"The Gospel Blesses Families and Brings Hope"

Good Afternoon,

This week was great.  Sister Rampersad needed a few more days to rest and recover but she is ready to go.

It was my turn to do tradeoffs with Sister Edmonds.  It was nice working with my old companion again.  We saw the Monsons that day and Elder Monson called us the powerful dynamic duo.  It is true.  We work very well together.  We taught seven lessons that day and most of them were about obedience and the sacrament.

I got to try soursop punch.  It is a fruit blended up with carnation milk and sweetened condensed milk.  It was really good.  I also got to try a Tonka bean and we finally got doubles.  Of course the doubles were heavenly.  They are my favorite Trini food.

We had the opportunity to go to another church with one of our investigators.  It had very loud music and dancing.  I love going to churches because I can test the promise we give investigators.  I did it again and I received the same answer I always get.  That the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus Christ's church and that the power of God can only be found here.  It was amazing.

We went ziplining today.  It was a lot of fun.  How many people can say they went ziplining in Trinidad?  I can:).  It was a very long drive to get there but it was worth it.  Sister Taufu'i went first and she was terrified.  We met up with another zone.  It was fun seeing all the missionaries and we took a lot of pictures.

Miracle of the Week:  Brother Thomas (Fred) is doing great.  This week the Gerrard family came to church again.  They loved it.  They have a baptism date and they are learning a lot.  It is a mom, a dad and three daughters.  They are wonderful.  They want to be sealed in the temple.  The Gospel blesses families and brings hope.

Thanks for everything.  Love you all.
