1. We did a service project on Friday. We chopped down a tree. With dull saws and an ax. It took the four of us almost 4 hours to cut it down then apart. I bet with a chainsaw it would have taken 30 minutes or less. Anyway, it was nice to help our neighbor, they are very old and wouldn't have been able to do it alone. Plus they always share their avocados, oranges, limes and other fruits with us.
2. Pineapples here don't give me canker sores and they are amazing. You can buy them everywhere right now pretty cheap, and on a stick to just eat!
3.This week I learned that hitch hiking (bolaia-ing) is in fact dangerous... Hmmmm who would have known.... We are fine, and still hitch hiking.... just more carefully :)
4. Update on a family: A member family we sometimes visit called us because one of the kids couldn't come with us to a lesson. We asked why, they said he had malaria... So, we went by to check up on them. ALL 3 KIDS HAVE IT. So, that really sucks to be them, but they're on the mend already. Bug nets and doxy are my friend here.
5. We figured out how to get Zilda's marriage documents for her. She is from way up north in Mozambique so it is really expensive (2000 metacias) to get there and back for the documents needed to get married. That's a ton of money. But we called in some favors with some missionaries up there in Gasa to bring them down when they come down this week. That will save the couple tons of money and hopefully they can get married/baptized quickly here!
That's about it for the week. I hope everyone is doing well and having a good time in Utah. I love getting your emails and letters (if they make it here). I sent like 13 letters to people who've sent me one. So keep an eye out for the response!
Baptism from two weeks ago in T-3.
Tiny pineapples on sticks, yum, no canker sores.
