Crab Legs

Hello everyone this week was crazy, oh so on Monday to start out we had crabs when i finished writing home my comp and i each at 1.5 crabs in America that would cost maybe 20 bucks well you would think the same thing here normally yes but we found a lady who sold them to us for 1000fcfa that comes out to a huge 2 dollars ha-ha so we bought them again this week and some massive i mean massive shrimp. Other than that point, this week was busy we were driving all around Douala to talk to our amis we have a really big sector. We had to go out to pk14 (sounds like peka 14) it turns out that we believe each pk is a kilometer so on our way back we decided to walk from pk12 to pk10 it was like a long walk. This week our mission president is changing kind of crazy I’ve obviously never had that before and nobody in this mission knows what that's like hopefully we will get to meet him in a week or two so that's cool. Well we got a sweet contact who is a university student and he likes to play tennis so we are seeing a ton of potential with him. I love you guys I know that the book of Mormon is true and that if we do our best the lord will help us fill in the gaps. I love you all thank you for all of your support.

PB & J

Hello Everyone,

This week flew by. We had Zone Conferences and District Conferences. It was awesome. I ate peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches. They were totally awesome! We had a totally sweet lesson on Sunday with a lady who has been being taught for a while. She shared with us about her child who she lost a couple of months ago. It was very intense but we followed the spirit, at one point I felt impressed to say something and I told myself no I don’t want to bring that up but the spirit shoved me again so I brought it up and it worked out perfectly as it should have! I know that the Lord is aware of us and his spirit will guide us IF we are willing to listen and follow his council we can be real tools in the Lords hands. I love you guys,

7 Languages!


This week was pretty cool, we had splits 2x. So I spent Wednesday with Elder Tall and Friday with Elder Biaya. On Thursday we went over to one of our partial member families and they surprised us with a little birthday party for 20 of the family members. It was cool. We had endole, pasta, creeps salad, and red sauce it was awesome. Then we sang Happy Birthday in English, French, Lingala, Malagasy, Douala, and their maternal language oh and Spanish too! 7 different languages it was pretty cool. On Sunday we had a missionary from the States who served here a long time ago come back. He’s doing cultural research. It was really neat that he came back to his mission. Well that’s about all for this week. Love you guys. Have a wonderful week,
