Thursday we were supposed to go Christmas caroling with the branch but then it started to rain and so they canceled it and we were sad.
Friday we had the Branch Christmas party and we got there and saw our name was on the program for a musical number so after the opening prayer was said we grabbed a hymn book and chose to sing away in a manger. It was pretty sweet.
Got lots of food. Well this is the best picture I got of the christmas party but its good. Its the primary doing the nativity and there's Ravendra as Joseph in the back! He is a pretty sweet kid.
Saturday we got a ride with Elder and sister Haake the senior couple in Berbice who also happen to live in our area. They took us over to Rosignal (Elder Hanni's old area) so we could participate in the baptism of the Nerine family it was really cool. Elder Hanni and Elder Bigler my old companion in diamond found them one night and started teaching them. First Brother Terry was baptized and then his wife and then his son. we baptized them in a trench not too far from the church there. It was really cool. Random people were there and after each one was baptized we clapped. Brother Terry stayed in the water the whole time and after he was baptized he started swimming around. After when we walked back to the church he said "Before I was baptized I weighed 290 pounds but now I feel like 90 pounds" it was a really neat experience for all of us there
Just some of the area around where the baptism happened.
Sunday we had lots of fall through lessons and Monday it was Christmas. It started raining really hard since Christmas and they are getting there semi annual flooding. Its pretty sweet. Its not too bad though. We are teaching a really sweet lady named sister Allison. she works at the New Amsterdam hospital as security and works every night from 10pm to 7am. Then she has to sleep here and there through out the day. She is really kind though. We finished teaching her the 3rd lesson in the Plan of Salvation about life after death and I don't think I have ever taught some one who was so grateful to find out where we go after this life. Her inspired answer for that lesson was "He gave us a chance to make a choice" she is really cool and she has a baptismal date for Feb 10th. we just need to get her to church now. Its pretty hard when you get off work at 7am but she says she will come.
