Still in Togo under the rain

another week in togo



AttachmentsOct 27 (2 days ago)
family, and friends,
another week in hot, humid, rainy Togo. 
This week was really productive. on wednesday i went on splits with Elder Potter, i learned a new teaching style with him, and got to meet with some members ive never met before. Elder Potter and i get a long great. we have similar personalities, and sense of humor. i've learned so much about the african culture with him, and its awesome. He showed me a vodo shrine that we found on the beach, and a self proclaimed vodo house thats in his secteur. On the way back to the apartment, we stopped at a fufu bar and got fufu, with a fish sauce. it was really good. fufu is so much better than pate. by the way a fufu bar is like an african mcdonalds. you buy the fufu, and then they have these huge bowls of different soups and was way good.
thursday we had a meeting with président morin and all of the other missionaries who are in training. he wanted to here what we liked and didnt like about training. he then gave us some ideas on how we can improve training and ideas on how we can make it more interesting for all of us.
then there was saturday. i dont know why heavy rainstorms love saturdays. so here is the story. It was a beautiful hot saturday. Elder kognani and I left the apartment and began teaching Saulime, one of the investigators we have been working with. As she was reading Matthew 6 on prayer, people started packing up there things and running around everywhere. then it was instantly dark, and the wind had suddenly picked up. thats when the rain started coming down hard! We stood up and told saulime to go home because of the rain, and then we left to go and find cover. and we couldnt find any! so there we were, two missionaries soaked to the bone walking around in togo, laughing. we couldnt believe what had happened.
on sunday i taught primary again with elder potter. After church the group president came up to me and handed me the cds from this past general conference. super random. he told me to bring them to church next week. so... i have general conf. in my apartment. im tempted to watch them...
then today, elder potter gave me a haircut. but the guide to the buzzers fell off as he was giving me a hair cut, and left a massive bald spot on my head.ladies and gentlemen. i have a random bald spot on my head.
so this was my week. really busy, and productive.
i love it here in africa so much. it is super exciting here. i hope you are all staying safe. i think of you all eveyday!
ayee zandé
Elder Magré
