Getting hot

Hey everything is going well. Its been really hot here. life is good though. 

Bad news. The Jehovah Witnesses have been teaching Brother Prince sign language so he has decided to quite his investigation with us and go with them instead. 

We have been doing lots more finding. Looking around the church. We have found some former investigators from years back and some new people. Met a guy named Lyndon. He used to work for Caribbean cruises and has been all over the world. We are teaching him this week. Lots of our lessons fell through this week so it just gives us more time to find new people.

That's my week

Hey everything is going great so far. We are visiting lots of people. Marzina turned on us and went on a big rant on how she can't be baptized because she was already baptized. That was really frustrating because we were able to see the spirit work on her so much and she just turned on it. oh well. We are still working with Jacky and Jada towards baptism but they aren't getting any support from their family. Trying to help them with that. But on a more positive note we are working with a investigator named Kim. The missionaries worked with her and her husband before and they were going to be baptized but they weren't legally married to her husband and he left to work in the interior before I got here. Then Kim left to the Essiqubo and was gone for a while but is back now. Her husband is supposed to be coming out in October and they plan on getting married then and being baptized on the 14th! anyways that's my week.

Spirit of God

Hey 

Don't worry about hurricanes here. Some how Guyana doesn't seem to get hit by any natural disasters. Just rains and floods that's all. 

It sounds like your pretty busy back home. We have been too. We are trying to see as many people as possible. Ravindra was confirmed a member of the church on Sunday. We were happy to see him. His Grandma didn't try to take him away this week. We are working really hard with this one lady named Marzina. She is the funniest lady ever. She is great. We have been working hard on trying to get her to understand Priesthood authority. After explaining the restoration on the priesthood again this week she told us she could feel the power and spirit of God was with us and agreed to be baptized on October 14. My only worry for her is transitioning from her current church to the Church of Jesus Christ. The Lord will work miracles in her. 

Anyways that's all I got

Team N/A Safety

Hey everything went really well this week. We had Ravengra and sister Shirley's baptism on Saturday. That went really well. I'll send you the pictures. Ravengra never showed up to Church to receive the Holy Ghost. We are going to talk to him. 
We are working really hard. We are looking for lots of new people around the church. We are finding a lot of less actives. Most aren't too interested in coming back to church. 
We are having really good progression with Jacky and Jada. We have issued them a baptism date. Don't have too much more to report on. 

Here we have a picture of the baptism, the church and Team N/A Safety at the Sports day event.

Black Water Creek

hey this week was great. lots of biking trying to get to everyone. we gave Leon a baptism date for September 30th. Sister Shirley and Ravengra came to church all on their own on Sunday. Ravengra is 9 and that's pretty impressive for him. He is really funny. 

We had Zone conference here at the Canje chapel and president Egbert came and taught Ravengra. Those two got along really well. Ravengra and sister Shirley are being baptized on Sunday. We are keeping busy and constantly looking. This week we had a lesson fall through and so we stopped for a minute to decide what to do. A guy came walking by so I stopped him and started talking to him. He said he was coming back from the New Amsterdam Clinic and that he was some hearing doctor. I told him we are teaching a man who can't hear and can't afford hearing aids and asked him what he suggests. He said send him into the clinic and they will do some test to find out what kind of hearing aids he needs and if he can't afford them they can put him on a waiting list for the Starky foundation. Once a year this foundation comes to Guyana and donates hearing aids to everyone on the list for free but he said they already came for this year so it may be a little wait. We told Brother Prince that and he said he has already gotten his ears checked in Georgetown and they didn't offer him anything so he has kinda just accepted the fact that he can't hear. He said he would be willing to give this a try. The doctor wasn't too interested in hearing our message though. He said that he was in a rush. haha but that was my week.

Here's a picture of I think its the Canje river just under the bridge to New Amsterdam and a picture of black water creek and a dead anaconda on the side of the road just outside of our apartment

Getting people to church

Hey 

Everything is really good here. We are struggling with getting people to church. I hope we don't have to push back too many baptisms because of that. All and all life is good. We have been doing lots of biking. It gets really tiring. 

