So hello again everyone. I'm pretty sure I haven't been able to go a week yet without craziness happening to me.
Just for an update our investigator that went to the hospital is still there. She unfortunately hasn't been improving. The missionaries all fasted for her on thursday and then the branch fasted on sunday. It was a great experience...we are still wiaiting and hoping.
Our cuban friend is doing very well. He is planning on being baptized on sunday and we are excited for him. Just got a few more things to get ready before sunday!
Really not alot happened this whole week other than saturday. Saturday we decided to go down to The nether regions of our area (which took us an hour and half to drive to) and work. We went down and met with a great member of the church down in Fairfield who fed us some awesome carolina bbq and just really good stuff.
This area was really cool because Fairfield is right on the edge of lake Mattamuskeet, which is the largest natural lake in NC. It is HUGE. But the area is also super redneck haha. we saw a mailman riding on a riding lawnmower delivering mail. hahaha. Lots of swamp, and apparently nutria are out here as well? I thought they only had those nasty things in oregon...
But after we worked a little in fairfield we travelled across this huge natural land bridge through the middle o the lake which was cool. We went down to this little town called Swan Quarter, which is right on the Pamlico sound, and has a ferry that goes from Swan Quarter to Ocracoke. That trip is 2 1/2 hours on a ferry. We didn't go, but we wanted to...haha. Then we decided to go up the left side of our area and come back home that way, but my companions GPS was set to shortest distance route, which will most ofhe time take you on dirt roads and back roads and whatnot. So I swear, we got so lost I'm surprised we even made it home. I'm pretty sure at one point we accidently left our mission and went just barely into the raliegh mission. Ridiculous day...over 200 miles worth of travel. Crazy!
Anyways...besides that we really didn't have anything too exciting happen this week. Easter was great, we ate dinner with a great group of members here.
Also. I found a turtle on p-day. :D (picture)
Anyways hope y'all have a sweet week. I'll talk to y'all next week!
