Week 1 in Curepe!

This was in Penal before I left. Cheers!

Hello folks! This week was really good. They sort of just dropped us off in an empty apartment and said "Have fun." We didn't have a phone, food, and my comp didn't even have his luggage yet. But Elder Reyes and I hit the ground running. We worked really hard and found a lot of people. One man we found has been looking for a church because he wants to come close to God before he dies. He has diabetes and lost one kidney already. The spirit was strong in the lesson with him. And he came to church! So the members already trust us because of that. This new area is a very busy city and I really like it. Lots of places to eat and plenty people to talk to. I have also seen white people! It is really strange for me to see that. But it feels great to be in a ward the members are great. We got fed by a family named the Sookhans on Sunday and they are awesome. It's great to have strong member support. The people here take missionary work very seriously. A recent convert named Bro Mohan goes out with missionaries just about every day. He is very into it.
This morning all the elders from my district went to Maracas beach. We played ultimate frisbee and did our studies. It was very beautiful and the weather was perfect. And to top it all off we had bake and shark. It is a new favorite food of mine. Sorry I don't have too much time today to write but there should be plenty to update you with next week.
Love you guys!
Love, Elder Hale
