The Trio Returns!

Things are going well here in Guyana although they've been pretty crazy this past week!

This week has been pretty good. We got Elder Hunt on Thursday and we got a bike for him but it was broken so that whole night I ran to every appointment. Let's just say I was a little bit sweaty. If you saw the white guy in Guyana running with a bike everywhere in the Ghetto, yeah that was me. Then the next night his bike broke again so I ran again! And on Sunday it broke yet again... but we all walked that day. His bike is being pretty janky! We had an international day of service (Mormon helping hands) on Saturday where our branch did a blood drive so we were there most of the day.  It was a great success and we had some good contacts at it. We met temple workers from Brazil at it too which was crazy! They were visiting Guyana and wanted to find the missionaries so that they could go to church! They found us and they were super awesome people. Sunday there was a blackout from 8-6 so we were in the apartment with no AC and it got up to 90 in there... That was fun.... NOT! We weren't even really moving and we were still dripping sweat... Yeah it gets a bit hot here.

A mysterious thing happened Saturday morning when we were getting ready to go. Something wet started falling from the sky. It only lasted about 30 seconds but I'm pretty sure it's called rain. Haven't felt that for a while!

I gave my first baptism invitation and the people said yes in the first lesson! That was super cool and they are a great family. Slowly but surely I'm getting better at teaching and I'm relying on the Lord a lot in it and He's providing! 

Also last night was some Hindu holiday thing that we went to for a bit. Like a parade thing but it was pretty cool. It was hard to do much without bikes! 

On Wednesday we got 4 new investigators which was pretty much unheard of! Super excited about that and we're wishing the best for all of them. We want them to feel the same joy that we feel about the gospel of Jesus Christ. THe gospel is for everyone and we want everyone to receive it!

It was a good week and a bit crazy with figuring out how to fit three missionaries in the apartment but we're figuring it out. I hope you all had a great week! I love you all!
