Hope you all had a great week, I sure did!
This week we received a couple referrals (other missionaries send a friend who may be interested to us to go visit) this week. One was from Sister Missionaries in New Zealand and it was a lady named Victoria and her family, we got pretty lost and then eventually found her and her husband and two girls. They are super cool and we shared the Book of Mormon with them. It was a tender mercy, they are hoping to visit church or an activity soon! And we are still working on the other referral but it is wonderful how this is a worldwide church!
Our 14 year old friend, Rianna has been reading the Book of Mormon still which is super awesome, and when we stopped by on Friday her whole family let us come in and meet with them. We didn't necessarily have a lesson but we did get to build a relationship with her mom and siblings and shared some scriptures and it was a wonderful that opportunity presented itself so we could meet her family. Speaking of friends, we had two friends come to church, Wally who has been coming for about 4 weeks on and off now and Damion. Damion is really nice man from St. Vincent and he reads the Book of Mormon each day. Last week he told us he feels something different when we are over and as he reads. We promised him if he made time to come to church as he is here on a work Visa to support his family back home he would be more blessed with work opportunities. Then he came we bussed to Bridgetown and then to Rendezvous where church is, and he really enjoyed it! I am so happy our friends are coming out and experiencing the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
This week we were spoiled on Valentine's Day. It is hard being away from family, friends and everyone you love sometimes but we made cookies and went and visited our friends and others who would not have anyone. It honestly was so fun and we were able to express our love and God's love for them. The smiles were worth it. Here in Barbados, relationships and the importance of family is a bit corrupted. That is why I love that our message truly focuses on families and how Christ can strengthen all our relationships!
Tearing it up on the good old bikes lol.
I hope to hear from you all, I love emails, letters and any updates! Hope you all have a wonderful day and don't forget to tell someone you love them!