We are working with a guy named Brother Prince. His baptism is set for September 9. He's been coming to church except for this Sunday because of work. Brother Prince can't hear and needs hearing aids and so we are trying to help him with that. We asked some of the Senior couples here about that and they said that we don't have the budget to buy him some but told us to look into some other organizations and see if they can help. Do you have any ideas? Right now we have to wright everything down for him. Luckily he can read and talk but its very slow teaching him. All and all things are good and we are working with more new people. Some of the which are Jacky and Jada. We met them on the way to a teaching appointment. They are really cool. Jada lives with her Grandparents Jacky and Tarens. Her real parents aren't really there. Jacky is really good at making Jada study and explains everything we teach. They even came to church on Sunday. We also met a guy named Leon. He is a Prosecutor at court and he was telling us all about some of the crazy and messed up cases he has to deal with.He used to study the bible online. He is picking up everything really fast so far but we are still really early in the teaching process. Anyways that's my week. 

Enjoy the dry heat and A/C!

Big green building

Hey everyone everything is good. 

Our Branch is a big green church building. I think the village is called Cumberland East Canje. All of the villages here are very close to each other so when you go over the bridge from New Amsterdam you are in Sheet Anchor. If you turn at the Canje corner you go into Cumberland and then Canefield and so forth. If you go strait you go into Village #2 and then Palmyra. 

We are working with some people. One of which is Shirley. Shirley's son doesn't like it when we come over so we take her to a less active ladies house close by. Her baptism is shceduled on the 26th. Its really cool because Sister Liela hasn't gone to church in a long time so she is really excited to be fellowshipping Shirley and coming back to church. We are also working with a young boy named Ravendra. His step Dad is a less active member but doesn't meet with us. His parents are supportive of us though. Ravengra is 9 years old and is planning on being baptized on the 26th. Then we have Sister Jooney. She is a very funny lady. She has been investigating the church for a long time but she has a hard time coming to church because her mom breaks into her house when she leaves and gives away all of her stuff. She will pick locks and crawl through windows to get in. We are trying to push her for baptism on the 26th as well. We are just trying to get her to consistently come to church first. Those are our main ones for now. 

The branch president is really good. We are trying to work with them. The district president is from our branch. We are doing lots of work with the less actives. So many less active people in Guyana. Everywhere you go. 


Here is a picture of Macy and Shareefa at their baptism in my last area.

Love you all

Kiatuer Falls

Hey I'm doing really good here in Canje. i spent the first part of the week in the other Diamond area helped them learn our area a little and got to see some of theirs. It was really good serving around elder Johnson for  days. They moved me out Thursday and now I'm here in Canje with Elder Nance. He is from California but has lived in Florida, Alabama and Utah before living there. 

We are doing really well and have been doing a lot of biking. We live in Burn Bush Dam just down the road from the Church in East Canje. I am adjusting to the new area pretty quick. Anyways its a pretty cool place.  Something really cool is a Sister just got back from the Canada Toronto mission from here. 

Unfortunately I wasn't able to see the baptisms on Saturday but hopefully I'll get some pictures sent to me so I can send them to you. 

Here is a picture with me and Rasta-man. Rasta-man is the man who fixed our bikes when they broke down. we tried teaching him but he just told us how he was a Rasta Muslim and invited us to the Maj id.





I also added one of me and the Whaul Family. I am standing next too Macy who was baptized Saturday.


This last picture is with me and Kimmbly and Sheena Savory. They came to the last Zone Conference and gave me a picture of Kiatuer falls that Sister Savory painted for me. 



I love you all so much!

Canje

Hey 
This week was really good. We had two baptismal interviews this week for Macy and Shareefa. They both are being baptized next Saturday the 29th
Last Saturday we had transfer calls. Moore missionaries are leaving for home than are coming in to the mission so the Diamond North and South areas are taking over our area. Elder Bigler is being transferred to Diamond South and I'm being transferred too Canji! At least I think that's how its spelled. Its way on the other side of the country in the Berbice Provence. My companion will be Elder Nance. I leave for there on Thursday but will be with the Diamond North Elders until then. Probably help them learn the area a little while I am still here to help them. 
Something really cool. While in Vreed En Hoop i was teaching a lady and her daughter. They moved here to Diamond and we lost contact of them. The other week while on an exchange we drove past them and I told the Elder to stop. We are now reteaching them. If I wasn't here for this little time the missionaries would have never found them but now they are able to teach them again. I'm a little sad to be leaving so soon but I am looking forward to serving in Canji!

Michael Jackson dance off

Hey its so good to her from everyone again. 

