July 25 we have a runner!!

Hey everyone! I'm actually in the city today on the computer because
we have an activity with the other missionaries today. The jungle
continues to suit me very well I'll be honest. I have been having a
blast this past week with Elder Hardy. He's a great missionary and I'm
grateful to be with him during the last weeks of my mission. I have
been doing a lot of biking, and Elder Hardy has finally convinced me
to go running with him in the mornings hahah so we've been getting
into pretty good shape! At the beginning of church yesterday we had a
grand total of 6! hahah but after awhile a couple families came in and
we had about 20 or so. It was so funny sitting in an almost empty room
when the branch president got up and started the meeting, but that's
just how it goes here in Uitkijk. We helped a lady in a village stamp
some material so that she could make some pots out of it. That's her
whole profession pretty much, then she goes to the city to sell them.
We also taught a less active who has a pet monkey that is the exact
same one from night at the museum! It even looks exactly the same it
was pretty sweet. When me and Elder Hardy go running we run to a
bridge by the apartment and it's super beautiful from up there. I love
this area a ton. There are a lot of stressful things that come with
it, mainly just how far away everything and everyone is. But i've
enjoyed having such a beautiful area and teaching such humble people.
I hope that this finds you all well and that you have a great week!
Elder Carpenter
