So the last few Sundays I have bought cheesecake and made a district dessert for Sunday night while we listen to my old conference talks, this week was the same, but I'll be happy to get some new old talks -haha.
Tuesday we went to a district meeting in another district then our own, just to see how things were going there. We had to give a small instruction, but their district leader there really gave a stellar lesson (maybe just because we were present ha, no he is a great guy.) It gave me a chance to socialize more with the missionaries around. I'm still the new guy, but old guy at the same time.
Thursday as we were beginning our studies I noticed more ants running on our desk than normal. They had a trail leading to the window sill and I smashed a bunch right there and suddenly a good number came out. So I ran and got some spray we had and after a quick blast there were thousands pouring out under the window! We jumped back and moved the desks. My comp and I proceeded to fight a great struggle against the bugs and the battle waxed exceedingly sore- for the ants. Well great was the slaughter and soon we had a massive pile of chemical soaked ant bodies under the window. We finished studies in the front room.
We have had a big focus on teaching and finding families this transfer. Elder Gherkins and I have been doing our best and we are seeing the blessing from it. The area has revealed good people including the "chief" of our district (there old tribe ways, but he is still very important in the community.)
Sunday I had a good study with the book “Jesus the Christ”; it really had me thinking about Pilate and how much he tried to save Christ (as an innocent man) but yet yielded to the people and gave the order and about the man who helped Christ with his cross. I wonder really where these two people are today.
Well time is up but these were the adventures of Elder Ray this past Easter week. Looking forward to some baptisms this Saturday so keep us in your prayers. Loved the pictures of the Passover meal - more on that next week.
