Americans on Blas, SAY WHAT!!

Hola everyone,

     So last week we had a bit of problems with the computer, being as we are on an island is pretty normal, so we didnt get to write. But so many things have been happening here on the island of Carti Tupile.

So we had a baptism last week. He is 15 years old and his name is Jason. He is amazing and was sooo excited to be baptized. This coming week however we have 6 baptisms planned. I hope they all work out.
Each and every one of them is amazing.

This week we had divisions on our island with the other two sisters of San Blas. My old MTC comp Hermana Anderson and my Zone sister training leader Hermana Moss. So here on our island if you have to go to the bathroom we have to walk all the way to the church because we dont have a bathroom. So Hermana Anderson and I were walking to the bathroom when we saw white people. Yes real white people. I told Hermana Anderson that I wanted to talk to them to see where they were from.But we didnt have to. One of them just marched right up to us and said "hey how are you?" "My name is .... (I think Katy haha) and I served a misión here about 10 years ago". It was amazing to get to talk to her. 1. Her and her companion were the first sister missionaries to ever serve on the islands of San Blas. She told us amazing stories. She also said that her misión stories beat ALL of her friends misión stories, so yep looks like mine will as well.

At the time only 3 islands were open for missionary work and now there are 7. As you can see the Lords work is just moving along!!! They were the only sisters on Blas and the other islands were Elders. Pretty amazing. She was here on the island with her best friend who was not a member and the best friends husband, who was also not a member. She was hoping the trip would bring them closer to the Lord and closer to the waters of baptism haha. They were amazing. They had plenty of American food and made sure to give us some.

On another note we are doing some great work here in the Zone of San Blas. Of the whole mission our Zone is doing the best in the sence of missionary work. So President Carmack (our mission president) wanted to reward us on our hard work. So he came down to San Blas and brought with him Meet the Mormons. Which is you havent seen the movies I highly recommend it. It was amazing. We spent all day with him on the Elders Island of Nargana.

The work of the Lord is really moving foward and you can see it nice and clear.

Testifico de un Salvador amoroso que espera que vivamos los mandamientos. La decisión de cambiar es de ustedes y de nadie mas. La norma del salvador es clara y simple: "Si me amais, guardad mis mandamientos" (Juan 14:15). I love you all and hope that you have an amzing week.

Love always

Hermana Patrick
