Week 10!- Note from Mohamed

Hey everyone everything here in Salone (Local’s name for Sierra Leone)  is going good!!
We didn’t find any cats:( And you guys are all confused I’ve already eaten cat and its pretty good actually haha we just haven’t caught our own to cook and eat!)
I cant believe Meghan is getting freaking married!! Best part I’m gaining a Brother… I’ve always wanted a brother! This week has been alright we taught a lot some days and other days barely at all…. There was two days this week we taught 8 lessons per day and a couple days we only taught like 3.  We also went to Freetown for some meetings this week so it was a busy week!
Something I’ve learned while here is the importance of being obedient. I’ve learned that when you are obedient the days fly by, and you are happy for no reason whatsoever. You could be having the worst day ever but you just be walking down the street with the biggest smile on your face and you’ll have no idea why. Walking in the sun, going to houses when people aren’t home and everything isn’t fun at all. But you’ll just be happy for no reason and its honestly the best feeling! There is absolutely no reason to be happy but you just are!
So this week I got my first haircut… I’m sorry mom I know you said to promise not to let another Elder cut it but I’m in Africa and things happen… The haircut I always joked about getting when they cut the sides and leave the top long, Yeah… that’s the one I got haha…. But you know sometimes you just gotta make do with what you have…
We also found a pretty big spider in our apartment and my companion just told me to leave it so we did. We woke up and it was just chilling in the corner of our room and we just left it there, it was all good and wasn’t hurting anyone. Now its gone and I have no idea where it went but its okay as long as it doesn’t end up in any of my stuff haha!
Anyway last week was a really good week and hopefully this week can be just as good!!  Love you guys!!
Elder Turner
This week we also received an email from a man named Mohamed in Sierra Leone. When I asked Ryland who it was he replied with the following. It was nice to hear from someone who has met and been touched by Elder Turner. 
NOOO he emailed you!?! That’s so sick!! Hes a member in the branch I serve in and he’s literally like one of my favorite people here! He asked me for your email today and I gave it to him but I didn’t think that he would actually email you!! I freaking love that guy!
