October 7th, 2013

Dearest Mother,
It's been an interesting week nonetheless. It's always an interesting week. It is strange too. Strange to think that I am halfway done. That I am now on the downhill slope.
Here are some answers though! 
Elder Garland is doing great. He was sick last Monday but that was about it. He is back to his normal self. 

1.  Tell me something about your apartment
We have a three bedroom apartment. One shower, one bath. Two Bathrooms. One bidet as well.  A little kitchen, and a large living space. That is the apartment. 
2. Tell me something about Douala
Douala is awesome. I love the bridge, I love seeing the estuary, and I love the people. I love walking everywhere. It makes everything really peaceful and it slows down the pace of life. I like that. I love the food, I love the language, I love my friends and members here, all of it makes me happy. 
3. What made you laugh out loud?
Watching Elder Thibault eat like a small child and getting chocolate cake all over his face because he is a goof ball. Ha ha. 
4. Whats the craziest thing you saw this week?
Watching Fidelis almost chopping his hand off while shucking coconuts.  It's nuts. Ha ha. Get it? Nuts?
5. What is something you’re looking forward to?
Elder Garlands birthday tomorrow! He is 23! 
6. Tell me about food you’ve eaten this week
I ate some Banane Malaxé! It's basically boiled bananas or plaintains with a peanut sauce with fish. Super delicious. 
7. What is your favorite thing to teach investigators?
I love teaching commandments and answering questions. Those are some of my favorite things to do. I also love teaching the Plan of Salvation. 
8. What was SUPER fun?
Going across the bridge twice this week to watch General Conference with the Gaileys. It was so awesome! 
9. Where did you watch conference?
 Chez Gailey! We watched Saturday Afternoon and Priesthood session. 
10. Anything you want me to send you?

I have actually been thinking of a Christmas Present that I want. But I will hold it in suspense because I know how much you love that. Not really. I just want to tease you a little. Ha ha. 
11. What is your PARADISE?
Missionary work! 
So this week I went on splits with Elder Davis. That was a lot of fun. I am glad we had some time to work together and go out into the sector. I am grateful for his example. 
Year mark is passed which is crazy. I also got your package with the new missionary materials! I read the entire pamphlet/book in one evening. It was really fascinating. Thanks so much for that! 

That was basically my week. It was really great. I hope that you are doing well.
Love you Mother. Thanks for everything that you do.
Until next time,
Love Elder Massé
