August 4, 2014 - Elder Tripp, 19 lessons, basketball, marche,

Area: Pointe Noire,  Republic of the Congo
Comp: Elder Tweneboah
Pointe Noire Sunset (from the Baileys)

Dear Dad,
I highly envy your pile of smoked ribs and I curse you for it... I would try to out do you, but my best story I got this week was hanging out with one of my best friends Elder Tripp among the other Elders in my District sitting in an air-conditioned room. I ate some ice cream and oreos in homage of my love of ice cream. Ha ha. That was my chunk of paradise and the outside world besides having an awesome week out in the sector with my companion Elder Tweneboah.
I had an awesome week and it sounded like you guys had en epic week as well. Elder Tweneboah and I taught 19 lessons, ended the week with 8 baptismal dates, and I worked hard this week and that felt awesome. It was a super solid week and I loved it.
It was nice to see all of the pictures you guys sent me. All of you looked like you had an awesome time together.
Well, today will be an awesome day and it already has been thus far. Here is the details up to this point and the plan for the rest of the day.

So this morning we got up and headed to the church to play basketball, not in any way shape or size regulation standards, but we had an awesome time playing. I was rocking this morning and my ball handling skills seem to have gotten better lately which is really cool.
Now I am at cyber, and after this we will head to marché and following that we will head to the beach, have an awesome time, put my feet in the ocean, and maybe play some soccer or something.
And then we will head home, eat some chicken, and then we will crash for the night. And then we will wake up and work our butts off tomorrow. Awesome.
I am stoked. That is my day and my week. I love you Dad!
Have a good one!
Love Elder Massé

Note: Elder Masse has mentioned how nice it is to see Elder Garland again.  Elder Garland mentioned him in one of his letters:

"We had an awesome Friday as we went to Darcyne's to help them
rearrange some stuff in the corner of her parcelle.  She had this
whole work force there cleaning, painting, filling the pool, redoing
the electricity, gardening, all this stuff to prepare for the party
after the baptism.  Afterwards, she gave us each these little sand
paintings that are so cool, it was a wonderful surprise.  We went
straight to pick up Elder Johnston's new trainee Elder Bybee, and he
seems like a great kid.  He's been in Douala working in Bonabéri with
my good friend Elder Brockbank in my old sector!  He gave me the best
news in the world - the Moumé parents that has son is on a mission in
Côte d'Ivoire, who I used to teach with Elder Massé, ARE GETTING
BAPTIZED!  I was so happy, I can't even explain.  How beautiful."
