I am sure that to those who know me this comes as no surprise. But I find myself eating a lot of peanut butter and jam. Our cooking supplies are limited and time to cook when we get home is also limited, and it just takes to long, so I eat peanut butter most every night for dinner. I should probably find some other stuff, and I am planning to, but still, I love peanut butter and jam. And it is so easy, just make it, eat it and go study Pearl of Great Price till bed time.The people out here are super superstitious. They believe in Ju Ju an mermaids and all this stuff that makes me think of the Twilight Zone. They are afraid of everything that goes bump in the night. I just tell them that it isn't real. They look at me like I am nuts, and they all say one day something will change my mind, but I don't think so. I say it is a lot of smoke and mirrors. It is funny when members are freaked out by it to, just the mention of a mermaid in the dark freaks my companion out. It is kind of funny.
I love the people we are teaching out here. I really care for them. Speaking of care for and prayers, could you keep the Nyumtora family in your prayers? They are a recent convert family and they have a son who is very sick, has been for a while and is now in a hospital, and they are in need of prayers. Please. I would really appreciate it.The area is doing great, like I said, baptisms are happening, and there are people to teach, and things are just Bho. I love it. And I am picking up more and more Shona. Probably wont ever be fluent, but I can understand most of the lesson material in Shona and say some few things. It is a fun language, but tough.
My companion is learning the area really well, and the people really like him. Smart guy, and a great teacher. But still the mermaid thing, I just find it odd. But we are getting a long really well, and things are sweet out here in Chegutu.
