March 7 new comp!

Hello everyone! This week was awesome! Just last night, we sat with
sister d and her husband again to discuss marriage with brother
H. Brother d not only agreed to get married in April but
also brought someone new to the lesson for us to teach! It almost
seemed to good to be true! It went really well and the friend he
brought, ' m,' wanted a blessing for his broken foot which brother
H gave him. We had a couple good experiences this week but
that one definitely stood out to me. Our new branch mission leader,
rais abankie, a recently returned missionary who just served in the
netherlands, has also been super helpful to us this week as well. He
is helping us plan a big missionary themed fireside we're planning on
holding this week to get members more excited about missionary work
and I think it's going to go over really well! We also did a really
cool service project for a family in the branch as a part of the new
"self-reliance" initiative the church has been emphasizing down here.
We planted a humongous garden for them on their property and it looked
great! A lot of the members knew some good things about gardening and
it was really nice. Almost forgot, the craziest part, I'm getting a
new companion!! Elder Geigenmiller, a newbie to suriname, is coming in
on wednesday night! I couldn't be more excited, he's already been
trained in guyana while he waited for his visa, but is still a
relatively new missionary. so it should be a good time! I love and
miss you all and I hope you have a great week!

here's the worst road in suriname! (that's on pavement) It's on the
way to the jungle to pick up the elders in Uitkijk.
Here's a picture of the garden we helped plant, this was about halfway
through and there were two more of those squares we set up.