My week went really well. No real complaints. We have been teaching and visiting lots of people lately. We have been teaching a girl named Macy. She is living with her aunt's family who are all members. We have been preparing her for baptism but progress seemed a little slow. She was having a hard time going to church because she kept having work and they would always tease her for quitting drinking coffee.  Then a couple of weeks ago she got fired from her job and she has been coming to church and hasn't been struggling with coffee since! She really has been building her testimony in the last few weeks and its  great to see the positive results of living the lord's commandments. Her baptism is set for the 29th. 
Everything has been going well here in Diamond and I really have nothing to complain about. still lots of rain and lots of happiness. 
There is so many good people here of all backgrounds. We got challenged by a black guy to a dance off to Beat it by Michael Jackson. He had some pretty good moves but we didn't challenge him back. He just yelled hey white guys as we rode by and started dancing as we rode by so we gave him a big thumbs up and kept riding. The church here really helps bring everyone closer and  it really wonderful to see. Its a good place here.

Rain every day

 Wow I'm an Uncle! That's awesome! 

Sounds like home is hot and crazy! Good to hear everyone is doing so well. This week was pretty good for me. Today is the first day of July we haven't had pouring rain! its great! We have been absorbing the sun lots too. Especially today! Nice and hot!

This week was good. We visited lots of people and had some really good lessons. Not a lot of really cool stories but we are working with a few people. We have had to move all of our baptismal dates back because no one is progressing fast enough. we have been looking for plenty people to teach. Its been going alright. 
Can't complain too much! Rain rain rain. Ever since I have gotten here its rains everyday. It will rain really hard for a couple hours and then as fast as it comes in it goes. You really can't tell when its going to rain or stop because it comes and goes so quick. Life is good!

Had to celebrate USA's birthday with some brownies and candles. Elder Bigler and I and Elder Hill and I.

Bananas

Hey this week was good!

I saw some big iguanas in our yard to day.  That was pretty cool.

We have been biking lots and trying to dodge the rain. I think I am getting the hands of everything her in Diamond. Life is good. I don't really have anything to complain about. Nothing really big has happened lately. We have been doing some searching and looking for some new people to teach. Nothing really out of the ordinary. 

Hey hows that for Bananas. I hope I make great grandpa Fisher proud. These bananas are a little smaller though than the ones in his picture while he was on his mission in Tonga. . I saw them and took the opportunity. Also took a Canada Day mirror selfie.  





Love you all so much

Rastafarian

Hey  this week has been good. The address for our house says we live in Great Diamond and we work in the scheme mostly. Our area goes a little into Golden Grove too. 
This week has been great and I feel like I am getting the area down. 
There are a lot more Christians in this area but still lots of Hindus and Muslims. Lots more Rastafarian people too. We contacted one named Jones and are going back to teach him on Tuesday but I'll be on an exchange that day in Potentia. His dreadlocks were way past his butt and he said he hasn't cut his hair in 30 years! 
Its pretty cool here and I am really enjoying being Elder Bigler's companion. 
I really enjoyed hearing everyone's little messages! 
I bet Kiana will go to the Dominican Republic. Thanks for all of the support!

Diamond Central


Hey
Everything is great! Diamond Central is great. Everyday is busy for us. Lots of fun though. Home sounds crazy as always. Life is good and i am very happy. Happy to hear how everyone is doing
Elder Bigler is awesome and I feel like I am really going to enjoy it here. 

Your question about the Demerara River. Well its defiantly not dried up. The water is gold. There is like no blue water in Guyana. Remember the pictures I sent on the boat. That was me crossing the river. 

The Savory family is the best family. They are so cool and take very good care of the missionaries. That is where we Skyped at. 

Diamond Central is just what the mission calls the area. The area is mostly the Diamond scheme (the name of where we are at) and parts of Grove. Its a much smaller area but more dense. It also rains a lot here. Everything has been really sweet.

 This is what happens when  Elder Fisher accidentally locks the keys in the new house. Luckily they were on the shelf but we still had to get creative and go fishing.

