Sugar Cane

Hi, it sounds like we're having the same weather--RAIN. I absolutely LOVE it, you know me, but everyone here is afraid of the rain. Our church attendance goes down like 40% if its raining.
It started to rain just as we were finishing an appointment with a new member. I wanted to go out and keep teaching, but my comp and the member we were with wanted to wait in the house til it stopped. Well we waited for about 30 mins and I just couldn't help but think the whole time that we should still be out finding and teaching.
I was thinking that they were being silly worrying about getting wet but then I realized that they're  just normal I'm the weird one. HA!

We found out that Olivar is not part of any cult. He doesn't have any secrets. He has a CRAZY past but he is for real and he is gonna get baptized on August 6, long hair or short. On fathers day last month, they gave out little hand towels to all the fathers, and his is pink.He carries that thing everywhere and I just think its so cute. It makes me smile, he's always got it in his hand or hanging out his pocket.

This week discovered a new part of our area, its in the middle of the rice fields at the farthest end of our area. I love going out there, Its just quiet and beautiful. It was the first time I saw pure sugar cane, just growing in our new investigators yard. I asked if I could try and she cut me down a whole big stalk with her machete. I felt pretty cool chewing on that thing.

We take turns teaching the gospel essentials class for investigators and new members at church. Last week was on the sabbath day. Sometimes I forget how different LDS are from the world, but when we teach about the council of our latter-day prophets, that we shouldn't buy on the sabbath, participate in worldly entertainment, etc, etc. I just think, wow, there are TONS of big changes that these people need to make as they become members of the true church of Christ. Growing up in the church I just don't realize that many of the things I have known and done my whole life are completely foreign to them. But it amazes me how many are willing to make those changes and sacrifices. But of course IT MAKES SENSE. Because this is the TRUTH!!!

Anyway, I'm happy, the work is moving along, no drastic changes, all of our baptismal dates are coming to church and growing their testimonies, so its a beautiful life.
I love you
Be good
Dance in the rain
Conquer the enemy of righteousness

p.s. that pic is the sugar cane before you take the skin off. its a cream color inside and instead of swallowing it, you just bite off a piece, chew it and get all the flavor and then spit it back out. That piece I'm holding is only a fourth of what she gave us!
