Life in Vincy

    So, Elder Moli flew into Barbados this past week. He went to get a visa from the U.S. While He was gone, I was with Elder Dancan, who is from Kenya. We satyed in George town. While in George town, we had the "Assistants to the President" Fly in from Barbados. I spent the day working with Elder: Dixon, Dancan, Kuru, smith,  and Nixon. I have a picture with Me Kuru, Smith, & Nixon. 
After they left, I spent another day with Elder Dancan, and then the next day(Friday) Elder Moli came home. That same day, we had apartment inspection! Great!
Our Apartment is probably the worst apartment in the mission "Health" wise. But, we survived the inspection. ;)
Sunday, We had every member/investigator drive 1 hour into town to the kingstown branch. Elder Booth spoke then we watched the "Caribbean Broadcast" given from SLC, Utah.It was a good meeting.
Today for P-day we played B-ball, and Fut-ball. 
So in general, The week was pretty busy. Elder Moli and I are excited for a couple of our investigators "Ashby" & "Nicole" we had some really solid lessons with them.
I hope to see then continue to progress. 
I love you all. Have a great week!

I went to Bequia today!!....January 9th letter

We took a ferry to the small island of "Bequia" nearby. The ride lasted one hour going there. We took a van and drove to a sea turtle reserve and got to hold big and small sea turtles. It was so cool! We drove over the entire island and saw pretty much everything. We ate pizza for lunch on the board walk right next to the bay. There were yachts,  sail boats, and  a cruise ship in the bay. An incredible view! (And good pizza)
This week was awesome! Elder Moli and I work very well together. We teach people right on the beach most of the time! The people here are so cool. We went fishing with some locals at night. We didn't catch anything this time, but next time we will.
Since we live on the "country side" of the island, we have coconuts, sugar cane, and spiders fresh at our door step. (I had the biggest spider I have every seen crawl on my foot when I got out of bed yesterday. Long story short, I didn't get pics. because I was to busy smashing it back to oblivion) We helped a family build a house this week. We carried cinder blocks down a very steep slope and onto the foundation. It was a lot of heavy and hard work. We cooled of with more coconut water fresh from the tree (So good) 
I experience so many cool things everyday here. I don't have time to say everything, but I want to let everyone know that I am loving it here in Vincy. This mission has blessed my life in so many way so far. I pray for you all at home everyday. I love you guys. Thank you for the love and support you guys send me. It really means a lot.

I'm in St. Vincent! ...January 3rd letter

I am here safe in St. Vincent. I flew out Friday afternoon. I love my new Companion(Elder Moli)
He is from Tonga. He goes home after this transfer. He is a good cook;) I am serving in the Georgetown are with another set of Elders.(The 2 companion ships make up the district) 
St. Vincent is a beautiful place. Georgetown is pretty fun. We have to take an hour long bus ride to town to get groceries and email.... It is kind of a pain in the butt. We have lessons with people right next to the ocean where they live. It is pretty cool. Our church is the 2nd story of a house. We had 40 people at church on Sunday. The church was filled. 
The Grenadines were beautiful to fly over. The island is beautiful, and our house is on a hill in the jungle, and it is over looking the ocean. It is pretty awesome. "VINCY" is awesome!
I am looking forward to serving here. I love you all. Have a great week!
