Hello Family,
 I hope you all had a wonderful new years!  I am officially in St. Kitts!  Its so different than Puerto Rico.  But I love it!  I think i was in culture shock for a few days haha and its harder for me to understand their english than it is for me to understand spanish.  So that's going to take some time to get used to haha.  But its just really great here.  The people are so friendly and polite.  My first lesson here was really strange because they're not very expressive and outgoing like the Puerto Ricans so it really threw me off haha.  I wasn't sure how to read my investigator. But I am getting used to it now.  We have a car, but we use it just to get to where we are working and then we walk around.  And i have to drive on the other side of the road!  Its crazy!  But I'm getting used to that too.  And yes I've already seen monkeys haha They are just chilling in the bushes and stuff.  But its a really small island and the church is really new here.  The branch has about 60 people in it.  Our branch President is from the Dominican Republic so we speak spanish to him.  My companion is from Nicaragua.  She's already been here for about 4 months now.  But I am really excited to be here.  I will probably be here for about 6 months.  Anyways you can still send mail and stuff, I just wont get it for a long time.  Just when someone comes out here and brings it.  Probably once every 2 months.  Or something like that I don't really know.
So we have a few investigators that have baptismal dates that we will be working for.  They haven't really gone to church yet but thats ok.  They will go this week!  People are really nice and willing to listen so we are just talking to everyone here. Anyways St. kitts is part of the puerto rico mission.  not sure why it says west indies.  i think it used to be part of it.  and thats so awesome that the watkins girl is coming.  i will probably meet here in 6 months! haha unless she gets sent out here.  the weather is always sunny, its a little warmer than puerto rico because i don't think it rains as much.  I don't really know what the food is like.  I was told they still eat rice, but its different than puerto rico. we have filtered water bottles to drink water so don't worry about that.  anyways  thats really too bad about Chito.  I guess Chito and Jo Jo will be twins with their injuries.  
Well I just want you to know I am safe and am in beautiful St. Kitts. And loving it.  I hope that you are all doing well!
