But anyway, the weekly news. I had a sick experience earlier this week.
On Tuesday, I went on splits with Hamm. It was my first time every being the senior comp, even though it was just a split. I was pretty nervous, because I wasn't gonna have anyone to help me out if I got confused or couldn't understand. Me and Hamm are buds though, I told him that if he didn't understand, I probably wouldn't either ha.
We went out to our first time, it was a new investigator. So we did a get to know her and told her about what we do, and just my luck, she had a ton of questions. I know for a fact that God was helping me out, because my understanding was way better that day than I feel like it usually is. I was able to answer random questions she had right off the bat about life after death, spirit world, etc. The same thing happened in our next lessons. On the way home, a guy asked about the church and I was able to have a conversation with him for like 20 minutes about a bunch of stuff he was curious about. I was so freaking stoked, I never get a chance to talk to people like that.
I've been praying like crazy ever since I got here for understanding and confidence. I definitely got it that day. And on the way home, some people tried selling us some stuff, and we ended up talking about what we do here, ha, the conversation always ends up there, that's what happens when you're the only white guys for miles. And the lady was like, "You've only been here for three months? You know Malagasy so well, and you guys aren't like other white people, you aren't stuck up and don't get mad at us when we ask questions." Ah man, it was such a good day, I definitely got my valim-bavaka on Tuesday.
