One thing I like about Guyana? - Using goodnight as a greeting. Like “Hello goodnight” (at the evening time of course). Anyways, things are going splendidly here.
This week was pretty snazzy. We had a goal of finding 10 new investigators (basically someone new we teach the first lesson to). On Friday we only had 3 so we really needed to pick it up. Elder Hamilton, one of the Assistants, surprised us on Saturday and went out with us the whole day. The President wanted to visit Guyana and talk with all the zone leaders and stuff like that for a few days, so Elder Hamilton did exchanges with us. What an example of teaching and testifying to everyone we meet! I really learned a lot. Not just to invite people to church like everybody else does, but to also talk about how there’s a prophet on the earth today like Moses or Noah! It was really great. We reached our investigator goal due to us praying for help and working hard to find new people.
Also, each day we’re supposed to get 20 contacts (someone random that we talk to on the street). It’s not that hard to get, but President Gamiette has changed it to 20 people we get contact information for, which is A LOT harder. Took us all day to get 20.
We baptized Michelle on Saturday. President Barrow, the Elders Quorum President was chosen to perform it. She was so excited to be baptized! In the picture, a random member that was there jumped in our picture with just the missionaries and Michelle. Brother Baptiste! Weird guy, but pretty funny, haha.
Basically the whole us getting kicked out of Guyana thing blew over. We never heard what happened and everybody says it’s all good so we are here to stay. Tinesha moved out Saturday so we had to hand her over to the next missionaries. She was progressing well and had been to church two weeks in a row! It wasn’t cool. But she’ll still probably get baptized which is great.
Well that was pretty much it for this week. Pictures are included. One was a dark black sky looming over Georgetown. It got worse after we left and began to POUR, POUR POUR! I’ve never seen so much rain in my life. Next picture is of this member family’s son. He is the funniest. Smiles so big like 90 percent of the time! Last picture is of Michelle’s baptism. It was a good week! I love you all so much.
