We have been working really hard trying to visit and catch up to everyone. The amount of work to do here is unreal. There is always so much to do. So many people to see and not enough time to see them. We are doing our best though.
This week was really good. We have been teaching this guy named Aubrey. He served 9 years in the Guyana special forces. He likes to tell us stories about how he jumped out of air planes and did survival courses in the jungle living off of Jaguar and anaconda meat. He lives right across from the church. He works 6 days a week from 5am to 7pm doing security work. Sunday is his day to take care of the house and look after his sick wife. His wife Bibi has been very sick. She used to sit in on the lessons but the past few weeks she hasn't felt too well and has been in bed when we come and visit. We went to visit him Monday night and we saw there were people over at his house. He came out and he told us that Bibi had passed away that afternoon. He told us to come back Friday night. On Friday we went back to teach him and had a very spiritual lesson. We have been teaching him about the plan of Salvation the last few lessons. We were on our life on earth when we visited him. We talked about life and repentance and how everyone has to die. He told us how he had found a church that he is going to go to. We asked him what church is that and he said "Burn bush" Burn bush is the street our church is on. We had a good little laugh. After we were able to give him a blessing of comfort. After the blessing the smile on his face with tears in his eyes was priceless. Unfortunately he didn't make it to church yesterday and when we went to visit him he said it wasn't a good time and to come back the next day.
We also got to dig a big hole in the mud for a septic tank this week!
Love ya all
