesting but lekker! The dark meat tastes like pork and the white meat tastes like turkey, tasty all around! Also, one of our members finally got her visa to go live in America, she and part of her family have been separated for about 6 years so she's very excited to go. I'm going to miss Sister Jasmine but she's going to be so happy when she sees her family again! Today we played Werewolf with all the other missionaries and boy do I stink! I need to get better at lying or something but maybe that's a good thing! Whenever someone accuses me when I'm a werewolf I laugh or smile a bit and I'm exposed! We played two different versions today; Book of Mormon themed and Star Wars themed! I was a Gadianton Robber and also a Sith Lord, aye. Elder James got bite by a monkey, I attached a picture of the Evil-Doer.
Well that's all for today people, hope you're doing well!
