We have survived out first month here in Guyana!!!
It has been quite the adventure!!
We love it here and are adjusting to the climate and driving here!
It is now the rainy season and we love how it just down pours and 10 minutes later it's blue skies and sunny and bright again!!! Now we know why it's so pretty and green here!!
The people are so warm and friendly here and love all the missionaries!! They love unconditionally and accept you so lovingly!!!
The first week our biggest challenge was driving on the left side of the road, on the right side of the car! Totally opposite from home!! I am grateful Elder Poulson does All the driving! I tried it once and decided that was enough!
The members here are very strong in The gospel and very faithful! The church is their whole world!! We love attending institute and having gospel discussions around our little table! Each week we have a few more come and pretty soon we will need a bigger table! Even a few of the children come and sit for 2 hours! I am amazed at how they can do that!
We are grateful for each one of you and your prayers! We truly feel them! It was difficult at first knowing we will miss the birth of our 8th grandchild and many other family activities but The Lord has blessed us and given us extra strength to continue on in our assignment. We love you all and would love your comments!!! We will be posting more soon!!!!
