First and most important is I found Dr. Pepper!!! hahaha there are 2 shops on the island that sell DP thankfully the other elders had already located those shops! It was so good to finally be able to drink some of that! hahah but there has been a lot of other spiritual excitement as well!
It’s been a crazy busy week, we have been getting situated out here in the Turks!! It has been so great though! Elder Warren and Larson were able to show us around the island and introduce to some of their investigators and members so we were very thankful for that! As for Elder Shepherd and I we are doing great! We are so excited to serve here! The people and the place is very different from Jamaica! I have really enjoyed already serving the people of Haiti, the DR and Turks! They are such great and humble people! With the lessons we had this last week I can honestly say I have never felt the spirit so strong in my life! I’m not sure why?? But I love it! When we are teaching these humble people my heart just burns and I don’t know why it is so much different from Jamaica? We have already been able to find more people to teach who have so much potential! I really do know that we will have many baptisms coming up! With the language barrier we have to really rely on the spirit to know if somebody is understanding or really interested but it also helps a lot to bring members with us to the lessons so they can translate for us! Here they speak mainly 2 different languages including creole from Haiti and Spanish from the Dominican Republic! And very little people speak English so it has been a lot different teaching and contacting! It has been awesome though because we are able to use some of the members to translate for us! Pretty neat experiences we had this week!
Before we left for the Turks we were with the AP's and their area is the area where Usain Bolt lives so we went and tried to contact him... Unfortunately we were only able to talk to someone over the intercom at the front gate but he did have a BIG house with a few RZR 1000 sitting outside!
