August 17

Hello and greetings from your favorite south american missionary,
there are some cool things to report on this week, namely the fact
we've gotten five new missionaries in the country! 3 elders and 2
sisters came in sometime around wednesday night. From what I can tell
so far I really like all of them and I think they're going to be a
great addition and strength to us here. Every single set of elders in
the north zone is training this transfer which is pretty crazy, and so
our thoughts have begun to turn to a younger generation and making
sure they adapt comfortably and learn everything they have to about
being a missionary! It's been really fun to get new people and the
branch is excited about it as well, speaking of which I just gave a
talk yesterday that I had kind of forgotten about until the last
minute! I only got one notice and with how busy our schedule is I
totally forgot until we were actually in the church building, hahah. I
thought winging talks was difficult enough as is but to do it in dutch
is a whole nother story! hahah But in all honesty I think it went well
and a few people came up to me and said it was good so I took
confidence in that at least, hahah. In other news our area got broken
up since elders came back into paramaribo last transfer, and we lost
almost all of our investigators to them :( but it's how the boundaries
used to be before sisters came no one expected them to leave this
transfer though, but it's okay. it just means we'll have to spend some
time building up our teaching pool this transfer which will be no
problem for us. Anyways I think that's about it this week I don't have
a lot of time since this cyber cafe is closing early for some reason,
but i miss you guys and I'll talk to you again next week!
