Not Much To Say - Post from June 12

 Transfer call #11.5:
When Sister Saint Laurent flies back home on Monday, Sister Harwood will come down from Munich and serve here with me, since her current comp is a visa waiter.

Notable Notes 
  • a guy refused to take a card from us because he said the real Jesus has blood-red eyes and since the painting of Jesus on our card had brown eyes that discredited anything we could try to teach him 
  • Hospital visits woot woot
  • Sometimes we go on hunts to visit people and then we get there and realize they are 80% likely dead 
  • Sometimes people drop the missionaries and it breaks the missionaries' hearts
  • We were in this quiet middle-of-nowhere village when suddenly we heard The Neighborhood blasting out of an open window and I about died, I just had to stop in my tracks and hear my high school music 
  • These two guys approached us on a bench and were bummed that we couldn't come party with them. We asked them to teach us something in Arabic and what does he decide to teach us? but the one word I already happened to know: habibi. That is the Arabic equivalent of pet names like "baby" or "honey". 
  • On the plus side, they pinky promised us to try partying without cigarettes or alcohol
  • We had a street display. How fun it is when people come up to you! Even better is when they see a Book of Mormon in their obscure native language (like Igbu) on the table.
  • It's no longer uncommon for me to see people walking their cats
  • Grandpa, I went into the Istanbul Market and tried a Turkish Delight for you
  • Our ward is seriously FANTASTIC and we can always rely on them to support us in the work or even to just be friends to build us up!

Mosiah 4:9 - Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.
Remember, my friends, it's God who has the Birdseye Perspective!
