I Love This Place!

Man this week was a good week! We have found a lot of cool people and our members are fantastic here! Probably one of my favorite member families is the Phagu's. (Pronounced Paw-goo) But anyway they are the best. Brother Phagu is one of the funniest people I think I have ever met in my entire life. He is a funny man. He is the Young Mens president and he is really focusing on getting the youth on missions. He is a great leader. He is like the Mark Wilcox of this branch. Sister Phagu is the seminary teacher and the youth really like her too. They are really excited about missionary work and have helped us a lot already. We are teaching Brother Phagu's brother Anil right now. He is here from Guyana so that he can earn some money and take it back home to his family. He is also a very funny guy! But yesterday Anil fasted for the whole 24 hours that his family would be open to the gospel because his wife is Hindu to the bone and so I really hope that works out. We haven't gotten super far with teaching him yet but he came to church yesterday and seemed to like it. But he is just a way cool guy so we'll see what happens!
We also get fed by Sister Armstrong 3 times a week. Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday. She gets us our veggies since me and Elder Bechan hardly ever have any! Ha but she is just a crazy funny old lady who speaks with a really strong Bajan accent so I can hardly ever understand what she is saying! Ha but she is cool and can for real cook food.
Yesterday at the end of the day we went to see the Phagu's and talk to them about the fast and we get there and Branch President Alleyne's car is there and were like, "Oh boy this can't be good." But then we go in and Bro. Phagu,.Anil and Pres. Alleyne are just chilling and having a man's movie night. Ha so we obviously had to interrupt that if we were going to stay and talk so they stopped the movie and we talked about a fireside we're going to have to encourage the youth to go on missions. So we all talked about it for about an hour and 15 minutes, even Anil! Ha but then we came up with a plan for the fireside. Elder Bechan and I are both taking part! He is going to share his conversion story and how he decided to go on a mish and I am going to share some mission stories and how it's blessed me. So that will be sweet! I love this branch!
I know that as members take part in the work there is just so much power! So just always remember to do your part and be an example of the believers! I love you all!
