Salut a tous!
      Looking back at the last week, I don't even know where to begin! So much has happened!  We had training, exchanges, finding-O MY!  We've been working with our amazing investigator Glorie, who is getting baptized on Saturday!
      This week, something I have really come to notice is the importance of trials. Yes, I said it! I am grateful for trials, I may not like them but I am grateful for them. Yes, they are hard and exhausting but that is why we are on earth-to experience. And to be honest when all is said and done my trials have brought me much closer to God than I would of been without them. Through the sad, discouraging and exhausting days I have come to develop a much stronger relationship with him because I had to rely on him. So at the end of the day, yes they may be hard but if my trials are the price that I must pay to know, and I mean truly know God. Is it really too much to pay? 
        I love you a lot! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Haitian New years soup! Made by our Investigator Glorie! So Good!


Hello everyone!
Hope you had a terrific New Year's Eve! While reflecting on the past year I realized that 2015 is the year that I was able to give my life in service to the Lord. It holds a special place in my heart. All in all, I feel like it really helped me BECOME who God wants me to be. It was a year full of learning and progressing. A hard year, but a year filled with so much growth and experience. Tender memories fill this year, like when this week we taught a woman about Christ Suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and her weeping as she realized what that meant for her. Seeing our investigator Glorie share of her first experience of when she knew that God loved her or teaching a new man-Farid, who after looking for peace and truth for over two years has committed to be baptized in March. It's experiences like this that makes 2015 one to always be remembered in me BECOMING who I am today! 
I love you all, and hope you have a fabulous week!
