Happy (late) Easter. Yesterday was Easter Monday (whatever that is... Probably just an excuse to have a day off work). I was sitting in church on Sunday talking to this member. I asked her if she felt like it was Easter. She told me yes and asked me if I felt like it was Easter. I told her not really, because it just felt like any other day. She asked me what Easter at home feels like. Easter egg hunts, candy, Easter basket, family, dinner.... She pulled out a little chocolate and gave it to me. She said, "I can't give you everything else, but here is an Easter Sweet."
Anna-kay came and visited me on Sunday. She brought me a nice big piece of home made cake. Have I ever told you how much I love Anna-kay?? And I love her for so much more than her home-made cake. She is genuinely one of my best fiends in Jamaica. She said she might come visit me one more time before I leave (I only have 3 more Sundays :O) I told her if I didn't see her in the next few weeks, I would text her when I get home. Weird, but awesome.
Marcel came to Boulevard Ward on Sunday as well. He is another one of my best friends here. May Pen just produces best friends. Anyways, he just got his call to the Belgium Netherlands Mission. He is going to the Provo MTC so I will be able to send him things before he leaves!!
On Saturday we watched the General Woman's meeting. It was really nice. I am planning to study King Benjamin's sermon in Mosiah. Apparently we need to serve more!! I am looking forward to General Conference on Saturday and Sunday.
The work in this area is.... I guess you could say, moving forward. It could be better, but Alma says that we should be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto us. Alma 29. And I am grateful. I love Jamaica and I am grateful for the time I have to be here. And trust me, mango season is coming on and I am determined to eat as many as I possibly can before I leave.
I finished the Book of Mormon again this past week. I read from one of the little blue copies and as I read I marked whenever it talked about a step from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I wrote my testimony in the front and gave it away. I wanted to read it one more time before my mission finishes, but I'm not sure I'll make it.
Well, that's all!
I love you all sooo much
Bless up yuhself.
