Monday, November 17, 2014

Hello from my new area!  We had a great week.
Monday (P-day)
We went to the other ward and played futsol! It was great playing with the whole zone! After futsol Elder Prayitno and Elder Baize and I went to Block M (it’s a place where they make fake everything) They bought some cool stuff!

The National Monument (Indonesian: Monumen Nasional, abbreviated Monas) is a 132 m (433ft) tower in the center of Merdeka Square, Central Jakarta, symbolizing the fight for Indonesia. It is the national monument of the Republic of Indonesia, built to commemorate the struggle for Indonesian

At the top of Monas


Wish this was the mission car...

This morning Elder Prayitno fell out of bed it was funny but scared us both! 

Today we had a good appt with a guy from an island way far away! I think he is golden. He has a problem with smoking so I told him about how Christ performed miracles with the Priesthood.  I asked him if he believes in that?  He said he did, so I told him we would say a special prayer for him to stop smoking!  We said a prayer and then I asked for his cigarettes so he wouldn't be tempted anymore.  He hasn’t been smoking since ! He is so happy now! I'm looking forward to teaching him more.  Later that night when we came home from working, we met Elder Randy D. Funk of the Quorum of the Seventy and that was really cool! He actually served his mission here in Indonesia! 

We had a special missionary lesson with Elder Funk, Brother John Tanner and Brother Gibson.  It was great!  We all learned a lot and I had to translate for my companion Elder Prayitno.  It was hard because they talk so fast, but challenging and fun to be able to do it! 

We went proselyting then came home cause all the ZL's were coming to Senopati for MLC.
Today we had DDM (Zone Conference).   Later that night I taught English class.   

THEN I GOT A PACKAGE from Leslee :))) Thank you so much It was perfect! I love the book too :) Thank you you’re the best !!! 

Saturday (if you're squeamish skip this paragraph)
I ate monkey.  It’s gross!  If you're ever at a restaurant and they offer you monkey kabobs...just say no!

There are lots of places you can eat cobra.  They even let you pick the one you want.  They will drain the blood into a cup and let you drink it and then fry up the meat.  Haven't tried that one yet...
