Good morning everyone! This week was yet another spectacular one here in beautiful Guyana.
This week we had the opportunity to go to Zone Conference with all of Guyana. Lots of Elders. It was really cool, we talked a lot about working with recently baptized members of the church. We even had some members there who were preparing for missions and we had two people share their conversion stories of when they first got baptized. It was really cool, they talked a lot about the strength they received to actually make it, the converting power of the Book of Mormon and one woman talked about how because of the missionaries' invitations, she's "addicted to praying". I even got to meet an Elder Peters from the Netherlands, it's pretty fun talking with him because he was a little surprised to be speaking Dutch. He said, (in Dutch) that it had felt like forever since he spoke Dutch.
We also got our transfer calls, I'm going to La Grange, it's by Georgetown and over the river. I heard they even have a chapel, I'm really excited! I'm definitely going to miss Rose Hall and Elder Andrus but it should be a good experience.
I also got my alligator scripture case, I think I might name him either: Charmander, Snuggles or Al(ligator).
I forgot to mention, on Monday or apartment got flooded because of our washing machine pumping out water on our floor. It took us about 3 hours to bail, clean and replace everything back but it wasn't too bad; we still got to go and teach a lesson!
Not too much time today but I hope you all have a spectacular week!
A Note from Elder Andrus about the above photo: We flooded the apartment again! By we, I mean I…LOL We spent 3 hours bailing, mopping and sopping up water. There was 3 inches of water in the bedroom. It was SO bad. We cleaned it all up though. And now it smells really nice! Looking on the bright side. Lol
The Branch President's wife sends photos through facebook! We LOVE getting them! I believe her name is Malenie Hussain, although she goes by Pretty Maria on facebook. :)
