Dear Family,
This was a really good week!  We taught 31 lessons this week, and our goal is to get up to 50 lessons a week soon so we are working towards it.  The beginning of the week went really well, we taught a lot of investigators.  But on Friday, Sister Watkins shared with me a story the shared in the mtc when she was there of a sister missionary in Argentina who went into an area that hadn't had any baptisms for a long long time, and in a month or two she was baptizing 250 people.  So the mission president shadowed her to see what she was doing, and then wrote down some key points.  So we had a motivation change after that and are trying to apply the points.  She just constantly had the companionship of the Holy Ghost.  So we are doing a heart purifying challenge so we can have the constant companionship also.  So after our newly found motivation on Friday, we have had so much success!  Friday was so good.  We were truly guided to each place by the Holy Ghost.  And our lessons went really well.  Then on Saturday we found an old contact, we taught him a short lesson and he asked us if he could be baptized ASAP!! And Sunday we had 6 investigators at church!!!! 6!!! It was such a miracle.  So we are really doing well, and trying our best to give all of our heart, might, mind and strength to the Lord.  So it's only going to be better from here!  Sunday we decided to knock on some doors, the first door no success.  But the second, the man came out and said he was almost baptized 6 years ago and he said he was really excited to start taking the lessons again.  So we have a lot of faith and miracles are coming in St. Kitts :)  
It sounds like you are all doing well HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GRANDMA!!  Looks like you guys had a fun time.  And I'm jealous of all your bike riding!  We dont ride bikes anymore so i miss it! Anyways we LOVE the picture of us.  SO ADORBS! haha our theme pic.
Well thank you all for your love and support!! I hope everyone has a great week!  St. kitts is still the most beautiful place!
Love Sister Cole

Hello family!  So this was kind of a crazy week!  For the first half of the week i was by myself :( haha My companion sister Rivas left early Tuesday Morning and then until i could get with a member in the afternoon i was just by myself doing my studies haha it was weird.  So Sister Watkins was supposed to come that night but she got stuck in St. Thomas so i slept by myself at the apartment haha. it was crazy!  But i was fine, just a little lonely.  Then the next day she didn't come in until 10:30 at night, so I just spent the last two days organizing the area book and fun things like that.  I watched a lot of conference talks too!  haha Then she finally came!  So so crazy that we are from san fran together.  She came to my 4 year old safari birthday party!! So find the picture for me and send it so we can make it our theme picture!! haha Anyways we only had like half a week but we got a lot done!  Lots of contacting and we have 3 baptismal dates right now.  Two of them didn't come to church though :(  so we are really working with them but i know they are going to be baptized they are great!  And she's really progressing.  So pray for my investigators pleaseee!  We need miracles in St. Kitts!! But i know that we are going to work really hard here so I am excited for the next few months! This week we found so many Dominican contacts.  Sister Watkins was really praying to be in Puerto Rico and have a spanish companion to learn spanish.  But the Lord wanted us here together haha so instead we just meet lots of Dominicans!  The Lord answers prayers in funny ways.  But its good because i need to brush up on my spanish!  well anways.. nothing else is really new.  St. kitts is still beautiful and warm.  Looks like the run was really fun!  I'm tots jealous!! And Zions sounds like a fun time too.  its fun to hear all of our ancestors histories!  Well maybe i will try to send pictures? haha i will try. 
lots of love from the carribean

Hello family!!!
well i don't have much time to write because im trying to figure out stuff for byu  but...
Renee was baptized!!!!! asjdf alskdjf ;l yay!!!  It was seriously the CRAZIEST week ever.  Everything was so against her getting baptized.  Everyday was like a crazy new obstacle trying to stop her from being baptized to the point we almost cancelled.  It was 7:15 on thursday night and the baptism was supposed to be at 7:30 and we still weren't sure if it was going to happen.  But we kept praying and on our way to the baptism we were driving and we saw her and her daughter in their church clothes walking to the chapel. It really was a miracle it was so crazy! And then on sunday morning she told us that she told her sister in jamaica that she was baptized and she said she was baptized a few weeks ago too!  and they were talking about which church and she was baptized in the church!!!! they realized it was the same because of the Book of Mormon!! Renee was so excited she was like NO WAY only my church has the Book of Mormon!! Heavenly Father is really preparing her family. 
anyways sorry i don't have any time but crazy news.. Im training again.. and I'm training....sister watkins!! the craziest huh?!  I'm really excited!! anyways i have to go but i finally sent some pictures haha .  and ps lice is gone no worries.  i got rid of it ASAP!   k g2g loves byeee
