WHAT it'll be like 4 sister missionaries in french side this coming transfer and 3 new sister missionaries are coming in!! this is so exciting well find out saturday our calls and stuff i am so excited i want to stay with banks in abymes because this place is awesome and banks is awesome!! OH! haha i forgot to tell you but i got your package only 1 i got the second duplicate package that's what you wrote on your card anyway like last week!! THANK YOU SO MUCH but i gotta do other stuff on the 14 and need my birth certificate? sorry if you could send that it could be good lol and thank the shulers for the package!! I LOVED IT i was like craving twizzlers and she sent them!! so that was real cool!

alright so this week was so good!! seems like all our amis dropped us so our teaching pool went way down but we prayed and fasted to find some new people who sincerely want to be closer to our heavenly father and we found some super cool people!! We still are teaching our cute couples too and guess what! There is the cutest family and they are getting married in October and the wife whose name is annie asked banks and i to be her maids of honor if her sister and mom cant make it which was so sweet and honestly i have grown so close to these people here i never want to leave!! She took down our sizes so she could buy us dresses for it oh my goodness she is the sweetest but i really hope her mom and sister can make it cuz like its a wedding i donno lol you know! were supper excited for them! and we've been teaching marc and kethlie and took two members to teach with us and we walked up to the door to Knock and it started pouring on us so marc let us in but his wife was passed out we felt so bad there was like 4 of us in there cute little house and she basically woke up to a house full of strangers we've only had like 3 lessons with her but she's so cool and SO CUTE she was up and like alright what are we singing today lol it was awesome we're really excited to teach them! We have been really struggling this past week to have our lessons we plan earlier in the week stick throughout the week i donno why but everyone has been canceling or just not being there....that Caribbean time though lol but it has been so cool to see how when something falls through most of the time it's because we needed to be in that place at that time to talk to someone that is there and we've definitely seen it this past week finding those people who are looking for something and sometimes they're not sure what and i know without a doubt when someone feels that way it's the gospel that they feel is missing it's so amazing to see how it fills the hearts of the people here and how they can feel it but sadly we'll teach some people and we know they have felt the goodness and what it can bring them but they decide later on that its not for them and its amazing to me to see how quick they are to forget how they felt when we taught them or there little experience while reading the scriptures i donno it makes me sad. OK cool story right here so a few weeks ago someone stole our lights for our bikes lol we've been riding lightless for a while and i know its not safe and i am sorry mom but we do wear reflectors and were good. Well we had that lesson with the supper cute couple and walked out of the lesson around 7 at night and Banks tire was flat they didn't have a pump brenden who is actually their neighbor didn't have a pump so we just went like house contacting asking people if they had a bike pump and we asked this lady she said she didn't and pointed to a house across the street a ways a way and was like i think he has one! so we were like cool and walked over there we were about to toottooottoot this house when their neighbor walked out carrying a bunch of chairs we asked if he needed help he said no then we asked if he could help us lol and asked for a bike pump he was on it! he was like a man on a mission to help us get this tire going again it was so cool he found a little pump got her tire workin again and was like where are your lights?!? we told him someone stole them so he was like wait here walked Inside his house and gave us both a front light and a back light. Were going to teach him later on this week but i know heavenly father watches out for us as missionaries and i know he is helping us help the people here and the people here to help us! It was so cool to see how that man didn't give it a second thought to give us the bike lights and to help Banks with her tire. earlier on in the week we had a few incidences with just the boys here being gross and it was just a testimony to me that there are those good people and those people who helping others is just like second nature to them i donno it was a cool experience mom i donno if it even sounds as cool as it was but yeah anyway i hope you have a good week!! love you:)
