One Full Week!

Hi everyone! 

This week From being chased by dogs, to the propane tank flaring out at our feet, to sweating more than I ever have in my life, to watching an old lady beat a cat with a stick, and feeling the Lord's hand guiding me and reminding me that he will always be there,'s been a full week. So full. Grenada is already dear to my heart and guess what!!!? Our investigator, Denny, has a baptismal date!! Yayyy!!! I am sooo excited! He is amazing, when the sisters first met him he was cussing and being mean to his sister and now he is one of the sweetest young men I have ever met and it is amazing to see the Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ work in his life. ANYONE can change. Anyone. Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God. Yours, mine, every single person around you. They are of great worth and they have such infinite potential. There has been some hard moments this week, when I just wasn't sure what to do, but as I plead to the Lord for help and listen for answers, he guides me. I know he will never abandon me and I hold on to that knowledge. His love is so immense. At times when we are teaching others, I feel this swelling love for them and it is overpowering, I know it's the spirit , helping me and changing my heart to love those around me how Christ does. He love us so much. I am extremely grateful to the members here in Grenada that are willing to come out to teach with us, who truly want to share the gospel in every way they can and they are not selfish, they are loving and giving of their time and testimonies. It's great. Well, that's all for this week. I love you all. I love the Book of Mormon, the Church is true!!!!!!!!! It's true.

Hello everyone! 
How are you!? I love you all!! I am in GRENADA! I have fallen in love with this place and these people, oh my goodness. Grenada is basically a bunch of baby mountains put together and as soon as I saw it I wanted to jump out of the plane, haha :D I love it here! My companion, Sister Fisher is wonderful! She wants to work hard, be obedient, and she has a passion for this gospel of Jesus Christ--- What more could I ask for? I am blessed. I am so filled with gratitude to my Heavenly Father <3 I love Him so much. He ANSWERS PRAYERS, every single one of them. We met a part member family here on..two days ago and they have seven children, one due this week, two bedrooms, no electricity, and no food and I LOVE THEM. My heart just swelled as we met each child and they embraced us so quickly, I felt like I was home <3 I'm getting emotional just typing about it. The people here have such big hearts and they are so very humble in many ways. The children really melt my heart, something I just adore is that they call me "Miss" every 10 seconds :D It's sooooo sweet and I don't know, I just love them all. The branch here is filled with med students from the United States and their wives, they are not many members that are actually Grenadian, but just now the church will be full of them :D We hiked to a waterfall today with the Elders. There are only us four sisters here in the entire country. How blessed I feel to be one of them! God is so good. Keep sharing the gospel with everyone. I love you all dearly.
 Hugs and handshakes,

My next new Home!

I love you!!! Soooooo on Saturday we got our Transfer Calls!! Sister Conrad is going to be serving in........(drum roll please)............GRENADA!!!!!! Whooooo!!!!!! I will be transfered there on Wednesday (we think, haha) and I will be training a 23 year old and opening a new area! Ahhh! Her name is Sister Fisher and she is from Utah and is a college graduate, that's all I know about her so far, I will meet her tomorrow :D I am so ecxited and nervous! I'm stoked to serve in Grenada!!! I hear it is gorgeous there :D I am praying so hard that I will be a good trainer; I'm still so new, but I have confidence in the Lord and His plans <3 He knows best! (Or he's punishing poor Sister Fisher for something, I don't know, hehe ;) ). Yesterday was branch conference here in Barbados and guess who came to visit?! Elder Cornish of the Seventy. Yes please. The spirit was burning so strong as he spoke and I have such a firm and loving testimony for the Prophet and Apostles today. They are Holy men. They are not perfect. They are special witnesses of Jesus Christ and they will never lead us astray. "Follow the prophet, follow the prophet, follow the prophet, don'tgo astray....". I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; it gives me so much comfort and HAPPINESS. I love the Book of Mormon, it is dear to my heart. You will love your Savior and feel more love from Him as you read it. I promise. Guess what? Investigator Anthony is in 2 Nephi Ch. 3! :D I am sooo happy for him and it breaks my heart that I will not be here for his baptism. I love the people here, members, non-members, and missionaries <3 I love this work!!! The attached picture is with a Sister here in our branch, Sister Brathweight, she is a true kingdom builder! She comes out with the missionaries all the time and does whatever it takes to get to the temple! How amazing is that? You know why she does that? It's because SHE GETS IT. She understands the gospel, she lives the gospel, and she loves her Her Savior more than herself <3. Sister Maico is coming to Grenada with me! She's the gorgeous phillipino girl in the pic :). Anyway, I love you all. Keep reading the scriptures and never stop coming to church.
