Feb 22 the Polar Express

Hello everyone! The baptism of 'FD' went through this week
which we were happy about, his older brother 'R,' who is also
preparing for a mission, was able to baptize him and I could tell it
was a really good experience for their whole family. We also held a
contacting activity in Lelydorp, with just the south zone only, and
set up a free lemonade stand! We gave out about 10.5 liters of
lemonade and a whole box full of book of mormons so I'd say it was a
pretty good success! Today for our Pday activity I drove the white van
now nicknamed "The Polar Express" with almost all the missionaries in
Suriname to a place called Overbrug, where we've been once before a
long time ago. It was a great time and the view there is sweet! We
played a lot of volleyball and had lunch up there and it was a great
day. In other news the polar express also got a flat tire a few days
ago and I'm happy to report I replaced it with minimum casualties,
thanks mostly to a wonderfully detailed owner's manual. we met a new
investigator who teaches us srnan tongo as well and so with any luck i
can be a trilingual missionary upon return home! Hahah although there
is no possible way I will ever be able to use this jungle language
again its still cool to have. That's about it but Mi lobi Yu en Mi si
yu backa :)
