This is totally crazy!
Cest Vraiment Bizzare!
Oh my days..... the change the change! The people are different the French is better the transportation is different they even changed the island!!! It is totally crazy! but I love it:) the people are more French influenced and have lighter skin here in Martinique, The French here is more Parisian and I am hoping to improve my accent:) but all is well! I am with Elder Bodily and that is going great! He is a great guy and we are wlaking the world over! Actually we are going to ask and see if we can get bikes for our area!
But in the mean time we are taking these crazy busses! The busses run at all sorts of times and places and sometimes just pass you right up! It is always a litlle crazy trying to finish lessons in time so we dont have to walk about a million miles! The busses here drive super fast and comfort is not a concern, they turn super sharp and are all about the fast lane! when you stand up and hold the top rail I think i feel like a rag doll being thrown from side to side, it is pretty sweet!
With the extra travel time I have lots of time to either One: come up with things to talk about or Two: think about gospel topics or Three: put fallen mangos in the road in hopes you get to see them blown up by cars flying by. I recently started a new goal that I have to memorize one scripture every day, I'm going to try to do it for a whole year! That sounds like a lot right? well it is, but i am pretty determinined to do it!
I read a sweet quote that i want to share by CS Lewis: "you find out how strong a wind is by triing to walk against it not by laying down,... that is why bad people know very little about badness they have lived a sheltered life by always giving in"
I love you all very much and thank you for the many lessons that you have taught me before and on my mission, thank you for the support,
