The Birthday Boy!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! I had a good day. I bought
two rabbits from the patriarch and we buchered them up and slow cooked
them with some vegetables, spices, and barbecue sauce. Then we made
some food from Ivory Coast called "foutou" which is made of (cooked)
mashed up cassava
roots and plantains. All this and drinks for four people, what a meal
for under 20$ huh. The sauce even lasted us the whole following week.
Unfortunately I do not have my camera with me, so I will send the
bunny pictures later.
Well I am still doing okay. We found some more families to teach!
There is a guy named Frank who we met who is a religion researcher guy
who doesn't currently go to a church. Still looking I guess. His wife
is a seventh day adventist but he doesn't agree with the sabbath day
being on saturday, haha, but they are together anyhow and they have
two sons. He reads many historical things and information about
churches and he says that our message about the apostasy is like the
"missing piece" to the puzzle he's been putting together in his mind.
He looks forward to hearing our message about the Restoration.

We helped clean the church on Saturday and we had to cut down a
diseased papaya tree. That was interesting. Everything on a papaya
tree is hollow, the branches the fruit and even the trunk. It came
down easily.

Last Monday we went back to the waterfall in Kpalimé. Same old same
old, but the missionaries were different. I also found a cocoa bean
pod thing on a tree and broke it open to look at the inside. That's
all the excitement there was. The trip down and back was pretty fun
