Big news at Zone Conference!

Yeah we're still in the works of getting that all figured out. (Skype-ing for Christmas) We'll have the schedule by next week. I'll ask if I can skype with the Derrs as well. Can't believe Bella just has her 5th birthday! I can't believe that she's ice skating too! Helene and Mireille will get baptized soon, just not this Saturday. We want them to be 100% ready. They're awesome though! Really cool girls. Helene is 19 and Mireille is 18. They're best friends and want to get baptized together! Hopefully it will be the following week. 

Oh that's sweet! Yeah, Elder Pratt and I conducted a fireside at the fort and it was a really edifying experience. We've got an awesome zone. Where else have you been on the island? Haha yeah, we have weird lingo. (Last week he said that Elder Santos had died, meaning, went home. It made us freak out for a second when reading that before realizing what Aaron meant!) I can't believe he's home! Time is almost non-existent in the service of God. Weird how that works. God's time isn't the same as ours. So of course it's going to go by fast. 

Zone conference was in Guadeloupe. Most French-side zone conferences are held there (For St.Martin, Guadeloupe, and Martinique). They're the best! Big News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pres. Mehr announced at the zone conference that the mission will be split!! One will be the Trinidad mission, which will include Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, English Guyana, and the ABC islands (Aruba, Curacao, and some other island, which originally weren't in our mission. The other will be the Barbados mission, which will include all the other islands, and French Guiana! Effective July 1, 2015. Won't affect me and my group, because we're on the flight home with Pres. Mehr July 1st. Pres. Mehr said the split is the affect of our missionary efforts. Almost 600 baptisms in 2014. Pretty crazy huh? 

Well, I'll let you know the schedule for skype. Talk to you later! Love you!!
