Dear Family,

    Sorry last weeks letter was a little short, the computer wasn't working too well.  This wek flew by so fast.  we've been busy teaching lots of lessons.  Time goes by so much faster when we have people to teach! 

    Last week Mckuen was baptized.  I sent pictures of it i think.  It was a really sweet baptism.  Mckuen is the greatest example of a change of heart.  The first lesson we taught him was on March 20 and he was baptized just a little over two months later and did a complete 180!  He's a perfect example of how we all can change with just a little desire and the 3 basic building blocks; prayer, scripture study, and church!  Yesterday he received the Aaronic Priesthood and said the opening prayer in sacrament meeting.  It all just happened so fast.  We didn't even know he was getting the priesthood yesterday and then they announced it during sacrament meeting.  So that was really awesome.  The branch is doing a great job of helping him adjust.  And we did absolutely nothing in his conversion.  He was just prepared.  We are so blessed that got to be here to witness it.  We met him because he just showed up one day to church out of the blue! 

      This weekend our investigator Karina is getting baptized!  She's 17 years old and another one of those prepared people.  We did nothing with her either.  We've only taught her a few times but she's ready!  She wants to serve a mission and everything.  She loves young womens and was already good friends with the girls there.  She's going to be a great asset to the branch because she speaks English and Spanish and is a good bridge between the two cultures. 

     Basically we aren't doing much.  Heavenly Father just puts these people in our path.  This week I've really learned about timing.  We've been set apart to find the people here who are preapere in my time and as long as we are just trying to find them, Heavenly Father will lead them to us.  
      Two weeks ago we went to Nevis for P day.  It was beautiful.  A lot like here but smaller and quieter.  It was a lot of fun.  We took the ferry to get over there.  It only took about 30 minutes.  It was nice to just leave our island for a little bit.  We just walked around and then we went to the Elder's baptism, so I'm really glad we could be there for that.  

    Last week we just relaxed and ate lunch at a Rasta farm.  It was the best thing I've ever eaten.  I don't know why everyone's into hipsters.  Rasta is so much cooler.  Thinking about adopting the Rasta lifestyle.  Mormon rasta?  haha it could work.  We did yoga there the other week.  You guys would love it.  When we come back, I'll have to take everyone there!  Today the branch is going to the beach for a bbq so we will probably go there for an hour then back to the Rasta farm haha.

     Well nothing else is that new over here.  Just lots of work to do!  We found some beautiful conch shells on the side of the road while contacting, so that was a plus.  Made contacting a little more fun!  It's mango season so we just eat mangoes and star fruit all day.  This is the last week of the transfer so I don't know if I will be staying or going. I am getting a little anxious to know!  Lots of mixed feelings.
     Well it sounds like everyone is doing great.   You're all in my prayers!  Thanks for all the love and support!  xoxo
