We had an interesting week this week. Nor Dari is just its own element.
We've been visiting all sorts of people in the ward, and investigators. It has been rough to share anything spiritual with others because they insist that we just visit with them because it's the holidays.
I don't know what I was expecting with New Year's, but it has been rough! SO much food. SO unhealthy.
We got a bit sick from all of it this week. I think that it was a combination of all the food being sugary, greasy, and old--and a lot of it. On Saturday, we went to go and visit some people, and my stomach was just rolling. I did NOT feel well. Neither did Sister H. So we decided to go home, eat healthy food, and rest. Well, after eating real food and getting proper rest, we both felt great! I felt like a whole new person. I gotta say, I am so relieved that Nor Dari is starting to wind down..
We were able to do a lot of really great things this week too. We received a phone call last monday that one of our members was super stressed about Nor Dari. She works just about every day in Yerevan, she has two young kids, and her husband works on the Russian base (he is only able to come home every two weeks or so). So we was stressing because she had to clean her house, and make all of her food still. We were super happy to help her out! We helped prepare all of the food, take care of the kids, and clean. H, the member, was so grateful. It was so great that we were able to come over!
For our investigator, H, it was so funny because he tried to get me to drink wine! We were visiting him and his family, and they were serving us all the New Year's food. Anyways, he was all like, "Hey, you don't mind if I have a little wine, do you?" We were both like, "Naw, it's your choice, but we're not drinking it." Well after a while, he was just saying, "Aww, come on. What if you had just a little bit." We were like, "Uh...no." Well, he grabbed my glass and still put some red wine in it. Sister H and I looked at each other in disbelief. We were like, "we are not touching that!" Haha Crazy.
Well, I love you all! Take care!
