Hello everyone! This week has been super crazy lol. Ill start of with what happened on tuesday. We were going to see our investigator hillary, and her dad was not there. We then proceeded to go and remind him of our lesson. When we were traveling some kid challenged me to a bike race. I never turn those down. Long story short I was in the lead and won, but a few seconds later I found myself hitting a speed bump and flying in the air. My shirt got all ripped up and my arm was bleeding a lot, but its okay because I still won lol. This week we also met a really cool guy named Brian. We were just riding by and he called out to us and wanted us to hop in his basketball game. Elder Evans and I dominated of course, but he was really cool. As we were playing I find out that he lived in the states for a long time in Stone Mountain, Georgia. After we finished playing he invited us over for some drinks. He gave us some soda and we invited him to church. He came on sunday and loved it! We are excited to teach him in this upcoming week. This week has also been a little frustrating. Our schedule keeps getting interrupted because we have been having to go in early because of gang wars. Hopefully they chill out with that so we can get back to work! I hope that you all have a wonderful week! Take good care of yourselves and know that I love you all!

Hello everyone! This week was a really good week for my companion and I! We actually got some meal appointments this week which is nice for a change lol. It really makes me miss Nassau. We got fed all the time there. So this week we have been working with this lady named abby. She is way chill. She is brother Millers niece. She Is ready to be baptized in a few weeks. She was taught about a year ago by some other missionaries, but stopped coming to church. Since we have been visiting her we have come to find out that she has a testimony of the book of Mormon and the church! So be looking out for pictures soon! So we have a new missionary in our district named elder hatch. He is way chill. I was talking to him and I told him that I can rap and write music. Two days later I get a call from him. He wants to challenge me to a rap battle lol. I dont think he knows what he has gotten himself into. Im gonna destroy him lol. But this week was awesome! I just pray that things continue to go well for us here in spanish town. I love you all and hope that you have a wonderful week!

Hello family and friends. This week or last 10 days I should say have been so crazy. I just want to start off by saying that everyone effected by this storm has been in my prayers and I encourage you all to keep praying for them. I am so thankful noting happened to us here though. We were on lock down for three days and couldn't leave our house so that really sucked lol. When we were able to leave we were able to catch the sessions of conference that we missed. Two of my favorite talks from conference were from President Uchtdorf and Elder Cornish, our former area president in the Caribbean. So from this past week I will share with you a few events that happened. Try not to laugh too hard cause they're hilarious lol. I talked about this investigator that we had named odane a few weeks ago. Hes kinda out there lol but wants to learn. We were teaching him a lesson and he just starts dancing in the middle of it and going crazy . We just looked at each other and was like okay. We kept teaching him and he liked it so much he started going crazy again. the good thing about it is that we are actually making a lot of progress with him. On a side not be sure to always watch out for leprechauns and never trust them. We were talking to a member in our area and this guy comes up to us. He starts talking about my shoes and that led to leprechauns some how. He said that if you get too close to them they will poke your eyes out with their pipes and stomp on you with their spiky feet! We were dying laughing lol. So to conclude his sermon on leprechauns he told us if they ever ask you if you have seen a pot of gold you should run. Also if you come to Jamaica be careful where you go. Nobody really bothers us here but still be careful. Elder Evans and I were talking to a group of poeple and all of a sudden these ladies come up. They were asking us weird questions and next thing you know we were corned. There was one lady inparticualr who was really aggressive lol. Long story short we dipped out of there and never looked back haha. Those chicks were scary and had bad intentions for us lol. So yeah a lot of tings a guan this week. I hope all of you are safe where ever you may be. I love you all and take care!
