Well this transfer has turned out to be great! Elder Beck is from Boise and is a hard worker! He just came from Barbados and has been out for just over 14 months, he was previously stationed in the area adjacent to Port of Spain so he is vaguely familiar with its environs. Elder Babb on the other hand went down south to an area called Point Fortin that is basically the southernmost part of the Island. 

This last transfer was quite the pivotal transfer everyone (or the missionaries anyway are all beginning to tell me that I am dying soon... 6 months goes by so fast... I am not taking them on though I have still got plenty of time left!

This week has proved to be a great week! We have finally been able to get out and find a few more people! I am excited to see which ones of them will act on our message. 

We met a new guy this week named "C" We talked to him for about 5 minutes and had a nice impromptu lesson with him. He comprehended well the truths of the restoration, he did not get to make it to church on Sunday cause he was out of town but he should be there next week! We also set a baptismal date with him lets see is he makes it!

We also have found a good deal of success with two younger girls 17 and13 they are both related to a strong member so they have got great support there. We set a date with one of them for the 15th of Nov but the other girl wasn't there when we extended the date, so she did not end up with one. 

We taught a great kid last night, he is only 15 but this boy understands! He is going to do well...

This week has been a great week and I am looking forward to the transfer to come! I hope I get to stay in Diego for at least one more that would make it a year living in port of spain!!! haha! I do not now how likely that is but hey.. the end of this transfer will make it 10 1/2 months total in Port of Spain. I think I know the people here just about as good as the people in our ward back home! Maybe even better I do not even know the bishop back home.... 

Well, I love you guys .. sorry I have not taken any pictures this week .. you will get some next week of my companion and stuff.

Ward Activities...

I am glad grandma got the flowers HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

By the way Mom, that is a terrifying little countdown you have got going there. A very exciting one nonetheless. First grandchild baptized! First baby from Squidly and then me :/ haha!

This week was a pretty great week! Two baptismal dates 32 lessons and an investigator at church.

Before I go on to that, I was on Family Search the other day, showing someone how to do family history and I notice that Magee (my great-great grandfather on dads side) has not been sealed to his wife and that you mom have it reserved. I don't know if you guys know about that or if there are any restrictions on that ordinance but you guys should do it.

Back to what I was saying. Elder Babb and I have specifically been focusing on a young man named "R" We have fasted specifically for him on 3 occasions and we finally set a date with him!!!!!! yay!!! We hope all will go well with that.

We had a family fun activity on Wednesday at the park with the "S" family. You already got some pictures of that but I will send some more along with this email.

There was also an activity at church on Wednesday "family fun day" it was a great activity held at the Chapel on Wednesday. Great attendance!
Elder Babb and I didn't really anticipate playing too many games while there, but sure enough the missionaries were called in for assistance. 5 hours later and about 20 pounds of sweat we missionaries were looking pretty ragged.... haha it was fun though.

I don't remember if I told you this in the past but we play basketball or football every Friday night. It's  a ward activity.

All the activities the ward has are great. It's a missionaries dream! We have so many chances to get our investigators fellow shipped. I hope that these activities continue.

Well, not too much more for this week. I love you all!
