Hi everyone! Sorry that I didn't write yesterday. We moved!! We are now in an area called Gouyave. It's beautiful. (as always) and the apartment is really nice. We have our landlady who is this sweet old Grandma and our apartment was filled to the brim with trinkets and rugs. So we spent ALL day cleaning and unpacking and cleaning. Why did we move? Because after zone conference our mission president said that our sisters that we are supposed to be training are having troubles with their visas and won't be coming out until December. I mentioned to the President that a senior couple had an apartment in Gouyave. I have been with Sister Stahle for six months now in the same place. I told him that I felt stagnated and that I was stuck with all of that negative things that have happened there and never got to refresh. I needed some sort of change. So after begging to Heavenly Father to help me, we got a call that we would be moving the next day and we did!! I feel that this is so inspired!! This area hasn't had missionaries in a long time and I can just feel the spirit getting us excited to work and to find and to baptize!! I KNOW that miracles are going to happen. They had a baptism in our old branch just before we left. I was standing listening because there wasn't enough room in the room. I was with Sister Elmer and we started crying together silently because I was leaving. I heard the person being baptized go in and listened to them go in and out of the water. Such a refreshing and cleansing sound. It was a metaphor to my soul of going to our new area. It was a special moment.
