Easter is coming!

I know this is a super short email, but here goes :). So we are doing much better with member work this week!!! Yay! We have two members that live in our area and they are less active, so member work is a bit difficult, but we are finding success! A recent convert, named Jonathon came out teaching with us this week and it was awesome!! I was so touched, as were our investigators by his testimony. He wasn't afraid to share what he knew, not even a bit and he was able to teach with power and love because of it. The influence of members is so great and powerful and necessary. Missionaries are there for a few months, but members stay. I invite all of you to make it a goal to go out with the missionaries once a month. This coming month is the perfect time. The Savior did everything He could do for us to have eternal life; we can do a little and a lot to help others have it too <3 :). I love you all and I am really grateful for the encouragement you give me!! I know we are all where we are at for a reason, usually for many reasons and whatever situation we are in, no matter how difficult, can work out for our gain, and for others, if we ask our Heavenly Father what He wants us to do. "What lack I yet?". Much love!!!! -Sister Conrad

p.s. put your best foot forward!

Sweet above all that is sweet

So GUESS WHAT!>!>!>??? 
We are teaching a family of seven and they want to be baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot express the joy and love I feel around them, they are a gift from God :D. There are seven of them and the kids adore us, I can honestly say I have not felt so much love in a family here in St. Lucia as i do when we visit them. We have been blessed to see them THREE times in one week! :D The 13 year old, Molinda, taught the Restoration back to us and it was perfect, she's a secret genius I'm pretty sure. Wow, my heart just about bursts with joy after every lesson, we always feel the spirit with them so strong. We are also teaching a man we found named John. I called him to invite him to institute and he showed up! We've never even taught him, just contacted him on the street and then he came to church Sunday! At the end of church we had a lesson with him and it was a sweet experience. I felt so strongly the love God has for him and felt that I needed to testify of it to him and the spirit was overwhelming. I've never felt like more of a servant of God on my entire mission than I did right then. It was very special to me. I'm glad I can share it with all of you. I know God's love is real and it is "sweet above all that is sweet". I am so happy to be in His service. I'm grateful for my Savior and that I can come to Him on the conditions of Repentance <3. I need it! Today Sister Maico and I are flying to Barbados for MLC, I'm so excited! Also yesterday was Independance Day, so that's why I'm emailing today. 
Have a wonderful week everyone!!!!

first week of St. Lucia!

This is gonna be short and messy! 
I love you all and want you to know that I am SO HAPPY to be a missionary!!! Ssiter Maico and I are doing just peachy here in our first week and we've experienced some miracles already :D Especially seen how sweetly our Savior and our Father in Heaven love us :D <3 i was able to bear my testimony and speak in sacrament yesterday and I just love feeling the spirit. I am so unworthy to represent my Savior, but I am so grateful he lets me <3 I felt the most peaceful reassuring feeling that this is where the Lord wants me as our plane touched down in St. Lucia. I love it so far. I love the branch, our area, and the missionaries. I am so happy every day. Missionary work is an adventure. I am grateful God seeks to help me to be humble. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I love you <3 
-Sister Conrad
p.s. next weeks email will be longer, promise!!!!!!!!

Transferred to.....St. Lucia!

Alright, let's get this over with....I'M GETTING TRANSFERRED! :( :(  I'm getting sent to St. Lucia and my new companion is none other than..........SISTER MAICO!!!! HAZZAAHHHH!!!! :D <3 We are being called as Sister Training Leaders over St. Lucia and possibly Grenada. I am really sad to be leaving Grenada, my heart is broken a little, but I know that this is what God wants me to do and because of that, I know everything is going to be okay. What would I do without the gospel of Jesus Christ?! It gives me ultimate peace. I have been saying goodbye to all my family and friends here and it has been tough, but fulfilling. I am so grateful to everyone I have met and the experiences that I've been through. I LOVE GRENADA!!!!!!! <3 I'm going to miss Sister Timaia, she is exactly the person I have needed to learn from the past three months <3 And I'm reallyyy going to miss Sister Provstgaard, Grenada is in good hands. I know that my Redeemer lives, I know He loves me and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Lord's kingdom on the Earth. I love you all!!!! Here's some facts for fun:

-Sister Maico is the one who welcomed me off the plane in Barbados and flew with me here to Grenada and she is a crazy Fillipino. 
-Saying goodbye makes me feel like I'm leaving home again....
-I officially like SPAM
-My area in St. Lucia is called Castries (google it)
-I love my Savior Jesus Christ 
-I am not ready to be an STL, but things will be alright, if I humble myself and lean on the Lord <3
-The seasons still haven't changed......
