I Ate Squid!!!

That's crazy! Jamie got hit by a car! I hope he is all good! keep me updated on that please!

Our week was OK it would have been better if I didn't get a cold. My nose won't stop running! It is really hard to get to sleep most nights. 

Not bad, but I wouldn't get it again

So right now in our area we ran out of gas for our stove. So we have been using a charcoal stove for the past 4 weeks now. It is not hard to do or to start up but it does take a long time for the charcoal to be ready and hot enough to cook. So for lunch we don't have time to go through that process because we need to get out and work. So we usually go to the market place that is probably a 5 minute walk from our house. Every weekday they have sudan (rice topping) and rice of course. Well when we were there Elder Basay got this one andit looked pretty good to eat so I got it too. So what I thought was vegetables turned out to be squid! I couldn't return it because I had started eating it, so I finished it. It was good, but I don't think I would get it again.

Yesterday we had an awesome lesson with the Bellos, they are my Filipino family. I reactivated them, I've been helping them with all things involving the church since the day I was transferred into the area. We taught about the Atonement and how we can show our love and respect for the sacrifice and love of Jesus Christ when he died for us so that we might live. The spirit was definitely there. It was a great lesson we actually have Family Home Evening with them later today. It should be fun. I'll take pictures.

I really miss going to Cardiff, and spending time with the whole family! We have to go to Cardiff when I get home!

I miss and Love MY family,
