Week 101

Christmas was awesome!! I'm just going to send a bunch of pictures cuz it takes a while...

Here are some of the kids we gave gifts to, me wrapping some gifts, Christmas party at our ward, and some dinners members shared with us. It might have been the fullest I've ever been in my life, it seriously hurt to walk afterwards.

We also had a Christmas party just for missionaries with both the Praia and Assomada zones combined, I finally saw Mcmullin! He's up in Assomada. I took pics with him but they're in my camera, all these pics are from Nevilles camera so I'll send them next week.

Week 100

I will start Skyping at 6 here in the Verde, so that'll be like what, 12 or 1 over there? So that's settled.
Man, I'm super excited to call you guys this week. I'm also gonna be skyping Burch and Chevy haha so I'm excited for them too.
I actually bought a bunch of gifts already for the Santa thing, I made a deal with a Chinese lady at the store so if I bought like more than 20 toys I have like a 40% off on everything so I only spent like 30 bucks, but I can always buy more. There are so many kids here in Praia that could use them, it's really sad cuz there are also really rich people living in the same streets.
I go home in 8 weeks... it's depressing but super exciting at the same time. I really want to work hard these last few weeks, but I"m just really tired lol. So the "get Zuniga sexy" program didn't run too smoothly because we fasted for an investigator and I got a sore throat during the same day, so it made me feel super weak for a couple of days, but we are back on track now. I'm going to be working out as much as I can so I don't get made fun of that much by everyone lol.

Week 99

So this week was really normal for me too, nothing exciting happened to be honest, except Neville and I have started the "get Zuniga sexy before he goes home" program. We went running in the morning a few times and I worked out inside on days we don't run. But just some info about Neville, he was like training professionally for track in some university that I can't remember. He runs a mile in like 4.35 minutes, which is like twice as fast as I am lol, so he's giving me a freaking good workout. We run for 15 minutes then take a 1 minute break then run another 15 minutes and freak does that suck. I feel like I'm gonna die the last 3 minutes.
Also, we have been working a ton with some awesome investigators but they all have like super hard problems they need to get over, like getting married, beating black tea addictions, and having to quit a job so they can make it to church. One of them is Dinis, he's from Guinea Bissao and he has been drinking black tea every day since he was 12. Right now he's in his early 20's and it's really tough for him but he's been progressing a ton and showing some true desire to change. He has a baptism date for the 26th so please pray for him so he can get over his addiction!

Week 98

I don't have much to say this week. Praia is awesome, monkeys are cool, baptisms are the best, and it's dope having other missionaries always pretty close by!
I only have 10 weeks left! It's super hard not to get trunky. Praia is way different from Assomada, there are so many people here that are always home and willing to talk, it's not hard at all finding new investigators or teaching lessons, but there are a ton of parties and stuff kinda like in Mindelo. I believe there are 16 duplas (missionary companionships) all around the city.
My comp is awesome, we get along great, but we are way different. He absolutely loves like church activities back home like EFY and stuff, and well... I didn't lol.
