November 2 letters

To Mom:
So this week was kinda uneventful. We get some good work done with documents and found some really cool new families but really nothing crazy that I can tell the story of.
On Saturday we took that kid who was eating the pancake to a restaurant for his birthday. He has never eaten at a restaurant in his entire life. The majority of the kids never have. It was pretty crazy. They have done so many things for the first time in their lives with us. For example, take a shower in a shower, eat a hamburger and various other foods, use a toilet, eat pie or lemon bars or any other kind of desert, cook on a real stove and much more.
Also, this week we went to the most expensive restaurant in Chimoio it cost like 30 bucks or so. I got these pretty good giant prawns.

Also, this week one of the member's house burned down so we did a service project to clean the house up to rebuild. Because all of the walls are built of blocks just the roof burned with the stuff inside but the walls are all good. So we cleaned up inside to get it ready to put on a new roof. 
To Dad:
So this week I was able to organize with some of the leaders home teaching and visiting teaching. This week I have to make 5 or 6 trainings to train the leaders of the branch. We will be going to the church every morning this week probably so that I can make prezis to train the leaders. It should help out but it is kindof a pain in the butt arranging all the quotes, reading the material in the church handbooks, finding appropriate scriptures and stuff but I think it will be worth it. Also, I've been training the branch secretary a ton so that he can do the necessary work after I leave. It's a lot of work.
