Still Working Hard In Trinidad

Good Afternoon Everyone,

We had a great week.  We were able to take a member with us to some of our appointments and she enjoyed it.  She is about 23 and is married.  She has been a member for about 3 months and loves going out with the missionaries.

Our car is still making strange noises even though we have taken it in twice.  Apparently Bob doesn't know what he is doing because the car isn't fixed yet.  It sounds like we are dragging a dog behind us.

We had a lot of funny things happen to us this week.  We saw a smashed iguana, we picked up a sister from the airport who is from Guyana and is going to St. George Utah, caught a maxi to family fun night, made jello at midnight (twice), and had pepper starfruit.

It is hard to believe another transfer is finished.  I will be staying in Curepe Trinidad with Sister Edmonds this next transfer.  Transfer #3.  We know our area pretty well now so we will be able to make a lot of progress.

Time to brag about the Monsons.  We have an amazing senior couple.  They have helped us out a lot and I am grateful for everything they have done for us.  They are funny, caring, loving, and just all around amazing people.  I am glad they are the senior couple of the area.

Success story:  We are teaching a young lady named Asha.  She is 21 and has a lot of good questions.  Last time we met with her we shared about how she is a daughter of God and that Heavenly Father loves her.  She said she didn't know that and she was glad we told her.

We had Stake Conference yesterday.  It was held in the Port of Spain Chapel and was broadcast everywhere else by satellite like we do in the states.  It was great.  President and Sister Mehr talked about the importance of fasting and everyone learned a lot.  Stake conference here is different.  In the states the chapel is filled when it is over satellite but here we weren't even half full.  Part of it is a lot of people went to the Port of Spain chapel.  Also the church is still new to Trinidad so some don't realize the importance of stake conference.

Thanks for all your support.  I am working hard and have seen blessings and miracles because of your prayers.
