This week has been really good. We have been able to visit with many of our investigators this week. It has been a blessing. Sometimes it is difficult to see them all with trying to coordinate our busy schedule and their busy schedule. We have been able to find a lot of great investigators who have been prepared. A lot are beginning to progress really well. Well, This week is transfer week! It's a crazy one. There are a lot of changes occurring. President Herrington called Elder Moli and I to give us our transfer call on Saturday night. Well Elder Moli after 10 1/2 months is finally leaving the island. He will be leaving to Barbados to serve with my papa Elder Odhiambo. Elder Odhiambo's last companion will be coming here to St. Lucia with me in my area. His name is Elder Kuru. He came out with me. He is from Austrailia. We will continue to serve as Zone leaders here. I'm glad to stay to continue to teach the great investigators that we have. Our area has been progressing really well. With transfers I have mixed emotions. I am glad to begin serving with Elder Kuru. With the time I've had to get to know him he is a great person and a great missionary. Though after these many months of serving with Elder Moli I've gained a great friend. Elder Moli is a man with a big heart. When I first started serving with Elder Moli I witnessed an experience to show this. It was when we went to visit a family he and Elder Clement had been teaching. Elder Moli was leaving the area and they were saying goodbye. It was hard for them to do. There wasn't a dry eye. Now that he is leaving to Barbados we went to say goodbye this time for real. He will be really leaving and I don't have words to describe how hard it was for the family. They love Elder Moli and Elder Moli loves them. It was a tough experience for Elder Moli as well. In sacrament meeting he gave his farewell testimony. With tears in his eyes he bore his love filled testimony. It left many with tears. He is a man of love. There have been many, many experiences throughout these past three transfers that shows it. I owe him a lot for what he has taught me. I will miss him. It will be a transition for me for him to leave. But it will be good. Though sad and hard Elder Moli is excited for the change. Since the transfer call we've been spending time saying goodbye with everyone. Everyone loves Elder Moli and he will be missed. I love you all! Thanks for sending those photos! Love and miss you guys tons! Until mothers day! Can't wait! Have a great week and take care.
We've been able to start teaching Shenelle again. She came to church this week and was crying during Elder Moli's testimony. We as a district here in Castries went and did service for her at her home on Saturday morning. We helped her paint her home. She is rebuilding up her house. She has been reading the book of Mormon and already has a testimony. She had an experience of when she was having a hard time and she turned to the book and started reading. Her troubles left her and she had a peaceful feeling. Super cool :)
This is that family I was talking about. Christina, Sancha and family. They were the ones I interviewed.
This is them crying. Christina was having a really hard time. When it was time to go she couldn't do it and began wailing. It reminded me of the other side of heaven when they were mourning for the dead.
This is Michael and his family. We recently started teaching him and he is progressing well. He is reading in the book of Mormon. He loves his family very much and works hard to support them.
Taking pics today for p-day at the beach :)
