Can't Do Much When Stuck Inside For Days Due To Carnival

Good Afternoon,

Because it was carnival we were stuck inside so this email may be a little short and boring.  Sorry;)

Great news.  Sister Rampersad will be staying with us for the rest of the transfer.  We are very excited.  She is such a great missionary and friend.

Sister Taufu'i hit her one year mark this past week.  Exciting.  We went to Yogurt Land to celebrate during our lunch break.  A few of the Elders hit their year mark too.  It was fun.  I hit my nine month mark which was great as well.  Half way done.  I can't believe it has gone by so fast.  I heard it goes by even faster at this point.  It is crazy.

We were stuck inside for carnival.  It wasn't too crazy in our area.  There were annoying cars that would drive past with their loud speakers and the music would shake the apartment.  I pretty much studied and exercised all day.  It was nice to get ahead on my bible studying and memorizing.  It was hard not going out.  It is even harder trying to see so many people in half a week.  Heavenly Father will help us so I am not too worried.

On Monday we noticed a lot of smoke outside our apartment.  We went outside to see what was happening and it turns out our neighbor decided to burn their garbage.  They do that a lot here.  I don't know if they meant to but they caught the whole field behind our apartment on fire and it was smokey all day.  It was kind of scary.  We were praying it wouldn't cross the fence into the yard.  Apparently people burn garbage often here so it wasn't a big deal.

Fred (Brother Thomas) is doing well.  He is still coming to church, reading, praying, and is enjoying the church movies we take.

Miracle of the Week:  President and Sister Mehr decided to fast with the Gerrard family (we had been working with them for a while but gave them a break).  The family is doing work on the mission home so they know President very well.  They invited us to come with them to teach them about fasting and then President and Sister Mehr joined them in fasting.  The lesson was really good.  On Sunday they all came to church and said they were having a great experience.  It was amazing.  They still want to be baptized so we are excited to start working with them more.

Thanks for everything.  Love you all.
