Its crazy to think that so many people from home are coming and going on missions. It goes so fast too. All the days seem to blend into one!
Another sunrise in Salone
So I guess its strange to email you on a Wednesday. We had a national holiday here on Monday so the internet cafe was not open and the shops all closed. Its called prayer day (Ramadan). All the muslims go to the mosque to pray one last time while fasting. They fast for 30 days (they can eat after 7pm until sunrise). So we taught a lot of people about prayer and we also watched a few church restoration films. Usually we can't watch films because there isn't any light (electricity) but because it was prayer day, the electricity was turned on and everyone had light. It was actually a problem. I have never had to ask a person to turn off the TV to start a lesson. The TV's are really distracting. I am not used to having them around. I would not do well in the US where everywhere you go is something distracting to look at... hahah it was an interesting day! You could hardly find people in the street because everyone was inside watching films.
Elder Vinson from the quorum of the 70's came and talked to us yesterday, that was super sweet, he's from Australia.
|After the service project, they gave us a lot of food. Even though 8 of us ate, we couldn't finish it!|

|We went visiting teaching with Sister Turray. She is one of my favorite members in Wellington. She always gives us food, when her own family struggles to eat.|
Next week I should be transferred, I have been here a really long, so we will see where I'm going next. Hopefully not too far, I like this place. Also, when you leave an area, you are likely to never see these people again in your life, so its not easy!
Well I have long life and well body.
