Week 44

Dear Mother,
Thanks mom. I had the lucky charms today so thank you for those. We don't have an oven so I don't know if that will be possible. Sorry about the short letter last week. I didn't have too much time. My companion is 26 and has been out about 6 months. He has been a member for like 2 years. Yes I have a camera I will send some pictures today hopefully. We use the introduction a lot and usually have them read specific passages. That is a good way to share it talking about the new and old world and helping people to understand its scripture from a different part of the world than the Bible.
2. (How many investigators do you have now?) Not enough. We have been doing so much finding but we haven't found enough serious people but we are definitely working on it. We met some good people this week.
3. (Best contact for the week?) Edna. She is older and has a family. She said she really felt the spirit the first time we taught here so that was good and if think she will really progress.
4. (Best lesson for the week?) Jaures. He is from Ivory Coast and he has been reading the Book of Mormon a lot. But he really likes his church and so hopefully he can have the faith to leave that church.
5. (Best thing you ate this week?) Jollof rice with bananas. So good. We had dinner at a members house. They are Nigerian. So much food. I haven't eaten that much food ever.
The week was good. A lot of finding. We got rejected but it's ok because there are always more people that want to listen to us. But my companion is great. Things are good. have a great week.
Love Elder Thornhill
P.S. oh I almost forgot to say that our house flooded. It was light off and someone left the faucet on in the kitchen so in the middle of the night the power came on and the water started to run. and our drain is spoiled so the water just went on to the apartment floor. So we woke up with about an inch and a half of water in our room at 3 in the morning. We had to sweep it all out of the house and it took about 2 hours. It was a pretty funny experience.