Leaving Vreed en Hoop

Hey 

Well big news! Transfers is this week and I'm...... Leaving Vreed - En - Hoop and moving to Diamond Central with Elder Biglor. I leave tomorrow at around 12. It will be pretty good.     
(Note from Dad....Since this email came in I have been looking for Diamond Central with no help from Google. I did go onto the "Trinidad, Port of Spain" Facebook page and asked if anyone could tell me where Elder Fisher was headed "Diamond Central." I got flooded with responses. He is in Vreed en hoop which is on the north side of the Demerara river, across from Georgetown. Diamond area is an area on the south side of the river and it is split into 3 areas. Georgetown is in the most north area, then heading south its Glen Park area and then Diamond. So he is about 45 minutes away from his old area just on the opposite side of the river. Then i got a message from the     Ali-Savory family from Vreed en hoop and they said "Elder Fisher is an awesome missionary, my family loves him dearly. He is all good" Also I got a message from Elder Bigler's mom stating that "Diamond is just outside of Georgetown. He will be serving with my son." I found out that his new companion is from Salem Utah and has been serving since December. He also had to serve 6 weeks states side while waiting for his visa to come. 
There were others but it was pretty cool instantly connecting with all these people that had connections with Elder Fisher)

(Back to Elder Fisher's letter) Sultan's baptism was on Saturday. It went really well. He is such a cool guy. He still hasn't missed church since his incident. It also turns out Dianna is related to Brother Savory! He is the the guy I sent a picture of a few weeks ago who left to work in the interior. She seems very prepared and Sultan is making a great fellow-shipper. 
It is very hot here and yes it rains a lot. We do get lightning but its just a flash in the clouds and there is no thunder ever. Its kinda strange. 
All and all things have been really good. I'm going to miss Vreed - En - Hoop.


A picture of us with Sultan And Brother Peter who baptized him as well as Brother Jumen, then just us and Sultan and then the beautiful greenish brown water that comes out of the baptismal font. it was a really good baptism!



Finally found a live centipede. That thing is nasty!  It's HUGE! and moved fast.

New Investigator

Hey! I'm so glad to hear Rob and Dawn got sealed! That's so awesome! 
So Sultan! His baptism is scheduled for Saturday and we are getting him all ready. We ran in to some problems yesterday however. We went over to his house last night and there was a girl there. He introduces us to her. They told us that her name is Dianna and she got fired from her job the other day. Oh and her house was owned by her boss so she got kicked out had no where to go. Sultan's son worked with her and asked Sultan is she could please live with him until she finds a place to stay. Sultan said yes out of the goodness of his heart so he agrees. Unfortunately even though nothing is going on he cant get baptized if he's living with a girl as there is a chance they could break the law of chastity. Sultan was pretty shocked when we told him that. Dianna was very kind and understanding and was willing to try to find somewhere else. Sultan thought for a second and said. "What if I separate this side of my house. There is only one door to it from the inside and one to the outside. What if I seal of that door and build some shelves and things so she can live here. I'll stay up all night doing it if i have too." We weren't too sure and so we gave President Egbert a phone call to see what he thinks. He said that would be fine as long as he understands the law of chastity and she moves out in the near future. Little bit of a scare there. Sultan is such a boss (cool guy). And he is the kindest person I have ever met. Life is good. And we got another investigator out of this whole situation. Dianna is very kind and moved here from Venezuala in 2009. 

Anyways I love you all so much!

Long term goal for Guyana

Hi!
Well it sounds like it was a very busy week for all of you. This week has been kinda busy for me too. Just lots of teaching and finding. Lots of traveling too! 
We had to go to Georgetown for our interviews with President Egbert on Saturday and yesterday we had to go to the East Coast Chapel for Zone Conference. It has been a very good week. 
Nothing really big happened. just same old same old. We learned all about temples for zone conference and we're pretty lucky to have one so close to home. It truly is the house of the Lord. The long term goal for Guyana is to get a stake and eventually a temple. Go to the temple often. 
Well its very easy here to make the first contact. Just about everyone will tell you their name and phone number and will allow you to come back you just need to use hints and most importantly the spirit to know who to return to and visit. Its when you start teaching them that things start to get difficult. People here love talking but have a hard time changing. Teaching the Priesthood is one of the hardest things for investigators to understand. One of the most effective ways for us to teach the priesthood is comparing it to keys to a house or a gate. You have to use lots of visuals and comparisons. Then they start to slowly understand. 
Branch council... Its interesting here. Its gotten better but its really hard to get member help here.

Letter to mom

Hey Mommy!!!

It sounds like it was a pretty good week for all of you.

My week has been pretty good. Lots of sun and lots of rain. We have been outside lots too.

Its cool seeing how everyone here gets along. We met three moms the other day and asked them what religion they were. One said Catholic the other said Muslim and the third said Hindu. They were just sitting outside of their house laughing and talking. 

