Missing the World Cup...


Wow that was a really long letter and I don't think I'll be able to to match that... haha

So the World cup is going pretty great I hear!  Yes I hear a lot of it. I am definitely going to have to watch all the games when I get home.  When we go shopping all the TV's have it going and everyone is telling me about the games. Radio statons are always talking about it. Its basically impossible to not hear about it even if I don't watch TV or listen to the radio.

As for our investigators, they are progressing very slowly.  Dana has a testimony of the church, she is just scared to share it with her family her significant other is very strongly Catholic and she is scared of what he'll say.  Also he was sick this last week so she had an "excuse" not to tell him, but she told us that there were a couple times where she felt that the Lord gave her opportunities to do it but she was too scared.  We taught the word of wisdom this week and it seems that she understands it pretty well, we'll see how it goes next week.  Claudia has a testimony of the church as is thinking of a baptismal date, but can't get to church.  Her biggest worry is that she might not be able to find a husband that is in the church haha

We met some pretty cool people this week again.  The problem as always is getting that second lesson.  If they miss the appointment for any reason its gets all too easy for them to push it off and slowly fall of the map.  One family we met was super cool.  It was a lady that Elder Johnston said he had contacted.  One day we had extra time so I thought, why not?  She let us in and introduced us to her husband and family and the spirit was really strong when we shared the first vision.  The husband said that he had been waiting to get baptized because he hadn't found the right church and seemed very serious about praying to find out, I am very excited for them.  During the lesson I felt so happy and couldn't stop thinking of how great it would be if they were baptized and sealed in the temple and really jump started the work in Martinique.

Tonight we have a soirée au parc where we are going to be performing the Plan of Salvation with the Martial family for all their friends, I'm really excited about it!

The primary here is around 4 or 5 kids and we have Trevon, the teacher, Dario, the deacon, and Joani the only Young Woman.

Well I got to go, I love you all so much!
