Well this week went by super fast. We did a lot of service and it's been hard to catch up on sleep. I learned how to mix cement and plaster walls. So right now my back really hurts...
On Sunday we had no
investigators at church! I counted over ten that I thought were for sure
coming. We had success finding people and taught some really good
lessons, but somehow it was not enough. Roger and Kandis have moved again
and they can't even afford to come to church. But they are still going
to try to.
One thing I noticed about this place is every neighborhood has it's
own theme. Like the people are the same... One street we went down there
was probably five different nasty girls that wanted to know if we were
looking for wives. One lady was like 50! Another street everyone had
totally racist views. This guy said that Jesus Christ died for us not
the Africans. That's why you don't see any African names in the bible!
So basically he somehow made the connection that he cannot sin. And on
this other street I will just say everyone there had a very dirty mind.
It was cool the other day I heard the sound of some blues guitar
licks. So my companion and I followed the sound and found this guy
playin a nice les paul on his front porch. We talked for awhile and
invited me back for a jam session. I would go if I could, but he said he
doesn't talk about religion.
Another guy was playing guitar on the street, so I played him a song.
It made it so much easier to get his contact information. One day I
want to coordinate something were I could play some hymns or something
Another thing to note is today I shaved my head! I only did a number
4 though. It feels nice. I'm gonna try to figure out something so I can
send pictures. I might just have to go get them printed or something.
But all is well here in Sangre Grande. This is the last week of the
transfer and they are gonna move two new missionaries into our
apartment. Anyways love you guys - Elder Hale
