Rob is now officially at the half-way point in his mission. Was there a burning of ties? Only he knows, but from the pictures he sent, he is enjoying his time serving in Grenada. Here are his notes and a few pictures from today:
"Mi madre! Doing well, having lots of fun out here in Grenada as you can see. lol The bush is so crazy!!!! haha A lot of people here have lost their minds (plenty crazy people). Ya, it's kinda funny how people will have pretty much nothing and then a super nice TV and computer and smart phones. It's like, 'huh?' lol. The food here is good! Lots of fish considering Gouyave has the #1 fishing spots in all of Grenada. Every Friday they have this 'ting' called Fish Friday, where all the locals set up a bunch of stands on Friday night and just sell different fish meals and such. I only got to go once because we did trade offs last Friday, but it was really good! And fun, too. That's cool that we have all these people leaving on missions though! Lots of work to be done. I was thinking about it the other day, how God really doesn't need missionaries, you know? Like, He could just do it all on His own? I feel like it's a combination of it being for other people and for ourselves, you know? Like for us to grow and learn. Which I have immensely. But ya, I was just thinking about that the other day. That's cool that the sisters are still going over to see Nana. I bet she has a lot of fun seeing you guys on the weekends though, so that's nice. But things here are good, just trying to figure things out slowly. The group here needs a lot of work so we just need to buckle down and get it done. But just know I love you and am excited to see you in a year. Bye!
