30 May 2016

So, the most prominent part of the whole week has definitely been the food-lots of it, and most of it really weird. I've been fed chicken liver, chicken feet, pig kidneys, whole fried fish, and a ton of other stuff. Most of it is pretty good (not the liver), but you have to convince yourself to eat it. The weirdest thing I've had is balut. That is where they take a duck egg, let it grow and develop for a while, then boil it and eat it. That was one of the worst things I've ever eaten. It has the texture of styrofoam, and looks like...trash. Inline image 1

We waited the whole week in suspense for transfer calls. That's right, transfer calls 3 weeks after the last ones. This mission and my last one have opposite transfer schedules. So here, we were unsure what was going to happen. Elder Brown was going home for sure, and Elder Nawaia was probably leaving (he's been here for 6 months). That meant I could go to either side of the area, or just plain anywhere in the mission. But, I ended up staying where I was at. 

Apart from that, not much happened. We dropped off Elder Brown for his trunky run- going home. We also spent a lot of time running around the squatters. Funny thing- in India, a squatter is a type of toilet. Here, it's a slum neighborhood. Either way, we spent a lot of time proselyting there. 

That was about it for the week. See ya!
