A Likkle Moving

Hello everyone back home!

   I had an awesome experience just the other day...Well first off we moved out of the church (downstairs) and moved upstairs... It is MAMMOTH! It's the size of like a regular home. We've been told it's one of the nicest and biggest apartments in the mission. But we left the windows open because it was hot up there. The windows don't have screens, and we didn't know that bats like to fly into homes... so we got back from working a 'likkle' bit.. and there were 2 bats flying around our house. One of them flew out the window... but one wouldn't. So I found an 8 foot stick. and starting swinging! He was getting super vexed at me and was dive bombing me and I thought he was going to bite me but then SLAM!!!!! GAME OVER! 

Likkle = little... they pronounce double t's down in Grenada as a k....here's a sentence:  Will you pass me that likkle bokkle of skikkles? :)

    Well my week was good other than we were pushed back a likkle bit by moving , but we were able to get a lot of work done and so it was a good week!

    There was a man the other day we contacted that was sitting on the side of the road. He is blind. He used to be a police officer, in fact his nickname in the force was Iron-face meaning he shows no emotion. He really doesn't either. But he is a super nice spirit and has a desire to know more about God and Jesus Christ. We haven't been able to see him for a while because he was always up countryside.. but we called him the other day and he could see us. We talked to him for a while. We started talking about baptism and told us that baptism is his dream. He wants to be washed clean. It was cool to have someone else desire to be baptized.

    I also had the opportunity to give my first baptismal interview for the sisters investigator R----. He is the He is super cool and has a great testimony of the restored gospel. It was super good experience for me in the sense that I'm worthy and he is worthy and I gave the ok for him to be baptized. I loved it.

    We had a great lesson with S------ the other day. She told us that she went to the Roman Catholic church for ash Wednesday and when she sat down she just started to cry. We asked some inspired questions and found out why she was feeling bad. She told us that she felt amazing when she came to our church and knew that she needed to get baptized into the true church. She said that she wants to get baptized more than ever now. She had a great conversion experience. It has been such a great blessing to be able to teach someone so prepared.
