February 2nd, 2015

Alright everyone!!!
how are yall doing out there!? This week was a really good one for the most part haha. We had a lot of ups and downs, but the highlight of the week was the baptism we had on saturday! Its so crazy how you can come to love someone in such a short time. We got up at 5:30 on saturday morning and got prepared for the baptism which took place at about 7. Our investigator who was baptized, her name is Marcia. I think I was almost as excited as she was for the baptism. Its so wonderful to be able to see someone make the changes in their lives to better it. As you guys can see we got some really great pictures as well haha. Elder Rammell baptized her and yesterday at church I had the chance to confirm her a member. It is something that I will never forget. Other than the baptism going on we had zone meeting all the way in mobay or more commonly known as Montego Bay. It took us 4 hours to get there and we had to ride on those little coaster buses. Btw there are always about 20 people on the bus at a time on average and it is only suppose to seat 12! It was a really powerful zone meeting though. Elder wilkerson and Elder henderson  are awesome zone leaders. I wanna be like them when i grow up lol. Earlier in the email I said it was an up and down week, which it was. We had so many appointments fall through and even the backups as well. So there was only one thing left to do which was contacting. We came into contact with about 40 potentials this week. One of them is bound to accept the gospel haha. Other than that things are going really well for us right now. We are doing good as a companionship and i am improving each and everyday. Ill be so happy when i get done with training though. I am ready to move on from that label lol. Oh and Since i have been on my mission I have also lost 25 pounds, which is why all my clothes dont fit anymore lol. Im just so thankful to be out and serving the lord each and everyday! See you guys next week!

"Serving the lord on an island in the sea, through the winds and the waves I hope you're thinking of me!"