Love you Mom!

Big Guyana Flag

This week was really good. We tried to do lots of contacting. We met lots of people. We met the Ramkaran family. The father is a hindu but converted to Christianity when he married his wife. One of his kidneys failed and the other one is passing some stones so he isn't supposed to work too much. The mother started going to different churches 5 times a week and read the bible every single day looking for a miracle. She got a nervous breakdown instead. She completely quit providing for her family putting more of a load on her husband. He is very frustrated and they don't go to church as much but they haven't given up on God yet. I hope they allow the restored gospel to bless their lives and repair their family. Too many broken families here. 
On a more happier note we are teaching a lady named Savitri! She is a Hindu lady but is very kind and sweet to us. We taught her about the Restoration and she really enjoyed it and participate in the lesson lots. You could just see the holy spirit fill her as she began to understand and committed to pray to see if Joseph Smith is a prophet. We also met more Venezuelans this week but they weren't too interested in hearing our message. Very kind though. Well it was really good to hear from everyone. 
Oh and also next Monday we have zone conference which means I won't be emailing until Tuesday

Well we had a big Guyana flag and a Guyana hat so we put two and two together and took some sweet pictures! Oh and that's a pomegranate tree outside of our house.

Baptism

Hey!
Everything has been great! I loved Skyping home! 
This week we visited Brigette every single day preparing her for the baptism. She is the sweetest lady ever. The baptism went great and President King (Branch President) was there only a half hour after the baptism was supposed to start. Not bad considering he had to perform it. People have a hard time being on time for baptisms for some reason. When we call asking where they are, they always tell us we'll be there just now. Just now means it will be a while. But the baptism was great and she came to church the next day for the confirmation and it went very well. We have been working lots with Sultan. He brought his little nephew with him to church this Sunday. He is such a good guy. He is probably one of the kindest persons I have ever met. I am so excited for him and his baptism!


 Here is a big green grasshopper that decided to come to the church for Brigette's baptism

Baptism on Saturday

Hey! 

This week has been really good. We have been teaching Sulttan about the commandments and so far he is willing to live them. He has set a goal to quit smoking by May 10th! One month before he is baptized! He still hasn't missed church as well! 
Great news! Bridget is getting baptized on Saturday!!!! We have been working really hard with her and helping her understand the importance of the Priesthood. After the first time she came to church her Pastor at the church she normally attends chastised her and told her not to go any more or to be baptized into our church. After that experience she told us she wanted to put her baptism on hold and that she wasn't sure she would come to our church but now she understands why she needs to come to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and be baptized by someone holding the Priesthood authority. She is converted. We went and visited her last night and she said while selling in the market in Wales a lady there approached her and told her to stop visiting with us because we are secret agents and once we baptized her we are going to kill her and throw her in a trench behind the church. She told us how sorry she felt for that lady and said she then rebuked her in the name of Jesus Christ and how you have to rebuke people sometimes. She is awesome! then when we started emailing we got a phone call from her saying her daughter wants to be baptized on Saturday too but we haven't taught her so we will have to explain that she needs to be taught all of the lessons first and come to church.Oh and uh my camera broke...  So i need to buy a new one here and the only places that takes bank cards from outside of Guyana is Scotia Bank so I might be pulling out a lot of money here. 

Here is a couple of pictures I was able to snap before my camera broke.




Anyways Love you lots!

Transfer time....or not?

Hi!

Transfer calls were on Friday. It was exciting because I have been here in Vreed En Hoop for 6 months and lots of companionship's have been in their areas for a long time so we were expecting lots of changes and moving around. I had no clue where I was going to go. The phone rang on Saturday morning to give us our transfer calls and Elder Hunt the assistant to the President says "Where do you think you going?" I said "I don't know I literally can go any where but I'm going to guess Linden" He says "Not bad your pretty close, your going to Vreed En Hoop!" Yup I survived 5 transfers here but I'm happy because I love it here! There was almost no changes in Guyana. I am really excited to stay here because that means I will be able to see what happens to our investigators! 

This week was really good. We met another Venezuelan family while contacting. There are lots of Venezuelan people fleeing to Guyana. They are really nice and accepting to the missionaries despite much of the language barriers we are facing right now. The first family we found we taught them the Restoration this week. It went very well and one of the daughters started to open up to us and ask lots of really good questions. The mother speaks the best English so the message was able to get across. When we were on our exchange with Elder Carrilo last week after we had taught them he recorded the first vision for us in Spanish. We first recited it in English for them and then played it in Spanish and the spirit was so strong while it played in Spanish. It was defiantly inspired that Elder Carrilo came on an exchange with us that day. 

