So, today I really have no time. The electricity was out most of the day and I couldn't get on the internet till late. I think they only turn on the electricity at night when people don't need it. Haha. So annoying sometimes. Sorry, this email is going to be short. Just a few highlights,
1. General Conference was incredible! I had to translate a few talks for Jewels and it was soooo hard to do that. Yikes! I still got some good spiritual juice but I'll have to watch it again so I can focus on just what is being said. I really like the talk about choosing a scripture every week and then pondering it and take it to heart for that week! Love it!!! I also loved Elder Holland's talk as well! Love you mommy :)
2. Street contacting has never been my favorite. I used to think it was pointless because we just run into too many drunks but we gave it another shot after the zone leaders recommended doing it. The first guy we talked to invites us in and is searching for the true church! BAM!
3. We filled Mamy Niainas baptism record and she wants to get baptized on the 20th. They will get married on the 19th! We already have the invitation! We will move Christoffe and Niry a day back and have a 4-baptism day! BAM!
4. WORK JUST ROCKS!!!
Sorry to cut this way short but gotta go save the world ya know! Byeee! Bisous bisous!

This is Patrique, one of the ward members. I just love this guy. He served a mission in his home country. He just opened a restaurant here and so we went to his opening. It's a nice American restaurant that he opened right next to the embassy. One of his workers came up to me and said, "Hey, you the son of Mo' Bettah!" Haha. They surprised me. I had told Patrique about my dad's restaurants back home and he's been telling others and showing them the website. I thought that was way funny.

This is a steak sandwich with a side of fries. It is pretty good! It's about a $3 meal with a drink.
Elder Kissi from Ghana. He's my brother. Elder Hammer trained him.
