We were supposed to have lots of investigators come to church last sun but none did. Lots = expected 10
Two of the people that we set on date we have found out they have seemingly hollow "yes"'s . . . They will never answer the door when we know they are home and they will never follow through with any of the commitments they have promised to do. Looks like they don't have real intent to be baptized... It makes me very sad to see that. However we did get another on date. I might have told you before though. One lady is on date for Feb 11! And there are several more that are really really close to making that commitment. Our zone has been doing a very good job at helping people progress towards baptism. We have 92 people on date for the beginning of Feb from our zone alone that we have set starting at the beginning of this month.
We have had lots of food that is not normal food in the last week. We had crab that we cooked. I took a picture of them when they were still alive after they were steamed and dead and after I had cracked them open to eat their guts! It was fun to dissect them and pick out the meat even though I don't like it very much or there wasn't much meat on them. Joshua would have enjoyed that meal a lot.
Missionaries get to eat the best food of everybody! Best = normal meal at table and sometimes something a little extra like dessert.
It's really weird to see all of the missionaries prepare to go home in a couple of weeks and two months as I have just gotten out to the field. I can tell that home has gotten to them.
