Everyday is still mostly the same here. Anywhere else I'd get so tired of doing the same thing over and over again but somehow I'm still having fun. A lot of people complain about the food here but I've been grubbin. I usually eat 2 servings plus some sides and somehow I've still lost 2 lbs. Guess I need to enjoy having a high metabolism while it lasts. Hopefully I don't lose too much weight in Africa haha. Getting an hour of exercise time helps with that too. Most days I tell Elder Ollerton I wish we were allowed to dunk in the gym. Last Thursday he said if he makes the next 3 pointer I have to dunk and he drained it. I'm sorry mom but I broke the rules and dunked. I've repented though so hopefully I'm good
Its been another interesting week with Elder Ayaji. Its interesting learning about another culture. He's been calling Elder Hopkins "playboy" because apparently in Nigeria it means a diligent young man. We've tried to explain what it means here but he keeps using it. We also taught him how to use shampoo and it was the funniest thing ever. A couple times he asked us if we we're trying to kill him.
We started TRC this week (teaching lessons to people other than our teachers). We taught 2 lessons in Portuguese and 2 in English. Needless to say the English ones went way better. We we're able to teach Audrey about prayer and the infinite power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. As I was teaching I could feel the love that God and Jesus Christ have for her and I can't wait to share that with the people of Cape Verde.
"And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent." Mosiah 3:17 I know that taking full advantage of the Atonement of Jesus Christ is the only way that we can return to our God and I'm so thankful for His sacrifice.
Hope yall have a great week!Elder Bennett
