Brodey's Christmas Skype 12/25/16
The thing he misses most about the US is boneless chicken and Mexican food.
Jamaicans are always trying to impress the white people.
People are crazy. They met a man who told them he was Jesus and he lived in Never land with Peter Pan.
His favorite area was Portmore and then Negril.
All of his companions have been pretty good, easy going.
His bike was part of a murder crime scene in Spanish Town. He said it is a scarier than he tells us, but it is so different it is hard to explain.
He is trying to get everyone bandanas with their names on it. He has a list of all of his cousins, aunts and uncles to get them all one. They are only like one dollar each.
One of the elders told him Han Solo dies in the force awakens
Linstead has lots of coconut trees, chicken farms, and cows. It is a lot like napa valley in the US just Jamaican style.
They celebrate Christmas by having a huge party, drinking, smoking and partying.
It is foggy in the morning in Linstead and it rains a lot because they are up in the mountains.
He thinks he will go up north to the tourist towns next transfer.
He loves President Pearson. He is kind and like a friend.
Tell the Wrights that I love them and miss them.
He takes a taxi everyday to Linstead. He lives in a little town or in the bush outside of Linstead.
They are teaching a young man who wants to play football in the NFL. He wants to get baptized, but his dad won't let him. He keeps them up to date on what is happening in the NFL.
He loved all of the Christmas gifts. He got the legos, flowered tie, and all of the other treats.
He loved the sheets he got for Christmas. His sheets had holes in them. He was very excited about them.
Everyone loves his bike. It is famous in the mission. It has a big seat and wide handle bars. They call it "dog destroyer", "magic carpet", "tie fighter" because of the Star Wars stickers, "the time machine" because if you go 88 mph on it you go back in time.
His camera and watch broke. He replaced the picture in his watch with a picture of Thelma.
He needs good shoes. They don't really have any there.
He got Grandma's turtle tie. He loves it.
A member in his area always tells him about what happens on the flash tv show.
He is happy!
The elders are going to play monopoly on Pday. Everyone in Jamaica calls it Mun-oh-poly.
He said there were about 9 people who live in the yard. He was at a member's house handing dinner when he called.
The house he was in had plywood walls and a zinc ceiling. It is what we call aluminum.
This is the first area that he can't see the ocean in.
There aren't any American stores there.
Jamaicans don't understand what humidity is. They don't know any different. He says people in America think they know what it humidity is, but they don't until they live in Jamaica. You can't even describe it.
He talked to Elder Gibbons the other day and told him that they were practically cousins. Because their cousins are dating each other.
Him and a few other elders from Idaho are going on a hunting trip when they get back.
He loves the Jamaican holiday drink it is made from flowers. It is called Soral. He loves the food there.
He is really happy. He loves serving others and being on his mission. He is glad he went!
His pday will be on Tuesday this week.
