A struggle is I caught a cold and so I was still able to work but pretty miserable. I had a lot of congestion, trouble sleeping, and a bit of achey fever in the day. Its all good, I'm mostly over it now. A next struggle we had was our car battery died and after getting it jump started three times at different places in our day, we decided that it was not catching the charge and needed replacing. That process took a long time and we missed like 3 appointments, which sucked.
I'm re-accustomed to driving here, it took a few days though. Tobago is a bit trickier to drive in that Trinidad, the roads are smaller, and there are more curves in the roads. We honestly pass by other cars just inches away quite often. Driving back home is going to be easy!
The James family is still doing great, and we are doing some of that awesome member work with them. Not much more news with them...
I got a scary email today from the misson office asking for my preference of what airport I will fly to and for my family's email for SLC to email them the flight itinerary. I will be home February 26th, thats official now. Kinda freaked me out. I'm working just as hard, if not harder, but I am getting really excited. Elder Little is going to have to put up with me with that...
One last story this week, we were having lunch on Sunday and we got a call from a lady who said she was at the church and wanted to meet with us. We were super excited, because people practically never call us here, so we wrapped up our lunch ASAP and ran to the church. We were greeted by a lady who started ranting off about how she had this "crucifix" to give us, and all this stuff about spiritual kings and queens, races, and some other mad stuff. At one point she stopped the conversation to go and pick some flowers behind the church that she saw and wanted "because they helped heal her head from the cut she got on it" Anyways after a long time of her ranting she finally got to the point how she felt impressed to give us this cross pendant, and she went off behind the church to unpin it form her underwear (thats where she kept it) and come and give it to us. she was going to give it to me at first, but at the last second gave it to E. Little. She also gave us the flowers she picked, on accident I think but its hard to tell with insane people. It's bizarre. Anyways heres a pic of the crucifix, its was a funny story, and all ended ok as we got away and left.
Thats all for the week, until next time!
