Week #32 - This Little Piggy Counts His Blessings

Hey Family!

This week was awesome!

The District
Elders Koegler, Gardner, Biddulph, Knight, Jackson & Graham
I went on a trade off with Elder Koegler on Wednesday which was great. He goes home in December.

Sugar Cane
Thursday was really eventful. I tried a ton of new food for the first time: ribena, a type of black currant used to make all kinds of juice, sugar cane which tastes like a block of wood soaked in sugar water (pretty good though), and pig tail which was super good.

Pig Tail
I also went to do a baptismal interview for a 12-year-old kid named Odane
that the zone leaders were teaching. He is way cool and was able to be baptized Sunday morning!

On Friday, Lisa, one of our investigators was making a bunch of chicken back and chips and she gave Elder Jackson and I two small boxes of it for free. Chicken back is awesome.
Willowdene House Farm Puzzle - Check.
Elders Biddulph, Graham, Gardner & Jackson
Also, the zone leaders bought a puzzle so we would just do that when we got home at nights. We finished it this morning around 7am.

Saturday was transfer calls. Elder Jackson will be going to Port Antonio and I will be training here in Spanish Town. I'm way stoked!

We went to go see Rose Sunday night (she has been having a hard time getting her husband's approval to pursue church) and the first thing she told us was that she talked with her husband and told him that this makes her happy, and he totally supports her now. She told us she was going to pray about a baptism date! We're starting to see some great blessings this week. Also, Sister Murdock should be getting baptized next Sunday (September 27th)!!

Lots of blessings this week. The area is really starting to pick up which is a great feeling. We just need to keep it going and not slow down at all. That's about it for this week. Until next time!

Love and miss you guys!

Elder Graham

This week Cody’s sister, Brittani, asked him what five of his favorite things about Jamaica were – his reply:
1. Food
2. People
3. My tan lines
4. Wild animals that just roam the streets
5. Music that plays super loud from giant speakers around town
So glad to see his priorities are still in order...

pitch black Jamaica on roads full of potholes...
We bought pizza and went up on the roof to eat it
Saturday night because, well... why not?
