Workin' hard

This week was alright! Kind of unusual. Transfer week usually is. The work slows down. We taught this guy named "P". He reminds me of Dad. They even look alike, it's the weirdest thing. Haha he's just the democratic, tattooed version. Anyway, this family is awesome. They love the missionaries. He doesn't have any sons, so he always tells us he considers us his sons. He is very loving and LOVES his family. He treats his daughters like princesses, like they're supposed to be. Which is very very rare to find in the West Indies: Strong, complete, loving families.  They told us each time we come, we always bring "something with us and it's so incredibly addicting." This last Saturday, he told us he's been living in hell. He doesn't have any friends and has had a lot of terrible, scarring experiences. He opens up each time. We talked about "The Tree of Life". And he loved it! We told him he didn't have to live in hell because we definitely don't. That's the incredible blessing of this gospel. Everlasting life and happiness, not death and sorrow. We invited him to perservere, continue with the lessons, and "partake of the fruit" and taste it. Frustrating lesson, but I learned from it. And I know he felt the spirit and continues to feel the spirit. He's a stubborn guy, with a hard heart, but it's being softened drop by drop. 

Baptism will have to be pushed back, she's not quite ready... :( 

Played baseball today!!! in fact, the baptismal canidate gave me a baseball bat as a gift! So we went and played ball today. So much fun! 

Workin' hard!
