Welcome Elder McClain

Hey everyone...the first few weeks of the transfer were kinda hard.  New comp...new way of planning and teaching.  But I'm getting better now.  Elder McClain is a great missionary.  He works hard and is an amazing teacher.  I'm trying to learn everything I can from him because he has loads of good ideas that can benefit me in the Lord's work he has trusted me to do.

I always thought missions were knocking on doors and getting them slammed in your face.  But really in my case it's calling into windows outside the gate and getting rejected my having the people tell you they can't listen because they are cooking or sweeping.  Then when we offer to help out of the kindness of our hearts, they say 'no you are in your nice clothes you can't help me spray off my car out in the rain'... yes they wash their car in the rain.

We went to President Gould's house...he is the Port of Spain Stake President.  We taught about faith and how everyone can improve their faith.  They afterwards fed us Pig Tail...uuh it was actually really good...haha...It's like one of the weirdest best tasting foods down here.

We have a couple of baptisms coming up!  Sylvester and Anil. Missionary Work is really hard but also rewarding when your investigator is getting it and keeping commitments.  Well I love everyone so much and I thank you for all the support...it helps a lot.
