New adventures in Trinidad

Good Afternoon,

This week has been different. We have been taking care of Sister Taylor because she has dengue fever.  (This is a disease that is carried by mosquitoes and the mission has had an outbreak.)  She and her companion have spent the night at our apartment a few times.  We had a sick party on Thursday and Sunday, except Sister Gossard and I participated on Sunday (not dengue fever) so it was more fun.

Jello is delicious.  I never appreciated jello as much as I have on my mission.  For some reason it is very appealing.  A member named Brother Mohan gave us two tiny pineapples that were delicious.  Our land lady gave us two avocados which were great on our sandwiches.

Our land lady has a lot of dogs, a lot of fish, a parrot, goats, and a cow.  We see her a lot.  The lizards here are a lot bigger than the ones in Barbados.

On Tuesday we are doing trade-offs.  I will be going with Sister Jewell to Chaguanas for 24 hours.

Success of the week:  We met a young man named Tevin while we were tracting.  He was reading the Bible when we found him and we talked about the Book of Mormon.  He came to a Young Single Adult fireside and we gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon.  We also showed him around the church and he loved the pictures hanging.  We are really excited to work with him.

We were reading in Alma about Moroni and how he didn't stop preparing for war.  We should always be building our testimonies because if we stop, Satan will find our weak points.  As we make our weaknesses strengths, it will be harder for Satan to get to us.  One way I have found has helped me daily strengthen my weak points is morning prayers.  As I pray and ask for strength from my Heavenly Father it helps me throughout the day.
