A dangerously acute account of 18 months in Nicaraguan Territory.
I seriously feel like my life is a comic strip with my new companion! Here are a few of this week’s funnies:
*We were given a delicious Jicaro drink (it’s milk with sugar and crushed up orgeat seed). Upon tasting it, my companion’s face lit up and she loudly exclaimed, “This drink is like a candle!”
* We saw the Elders walking away from us on the street. She commented, “Hey, it’s us, but a guy version.” So true!
* We finally finished all the day’s work at about 10:15 p.m. When we had prayed to finish our planning, she quickly grabbed her tang filled water bottle and exclaimed “To Life! To Life! Laheym!” (See play “Fiddler on the Roof”)
* She was really nervous about contacting, so we decided to practice…with the trees. They totally accepted a baptismal date ;)
There were so many other wonderful moments and I’m so grateful that I’m the one who got to be her companion.
If I’m not wrong, Thanksgiving should be somewhere around this date, so I would like to express my gratitude for a few things in particular.
There are so many more things to be grateful for: beans & rice, technology, the scriptures, fortune cookies, living prophets, and so much more. Obviously, the number one thing would be Jesus Christ. I’m grateful for His Atoning sacrifice and His infinite love. Now, may all of us take these immense ‘gratitudes’ that we each have and channel them into ACTION. May they fill our minds with Heavenly inspiration and ideas in how we may help in the Lord’s work, perhaps making someone else grateful for this gospel which we share!
Corn pudding...you would love it!
