"Good Morning! Wake up Mr. West, Mr. West!"
Like the Mozambicans who try to speak English, "How is it" fam?? haha It sounds like it was a full week of fun games and activities! Made me laugh so hard that Burke made it rain with the money that he got for his bday... Thatta boy.
So the first week the Golden State dupla has been back in action and it was a good one! Had some really good lessons and had a really good week of finding!
First, we had a lesson with Admiro and Alferida where we brought Frozys and popcorn and watched "Its a Mircale", the video President and Sister Kretly had done about the Mozambique Mission. They have been having some relationship issues so we thought this would be a good idea to show them how living the Law of Chastity and being baptized would bless their lives. The lesson went super well! Lots of laughs and lots of Spirit. After bearing our testimonies and asking if they had any questions or concerns, Admiro goes, "Questions or concerns no... Comment, yes... the porpcorn was good..." Elder Griffeth and I just started dying! He pulled a real Darrell move telling us to bring popcorn every visit but we shot that idea down hahaha.
Second, we taught Jose and Lucia the Word of Wisdom this week and we were a little sketched teaching it because when we had visited them at the first of the week they tried hiding some beer bottles from us, but when we taught them they really understood what we were teaching and the importance of this commandment. I hit Jose up with an example at the end of the lesson that when the next time his buddies want to go to the bar and he goes what is he going to do... after thinking about it for a minute he responded, "I will ask for juice!" in a super excited voice hahaha. They are doing really well with everything else as well and are working on getting the documents all ready to open their wedding process to be married and baptized in the early part of May! They cooked us dinner on Friday night it was quite the bomb if I do say so myself.
Third, Afonso and Jasinta are still working to pull of the "Miracle of Munhava" and track down any relatives close to go to the register to sign off for Jasinta. They are pretty confident that one of her cousins will be able do it this week! We have pushed their wedding and baptism back to May 7, where there will be 6 other families being married and baptisms! So we are all looking forward to that!
Other than that, this week we cooked up some dank breakfast burritos for lunch and it made me miss Rancheritos and Molca so much. Had some pretty funny run-ins with some drunk dudes this week! We met an inactive member outside of a bar yesterday, who was baptized in 2003. He couldn’t remember the name of the missionaries that baptized him but he told us that one of them was from Brooklyn and personally knew ODB... After talking to him about the Wu-Tang Clan for a minute he offered to have us over and listen to 36 Chambers... I sadly but happily rejected the offer hahaha. Also, we had a zone training with President and Sister Koch this past week and just got done playing soccer with President today. He confidently picked me but I had to apologize to him after cause my football coordination did not translate to the soccer field haha.
Love you all so much! Thank you for all of your prayers and love! I honestly feel them help throughout the day when little trials happen. Hope you all have a great week! "And remember... keep your stick on the ice." - Red (a quote for Papa B)
