The Simple Things Are So Important

It was sad saying goodbye to Sister Gossard, and I hope she's having a great time in St. Vincent.  Before Sister Gossard left, a member made us some fried flying fish and chips ... it was delicious.  We also got together at a zone meeting and took some pictures :)

My new companion is Sister Lapides.  She's 19 and from Southern California.  She's super excited about the work and already an amazing missionary.  She's really happy that there's peanut butter here, haha.  I guess there were rumors that there wasn't any in the West Indies Mission.  She had some pretty interesting food her first couple days.  We had pigs tail and the member who feeds us every week always gives us jello with ice cream on top.  At the Young Single Adults activity she even tried playing cricket.

On Saturday the Elders had a baptism in the ocean and there were some really ROUGH waters but it was still successful :)

We had some great lessons this week and I've really come to love training because the simple, basic things in missionary work are so important!

We were able to teach a lady who was taught by Sisters in 2009, but lost contact with them because her family was going through a rough time and her daughter died.  When we found her, she still had her Book of Mormon.  It was really cool and she seemed to be really accepting when we taught her.  The great thing is that she's married and has two kids!  We are really excited to continue seeing and teaching her.

This week we have Zone Conference.  It'll be my last one and it's interesting because it will be in the same place/building of my first zone conference.  Funny how things work out.

Well I hope that everyone has a great week!

Much Love,
Sister Crompton
