Flooding the Caribbean with the Book of Mormon

Good Morning,

The West Indies Mission is flooding the Caribbean with the Book of Mormon.  We are teaching about the Book of Mormon and from the Book of Mormon more than ever before.  We have already seen so many miracles as we focus on this volume of scripture and we are excited to continue to see results.  We are placing many each week.  The response is great.  I love the power of the Book of Mormon.

We met a cool guy named Victor.  He holds the record for the most scuba dives in the world.  He is famous :).  He was grateful for the copy of the Book of Mormon we gave him and is excited to start reading.

Unfortunately there is a mosquito disease called Chickunguna going around the Caribbean.  Several elders have it and a lot of members got it as well.  I hope I don't get it.  Mosquitoes love to bite here.

Sister Shelton came from St. Vincent to show us around the area.  She is great.  She was here for a few days and now we don't get lost anymore.  I love St. Lucia.  It is beautiful and the people are great.  Sister Hodge and I found a way to get to their hearts and gain their trust.  By learning their language Patwah (creole).  They love teaching us new words and phrases and several have even said it helps them feel more comfortable with us because we are embracing the culture.  It is sweet.  It is like a broken French.

Miracle of the Week:  Tyson.  Tyson had met with missionaries for a while but decided to take a break.  We found him in our area book and gave him a call.  He was super excited to hear from us.  He is 18 and is searching for the right church.  We talked about the Restoration and the spirit was very strong.  Awesome potential priesthood holder.  He has a lot of great questions that can be answered by the gospel.

Well...We had an amazing week.  I really enjoy it here and I am glad I get to serve here.  Thanks for all the support.
