African Food in the White House

Week 1

Yes my family and friends!

Well this week we had the charge from president Mehr to teach these peeps about fasting and paying a fast offering because no one is doing it in the Caribbean. So we went to tons of members and clearing taught them and invited them to fast with us to be able to find or think of someone that they could share the gospel with. President Mehr made clear that a fast is 24 hours without food or water and anything less is disobedient besides those with health conditions. Also without the fast offering it's not complete. So on Sunday we had less actives that hadn't been to church in 6 months fasting and paying their fast offering. Our branch President's shirt pocket was full of envelopes! That was definitely our biggest success of the week.

We did a lot of less active hunting but the people we were looking for were either long gone or nuts. We met this rasta guy and the first thing he told us was that he shook Wilford Woodruffs hand and he gets visits from all kinds of bible characters all the time. At that point we just looked at each other and had a little fun with the guy. He was clearly high out of his mind. He played us all these songs on his keyboard. One of which was called "African food in the white house" hahahahaa Later I said to my comp jokingly "I don't think we should focus on that guy"

After church on Sunday we broke our fast with some curry iguana at the branch presidents house. It tastes like chicken but looks like godzilla... This transfer I am learning a lot of local food and I am gonna eat tons of provisions like these people do. Like every black guy here is buff with a six back cause all they do is hard construction work and then eat things like sweet potatos and rice. Even old guys! So I'm gonna give it a try. haha.

Love you guys! Have a good week(:

With love,

Elder Hale
