.....September 28-October 5.....
hello friends and family,
this week again hasnt been very exciting, but thats alright. i cant believe its october already, and its already the fourth week of this transfer!!! kinda nuts, time is flying. that also means that it is getting closer and closer to the day when n'dri gets transferred... that is definitely not fun to think about but i guess he has to go sometime right??
so everyone has been talking about how awesome general conference was... i wouldnt know, we didnt get it over here. but im sure it was as great as everyone said.
so my ward split on monday!! there has been so much growth in the past few months that now it is just the koumassi ward and the marcory ward meeting in the same building but at different times. kinda exciting right? also i have been getting more and more people at the english lessons, which is pretty dang fun. i know im not here to teach english, but its helping us find new people to teach, and its providing a service for the local members here.
as we draw nearer to halloween, i have been thinking of my costume. something with a shirt and tie. i might go as a missionary or something. i dont know, i havent decided yet.
also, tell annie and youyou banza that i learned how to make alocco. they would be very proud. its pretty dang good so when i get home i will have to make it for you all.
well the work is progressing great, we have dozens of awesome people we are teaching, my companion and i continue to grow closer. its way hard being away from everyone, but i know that this is the right thing to be doing. i am learning so much, and growing so much.
dad as you asked, here are some ideas for a christmas package.
-black/brown athletic socks (nike or adidas, midcalf) because my dress socks are too thin and got sooo many holes in them
-flip flops, not the thong kind, nor velcro
-sharpie pens(not markers) in different colors for marking scripturesthats it really... of course the snacks always rock
well i love you all and miss you terribly, but know that i am doing fine and that this work is God's work, not my own.
til next week!!