Our phone kept randomly turning off this week and so we had to go to Georgetown this week so that we could meet the Georgetown Zone leaders to deliver a phone from the office to us. They also happened to have a Spanish Book of Mormon in their apartment. No one in our zone had one and the mission office didn't have one either and so we didn't know how we were going to get them one. Apparently they are ordering a whole bunch of them because lots of companionship's have been asking for them but it takes forever for supplies to get to Guyana. Things have just been working with them. Oh and Sultan is still keeping his word and hasn't missed church since his incident. His baptismal date is set for June 10 and I am really happy because I should still be here for it!

Here is a picture of me and Sultan and of it raining outside of the church.




Anyways that's it!

One productive week

This week was really good for us. It was one of our most productive weeks. We had zone conference and after Elder Carrillo the AP came with us on an exchange. The night he was with us happened to also be the night we visited the Venezuelan family and so it was so nice to have someone who could speak and teach in Spanish. it was a very spiritual lesson because there was no language barrier between us. The next few days following we did our best to fill our time wisely and we were able to teach more people and contact more people. We visited Sultan this week and he had a big gash on his head and a bunch of stitches. We asked him what had happened and he said that last Sunday after work he got in an argument with some kid and the kid picked up a piece of wood and smashed it on his head. he told us that he realizes that if he was at church that this would have never happened and he promised us he wouldn't miss church again no matter if he had work or not. So far he has been true to his word hence he was at church yesterday. Then Bridget. We have been trying to get her to come to church and she kept making excuses but this week as we were getting ready for church she gave us a call and said "Hey when are you leaving for church? My husband and I are going to give you a ride." She is awesome! 
That was my week.

Oh and the heat. it is very hot I'm not exactly what the temperature has been but i assure you it is very hot. I am very used to it now. I don't sweat as much as I used to but of course I still sweat a lot. Everyone sweats a lot here. I am pretty used to it. When we get into the apartment we crank on the A/C and I like to just stand under it and blow on my face for five minutes. Its great. I love A/C sooo much. 

On Easter here in Guyana everyone goes out and fly's kites and so we all bought kites and went and flew them on our P day last week after we emailed.  There is a sunset and then  a picture of the fishman's truck. We met the Alligatorman, the Duckman, but we haven't contacted the Fishman yet just rode past him a few times.

Easter

Hey so this week was pretty cool. We met lots of cool people this week. First I will start with an investigator we met last week. Her name is Patricia. She is a very nice and sweet older lady. We taught her about the restoration last week and after teaching her about the restored church she said she thought she was going on the right track but now she is not sure and committed on praying if Joseph Smith was a true prophet. Her understanding of the lesson was above most that we teach. When we came back this week to follow up she said she had no answer but no worries because in the Trinidad Port of Spain mission we teach the restoration in three parts. First: God is our Loving Heavenly Father. Second: The restoration/first vision which includes gospel dispensations and the apostasy and thirdly: the Book of Mormon. So we were on lesson three this week, The Book of Mormon. She was very interested when explaining it and said she was excited to read it! She understood how she would be able to receive an answer to her prayers by reading.

 Back to meeting lots of people this week. We first met Tyson. Tyson is a very Religious man who's wife recently passed away and is still morning over her death. We shared with him a plan of salvation pamphlet and have started teaching him the Restoration lessons. he understands them but doesn't at the same time. its really confusing. Then later this week we were contacting and the very first house we were about to contact calls us over. Lots of kids there and they were all speaking Spanish. Turns out they had just moved there three weeks ago from Venezuela in order to live a happier and safer life. The mom is part Guyanese and speaks very good English. I can actually understand her better than most of the Guyanese. They were really friendly to us. The mom said she was Muslim and her husband who wasn't there is a Hindu but they love Christians a lot and are excited for us to start teaching them. I'm really excited to start teaching them!

Easter! Remember how I told you every Sunday is considered a holiday in Guyana. Same thing applies with Easter so here they have Easter Monday instead of Easter Sunday. Luckily we were able to get an email shop open today but all the missionaries are here too making it a little slow. 
My favorite Christlike attribute would have to be virtue because you gotta have virtue to have the spirit.

Anyways thats all I got!
