Hello everyone!! It has been another good week this week. Not too much changes from week to week around here. Pres shut our Ochie trip down so we are just staying in Spain today ): Well I just talked to Devin and he said that you all are at the Memorial Day thing right now, I hope you guys are having fun. I miss summer time, I bet you guys are stoked to be done with school!!!! I know I would be!!Well mom my trainers name is Akeem Wright. If you write him do it as soon as possible, next week Wed is transfers so that means I will be finding out who my next comp is on Sat and I will be leading the area starting next week. We'll see how that goes lol!
So we had a baptism this week!! On Saturday K. got baptized.
I got to perform the ordinance as well. It was a really cool experience for me, it helps me remember why I am really out here. She has been being taught for a long time so it is cool to finally see her get baptized. K. is actually the person that I had my first lesson with ever as a missionary if you remember that pic I sent home of me and her and my comp the first week out here. There was strong support from the branch that showed up to support her as well that was good. They say that I am serving in the strongest branch in the mission so I guess that's not suprising. We couldn't get a member of the branch presidency there to welcome her tho, the branch president told us he would be there and we called him a couple mins after the baptism was supposed to start and he was like oh yeah I am running a little late in Port More right now so I can't make it. Other than that things ran really smooth. So last week for church , church is supposed to start at 9:30 and not one member of the branch presidency was there at 9:30. They started showing up at like 9:35 9:40. Jamaica standard time ha it's crazy. I also had to teach Gospel Principals class last week because the teacher didn't show up. They told me to teach so I stood up walked to the front they told me what chapter the lesson was on then I had to go from there. I had to teach chapter 18 and it turned out pretty good. :)So last week I got to teach a lesson while sitting on a couch, this week I got to walk on some carpet!!! It was so nice to walk on the carpet it felt so good underneath my feet! I didn't realize it until I walked on this carpet but no one here has carpet, they either have tile floors or cement floors everywhere. I didn't realize how much I love carpet until I haven't got to step on it for 3 months!
