We had divisions again this week, I was with a buddy from the CCM , Elder Curtis! It was fun to work with him for a while. One of the members gave me a banana and I played with it the whole day and used it to make weird examples of things we were teaching haha. Its kinda fun to stretch your mind into making something work as an example. So the city government here has been protesting for a few weeks, because they haven't been paid in over 6 months! All the workers showed up every day and just sat outside the building and refused to work. We walked by after divisions and there was about 10 military police outside the building and all the workers were gone That's one way to end a protest. I guess they figured out a contract where they got paid for 2 months right away and a schedule for the other months. I would be mad too though if it took 6 months to get paid haha. We had a baptism, her mom didn't give permission for last Saturday but we were able to show her how much her daughter has changed in the past few months so she said yes. ha so yesterday I met a lady that is 107 years old! She was drinking coffee and watching a television sermon haha. We teach Sunday school every week, and I gave a talk last week in church. This branch is pretty small, but there's still enough happening here.
Have a great week everyone
Love Elder Gardner
so the guy on the end in this picture is Hermano Stell. He used to be a preacher in a baptist church but was converted maybe 2 years ago. He teachers elders quorum every week and he still teaches like a baptist haha. Hes super funny though and helps us a lot with the work.
