Week 89: Happy Mother's Day!!!

Hey Everyone!

Well, as usual it was run run run run this last week!

Tuesday we had interviews with the mission president which were good! Fortunately, we were the first zone so President Richardson was in a good mood :)

Wednesday and Thursday were just regular proselyting days which was nice for a change. At the Bishop's request, we have been contacting a good amount of less actives on the ward directory to find out if they still live there or not. They are wanting to rescue people because a lot of families are moving out of the ward and none are moving in, which is common for Florida in the summer. So the ward is pretty hungry for more active members.

One good thing that came out of it was that we ran into a Cuban family that was baptized a few years ago and now has some non member family living with them that just arrived from Cuba about a month ago. You better believe we're teaching them! So far only one of the daughters is interested; her name is Dayllana (prounounced Di-Jana). She's really taking things seriously though and really praying about being baptized. She even came to church on Sunday. We are trying to involve the parents as well, but it's probably going to take some time. But hey, pretty awesome that we found Cubans to teach up here in Stuart!

As for other investigators, Florencia didn't come to church this Sunday. Apparently, she went to her church instead. The language barrier is hard since we don't speak Haitian creole, so we are going to exchange with the creole speaking Elders to see what's going on with her. As well, the Venezuelan family didn't make it to church because Yeimer had to go to Miami for the weekend, but we are seeing them tonight!

That's pretty much it. We're teaching a few other people, but they aren't really keeping commitments so we will probably need to move on this week!

As well, we went on exchanges with the Assistants to the President on Friday. It was pretty funny because the one that came to Stuart is Creole speaking and we were in Spanish neighborhoods/lessons all day long so he couldn't participate or understand at all hahahaha. It was pretty exhausting to do all the work myself! We had a good day though and taught lots so that was good:) After that exchange he was like, "We should make a Stuart Spanish area." HAhahaha--it's funny because it's true!

That's pretty much it for this week. Life is good and quiet here, lots of Spanish, and Elder Adams always keeps things entertaining. Hopefully, I can stay here  the rest of my mission! We shall see!

Love you all and happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!

Love,
Elder Butterfield
