This week has been pretty normal. Earlier this week it rained a lot and we were trying to find an investigators house. We had found her in the area book and we had a first appointment. It was pouring and we had to walk around for a long time because we had no idea where it was. We forgot our umbrella in our apartment and eventually we found it. We called in and guess what... she wasn't even home. Oh well it was an adventure. We got soaked. Apparently the West Indians are right about the rain giving people colds because I have had a cold ever since that day;).
We had zone conference and it was really good. I learned a lot from President Mehr and Sister Mehr. We were able to see them at church because they attend our ward. President gave a talk about keeping the Sabbath day holy and fasting.
Our car had problems again so we finally got everything fixed. Luckily it only took a few days and the mission had an extra car we could use.
The Bishop's family fed us roti on Monday night and it was delicious. We took them over jello cake because their daughter loves jello and cake so we thought we would introduce them to it. They said it was divine.
The other night I was upstairs asleep on the couch (the medicine I was taking for an ulcer did that a lot) and Sister Edmonds was downstairs waiting for the nightly call. When they finally called she felt something crawl over her foot and tried not to scream so she wouldn't wake me up. It was a huge cockroach in our kitchen. She sprayed it with bug spray like crazy. The only reason I know about it is I woke up in the middle of the night to get a drink and saw a cockroach. She told me about it the next morning and we laughed so hard. I have a picture attached.
Our success of the week: once again getting less actives to church. We have been working with a young couple a lot lately. We go over and read a chapter from the Book of Mormon with them and we discuss it. They are great and always do the assigned reading. They have amazing spiritual insights and we come away learning something new every week. Well they finally came to church on Sunday and we were very excited to see them there. They needed to take that next step.
Heavenly Father blessed us a lot this week and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve here in Trinidad.
