Blantyre Malawi!Hi everyone! I am officially in the field! Its been a long journey to get here!
Sunday.. We have church at 8 and then another sacrament meeting at 11 because the area is big so people far away can make it to the classes then sacrament meeting after. We then had an investigator die that day so we went to an 5 hour funeral and they were singing straight for that 5 hours. The funeral was really hard on me emotionally, mentally and physically. But by the time we were going to get in a mini bus it was 6 which is when we are suppose to be in our apartment, so we had a senior couple come and pick us up.
Today we just cleaned our apartment, and went shopping. The American food they have here are lays chips, pringles, and that's it. But I did find one tiny jar of nutella in another store so I bought it on the whim because who knows when I will find that again.The people here are willing to hear about our message. We will just be walking through a village and will be able to go and have 3 full lessons with complete strangers. It might just be because I am a celebrity, especially in our area where there are no white people at all. We are in a very poor area and it is so hard to see what these people live in. But a lot don't have nice furniture or anything but they will have their TV. Funny what is important here!
