Hey fam. sounds like mom and dad are just haveing the time of their life down there in mexico. what punks right!! ha ha Sounds like kirsty could burst any day and when that happens happy uncle ralphy will have to wait about a year and a half to see her!!! It wierd to think that I will be going back to a new member in the family.
So this week has been different to say the least. So this week in angola they finally had there elections. It was last thursday or so, but these elections only happen every 5 or 6 years. So for them this is a big deal. Unluckly for the missionaries that means that we had some restrictions on how late we could prosilite and things like that. So two days before elections and two days after we had to arrive in our house at 6 pm This was kind of a bummer to find out but then we found out that the day of elections we werent aloud to leave our house, or in our case that chaple.The other four days it was easy we just switch our days around and did our studies latter and went and visited peaple in the morning. But the day of elections we did our studies and had a tun of time left. Soooooo we decided to have a barbaque:) ha ha the day before we bought a huge box of ribs and some coals. We mad ourselves a little stove by getting two sinderbloxs and the grill inside our oven:) That I why I am happy I am living in the cassquell chaple so that we would actually walk out side but allso for the 10 ft tall wall suronding that chaple ha ha. It was a pretty good time.
Elections effected some other things to, including church.... So this week we invited about 15 people and every single one of them said "sim sim vou vou." We expected to just have a great turn out with people at church. When we walked into the chaple guess how many of them should up..... the big gouse egg!!!!! 0..... To say the least It was a little disceriging. But church ended up to be really good though. We had an area 70 come and we got to hear from him while we were in sacrament and preistood meeting. At the end he told said he wanted to talk to all of the missionaries. He gave us some amazing words of inspiration during it this big old guy named elder wilhelm started to tear up:) It really gave me more hope to continue out the day. It felt as if he was talking to me personally... It was jsut what i needed. It is always just so interesting how the lord will answer your prayers through others.:)
Well Hey I love you all so much and I pray for you all every day.
