June 15, 2015

Good morning!!

I just want to say hey to all my fans out there!
Did I say fans?... I meant friends and family! lol lol lol

The Nassau sisters 

Well, what can I say? It was a rough week. Rough in terms of missionary work and every other aspect you could possibly think of. Okay it wasn't that bad, but let's just say it has been a week of checking days off the calendar. Despite the hard times, the time is still flowing. Three cheers for being half way through June.

So the rough times started with another rainy week. Another rainy week led to more appointments falling through. That's okay though because it allowed for a lot of finding. And lucky for us every time we stepped out of the car to walk and talk to people the rain held up. Our teaching pool has shrunk to the size of a peanut so the time to find was good. So it is rumored that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has over 500 members in Nassau. Less than 100 of them are actually active. That leaves over 400 members of the church lost in Nassau. So one day we were walking in this neighborhood we had never been before. We found ourselves talking to this lady named Brenell. She was sitting in her yard drinking some beer. She starts telling us that she used to be a member of the church about 10 years ago. She told us that she would feed the elders every once and awhile. She even attended early morning seminary! We explained to her that she was still a member and we set up a time to meet with her again.

My faves

A few streets later we ran into this lady named Kelly. She starts telling us that she was a member of our church. She told us that the elders would come by and teach her and her friend. She said they were both baptized in 2012. So we start asking her about the Book of Mormon, she has never heard of it. We asked her about Joseph Smith, She has never heard of him. At this point Sister Nelson and I were both thinking there is no way she was baptized into this church, but then she starts telling us about the church. She knew exactly where it was. She told us about her baptism in a white outfit and being completely immersed. Anyways, Sister Nelson and I were lost so we checked the records. No sign of a Kelly Thompson. It will be interesting to explain to her that she is not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I hope Sister Nelson knows how to break it to lol. Hopefully she will keep meeting with us, then she can really become a member.

Weave Weave Weave

We have three investigators preparing for baptism. All of which are Haitians. They are all super prepared, but they all have something holding them back. Augustine is probably the closest. He would have been baptized before I got here, but the sisters found out that he hadn't told his wife about being baptized. His wife is in Haiti, and apparently Augustine cannot call her until accomplishes something in Nassau. It sounds a bit like a spy mission, but he is covering it up with some story about money. Anyways, he says he it will be taken care of within the next two months. The next is Islande. Islande is so great! The only problem is the fact that she is living with a married man.  It is not really as bad as it seems. The mans wife left him years ago, but they never got a real divorce. The wife now lives in the states and they are having a hard time contacting her. The last is Yvonne. Yvonne has a baptismal date for July 11th. She may or may not be mixed up in some stuff that may or may not give certain grandparents bad dreams. Yvonne is on a slight hold as of right now.

Mango Season!

Well, I will continue pressing onward, will you?
I sure hope so!
I love you all with all my heart!
Have a fabulous week!
