This last week went by really fast. Last Saturday we had a Baptism for a young man named Tahiry. I gave a small talk about Baptism at the program.
Afterwards we went out to work and caught some appointments. At one of the appointments a lady had a new born baby. She gave birth last Wednesday. There is a saying here when some one gives birth that I find really funny but a little sexist. It goes like this, "Congratulations, you have a received a Water Carrier." That is if they had a baby girl. If it is a boy then you say, "Congratulations, you have received a Wood Chopper." She had a girl.
On Sunday we had 13 Investigators show up to church. Three families and a couple of single young men. The work has been going really good here. I like this area a lot.
Later that night, Elder Monson and i went to go catch our last appointment, but they were not there yet so we waited for a while. Shortly, an old Bebe (grandma) walked out of her house and began talking to us as we were waiting. She then gave us money and demanded us to go buy ourselves some bread, the only problem was that it was the sabbath. We did not want to be rude so we walked over to the nearest Episeri and then returned without bread. We told her they were out of bread and just returned the money. She then ran inside and yelled out to us, "can you eat rice?" We obviously replied yes and then she came outside with two plates of rice with some veggies on top. We kindly thanked her and then ate dinner with this charitable Bebe. To give you a good visual of what she looked like is that old witch Yubaba from the film Spirited Away. Except she was dark skinned and a lot more skinny.
That is all the stuff.
