"Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever."
Alma 26:12

August 4, 2014: I love Cayman! I've decided I am Caymanian. I love them and their accents!

Hi Family:)

This week was good. Maybe not as exciting as last week but still good. :)

Sister Mashabela and Sister Coleman flew out on Tuesday morning, (No they did not miss their flight haha) and Sister Newcomer and I were together for a couple days until Sister Llewellyn came on Thursday. It was weird being the only two missionaries on the island.... But we will be picking up Sister Lewis tomorrow morning. So we have been a tripanionship for the week which has been interesting but good. At the beginning of the week I got to spend more time around the West side of the island and meet some of Sister Newcomer's investigators. It felt like a trade-off. haha! We walked all day to save mileage and we got burned. But the funny thing is that I don't peel here. ha! I probably just jinxed myself... that's not funny... 

We had a good lesson with Tyrone and his two kids from Ochi. We talked about the Book of Mormon with them and asked them to read the first chapter in 1 Nephi. Then the next time we went over there they said they had read! The kids did at least, Tuanna and Tianna. They are awesome! And Tyrone also told us that he didn't know that Tianna was 8. She's been 8 since January! What a good Dad... haha! So the issue about Baptism isn't as much as an issue but... still. I don't like that it was even an issue in the first place. 

Jordon is doing awesome! I forgot to mention last week I think that after church President Johnson took him and another guy to Jordon's grandma's house who is a less-active, Sister Fay Small, and they gave her the sacrament! That was one of the coolest things ever. I was proud of him. He is really progressing well and just loves this Gospel! He blessed the Sacrament yesterday during church which was phenomenal! Oh man it just makes me so happy to see!!! He has come a long way and I know that Heavenly Father is smiling down on him. :) 

It has been a crazy week and a hard one. Not much happened so i'm sorry for the short email but, what can ya do right? Today we went iguana hunting with one of the members named Gabriel and his son Ashton. It was awesome! Once in a lifetime thing! Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to eat it. :)

Well I hope that you all have a fantastic week! I love you all so much! You are so amazing! I pray for you daily! :)

Preparing the font for Jordon's baptism. It was a mess.

Iguana hunting. Once in a lifetime activity. To think when she was young she wouldn't even tough a fish.
