Zone Conference & Progress!

My week was pretty good.
While teaching one of the members this week, Kieth, He sincerely thanked elder Tye and I for everything we Have done for him. I was very grateful especially because he doesn't talk a lot and is really shy. He is now receiving the priesthood this week and is on his way to serve in the group.
We also visited one of the families in our group this week. They live very far away. So, we spent half of our day visiting them. After getting to know them better and sharing a an uplifting thought, we came back to the main road to catch of a van, but there were none! So, after sheltering from the rain that came down, we had a stranger give us a ride halfway back home, then another one shortly after that took us home. It was amazing to see random people offer us rides in the rain. There was a blackout at the time too so, despite the pouring rain, blackout, and the lack of a van, The lord still provided a way home for us. Not to mention, we were still in on time. Just another tender mercy.

We also had zone conference this week. President and His wife came to our island.
Zone conference was awesome. The senior couple gave an amazing talk on "Charity" They are such wonderful people.
We also got fed a lot of good pizza for lunch! 

Mathew has decided to be baptized this week! I am so excited because it will be my first, and I might leave the island next week. We are just praying that everything will work out this week, but if not, He will for sure be baptized next week.
It was his B-day yesterday, so we gave him some banana bread at church. He is a super cool guy. He has a true testimony and is excited to become a member despite the harassment of other at his school.
