Getting Used to Barbados

I'm still adjusting to life here on Barbados ... which consists of HOT and FLAT but I'm loving it.
 
We had an unfortunate experience this week where Sister Gossard ran over a pigeon ... we thought he'd get out of the road like all of the other pigeons normally do ... well he didn't.
 
Some  terms here on the island are:
wanna = you (example: "wanna can come with us")
cheese on bread = gosh dang it
if = what ( example: if someone needed you to repeat something, instead of saying "what?" they would say "if?")
 
So that's what I learned this week.  As far as the work, things are progressing.  We're seeing some progress in our teaching pool and have found  some pretty cool people that we're excited for.
 
Yesterday in Relief Society we went over Jeffrey R. Hollands most recent talk (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/04/the-cost-and-blessings-of-discipleship?lang=eng&query=jeffrey+r+holland) It is a great message and I love the truth of what he's saying.  Luckily Sister Gossard and I haven't had any food thrown at us.  We've only experienced rocks and marriage proposals thrown at us by some of the local men.  But we endure.
 
I hope everyone has a great week!

Much Love,
Sister Crompton
