So only one week left in this transfer! It's gone by way fast and everything is going great! I kind of hope and think I will stay one more transfer. There are a couple people that should be Baptized by then.
this week Saturday Brandon is getting Baptized. He is 15 years old and
he's a pretty humble kid. He has come to church 4 times now and loves
it. He really wants to be an example to his Rasta Dad who has way too
We had great success for investigators and less actives coming to
church! A man named Carlos and his family of 5 came, Rishi, Brandon, and
two less actives Sister Valere and Sister Harrideo came. Sister Valere
is 79 and she is real funny. She loves the church but has not been in so
long. Everyone in her family became less active and it's too far of a
walk for her to get to church. But when Brother Supaul offered her a
ride she was so excited. It made me a little sad that she was only not
going to church because of transportation. She loved church and
continued to hum the hymns all day long. So look out for anyone like her
who might want to be at church but they just need a friend.
Another thing is feed the missionaries! Even if it is just a little
drink and snack when they pass by you have no idea how good it feels
after being in the hot sun. Give them referrals and go out teaching with
them. That is a problem here is we don't have people to come and teach
with us. You have no idea how much it helps to have a strong member
there. Being a missionary in our ward back home would be heaven.
So another cool thing that happened is one of our investigators
Rishi is progressing greatly. He working on his word of wisdom problem
and I know he will do cause he has the greatest desire. Every lesson we
have had with him has been very spiritual. Recently he was offered a
great job far away in another town. At first he planned to stay there on
the week days then travel back for church. After church Sunday he told
me he has a bad feeling about it now and he thinks he is going to
decline the job so he can stay close to us and the church. And he has
faith a better opportunity will come up closer to home.
So it's been a great week here in Sangre Grande! I love you guys and have an awesome week!
Love, Elder Hale
