(I asked him if he had bought a messenger bag because of some pictures he sent. He's actually got his scripture bag on a strap and he uses that. I guess I should sent him a messenger bag......)
We had a primary presentation this week too, which was kinda funny. The primary is tiny, so it was really quiet when they would sing.
This week's been good. Not much going on, it's raining more, which is kinda nice, other than the fact we have to keep our bikes in the house now, so our tiny place is perpetually dirty. I've learned to just accept it and live in my own filth, which sounds awful, but you get used to it.
Well, this week I finished the Book of Mormon again. That was good. I'm studying the commandments right now. I'm making a list of things that we've been commanded to do to attain exaltation, and a lot of them are really simple, and I never actually knew they were commandments. Baptism and Marriage are obvious ones, but then there were things like praying in families, I didn't know studying every day was a commandment. I thought it was a good suggestion. Family history work is also a commandment, so I guess there's something for me to work on someday.
Had a lot of people stand us up this week. We started teaching this 13 year old kid, and he obviously only wanted to meet with us because he wanted to get to know a couple white guys. I thought it was funny, the second we started teaching, he totally turned off and zoned out. And once the lesson was over, he wouldn't stop asking us about America, Football, and Fast and Furious movies. We're probably going to drop him soon. Nice kid though.
We met another guy this week named Sam, who yelled at us as we rode by saying "It's over 9000!" So I yelled back, "Wow, that's really high" and he said, "yeah, it is." We realized that was a Dragon Ball Z reference and rode back to ask him, and we ended up talking about religion and conspiracies, he seemed really intelligent and cool. We'll hopefully start teaching him soon.
We still don't have helmets of our own, because no shop in the parish sells them.
We found a place called Woody's that sells the best rice and peas and fried chicken that I've had so far, and Elder Pace said it's the second best he's ever had. I really hope I stay in Portmore, because I'd eat there all the time!
That's about it this week. Just plunking along. No one is accepting baptismal dates. We have a couple investigators living basically like Mormons, who just don't want to be baptized yet, which is frustrating, but we're praying for them. Stuff's good though. We got the Ensign magazine. Jorg's talk is still my favorite.
I hope stuff's still good! I should probably figure out this whole Skype thing.
