Thanks to Elder & Sister Bailey for the pics!

Dearest Mother,
Yet another fantastic week in the paradise of Congo. I love Congo a lot and it will be hard to part with the idea that I won't be here anymore, but I am working hard and things are just swirling around me at an incredible rate of speed. I guess when you really do lose yourself in the work you really do "lose yourself".
Anyways it was a fantastic week. I went on splits with Elder Tripp and Elder Garland and they both went awesome. Elder Tripp is working hard and his French is great now. And going with Elder Garland was kind of like old times. We had a blast. He was showing my houses and where people lived, and after all of that we had a baptismal interview followed by a baptism so that was the rest of our day. I had an awesome time.
Elder Tripp and I had some fun teaching the 10 commandments with all the hand signals and we laughed and joked as we did it. My advice to all missionaries is to make teaching fun. Be engaged and don't just be a robot without feelings. Have some fun with it. Anyways, we had a great time and I did a baptismal interview for them in their sector and she is golden. She is one of the coolest people I have ever interviewed and she was awesome.

Following that she gave us some passion fruit Fanta and then some oranges that tasted awesome.
Then Elder Tripp and I walked over to the airport which was five minutes away, got a referral, and watched an EcAir flight take off for Brazza. From 0 to 150 mph from ground to air in 32 seconds. Incredible.
And those were pretty much the highlights of my week. We worked hard, time is swirling around me, and things are just awesome. I couldn't ask for more.
The beach was fantastic by the way. I ran up and down the beach looking for sea shells with Naughton and it was just amazing. A real beach! I will definitely have to go again before I leave Africa. We will see how it goes.
I had an awesome week and I hope you guys did too. I love you and I will talk to you soon.
Until next time,
Love Elder Massé
