Sang a duet in big deal!

Easter was good! Elder Dayton and I actually sang a duet in church. "Ce Matin La". I think it's "That Easter Morn" in English. It went well I think! 

 I'm really excited for this zone conference! Flying in to Guadeloupe should be fun. The Turners are great, love them! They're funny. Very helpful too! It's nice having a senior couple for a change.

Haha I figured you guys would be watching that or Ben Hur. That's crazy! No earthquakes here though!

Pres. Mehr came to Martinique last Tuesday to do a fire-side with the branch. And we did our interviews then. Yeah, I'll let you know about the skyping thing, don't worry. You'll probably get to meet Elder Dayton. We're thinking we'll be with each other another transfer. 

As far as goals and numbers go, probably the worst I've had on my mission. None of our investigators are progressing. I'm thinking we're just going to have to clear the board and start fresh. It's hard to get members to work with us, considering we only have about 11. Its tough. Not sure what is most effective in this case.. 

Other than that, Elder Dayton and I are doing well. We continue to pray for miracles and we're working hard. It is a blessing to be serving these people.

Not much new. We moved out of the home into a smaller apartment :(  We used to hold the group in our house and that became the church building for the group, but missionaries can't be living in the same building, so we had to move out. The new apartment is nice though. 

Love you mom and dad!

Working hard

Elder Fraley's address has been updated! If you would like to send him a letter, check out the contact information page!

So everything is going great! The work is tough but it's coming well. We had a baptism last Saturday and the Elders in Lamentin had one too! "C" and "S"! "C" was baptized by her recent convert boyfriend, which was really cool! And "S" was baptized by Elder Drennan! 

Also, We finally got a senior couple down here, they're great! My first ones! The Turners, they're from Canada!

Elder Dayton and I are working hard at trying to help this group grow. We planned a BBQ for the group next Saturday, hopefully that'll turn out and be edifying for the members and investigators! 

Yeah Elder Dayton and I get along, he's a good missionary! His French is really good too, so I'll learns lots from him. 

Conference was great! The talks were very edifying and inspirational. Many of which touched my heart. 

Same old same old! Pres. Mehr comes in tomorrow and then Zone Conference is next week! Should be exciting! 

Love you all!!! Especially you mom!! :)

Take care!

From his email to me:

Martinique is beautiful!!! I love it! The members are awesome, the work is a little harder. People are friendlier in FG, but they're still great! Elder Dayton is great! Yeah, a lot of people ask if we're brothers. It's funny, I'm still Elder Doctor. Elder Johnston called me frantically asking about the appendix because he thought his burst. Pretty funny. Had a baptism last Saturday! Pretty cool! "C" is awesome, super strong testimony.

Not much else! Conference was great! I loved those talks too! 

Take care Ash! Love you!!! :)
