Well I know I already said that I experienced the hottest day of my life, but last Saturday topped that! Gosh, it's been crazy here! Yesterday was Grenada's Thanksgiving so you know we slept with ear plugs in ;). On eo four investigators came to the Thanksgiving function at the church though and he liked it! We had a lesson with him later that day, and he said he felt the spirit! He knows the gospel so well from studying the bible, he basically taught us the great apostasy and he believes that Joseph Smith really was a prophet! We invited him to be baptized and he said he will work towards it!! Yay!!! We are teaching a family that we found and they are soo wonderful, I get so excited when we get to go teach them. They have two little kids and I love them so much!! When they see us coming up the road they run down and tackle us! :D There was a baptism on Saturday!! An 8 year old boy got baptized and his mom is a member. She said that Saturday morning, she jokingly told him, "I'm too tired to go to the church today", and he responded, "Fine, well then I'll go by myself because I AM getting baptized!". Haha, that was awesome XD. We started to meet with a new investigator named M, and he wants to change his life so bad. He was expressing his frustration about his weaknesses and I showed him Ether 12:27 
"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness . I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." He loved it so much, he was like, "Do you have any other scriptures like that in this book?!" (the Book of Mormon) :D Hhahaaha :D I wrote down a list for him to read and every now and then we text him a new one. He's so great, I love humble people! I need to be one. I love you all!! I invite you to read Ether chapter 12 and think about the principle of FAITH <3. It's the first principle of the gospel. Here's a pic of our Zone here in Grenada, also a few locals, and minus a few missionaries. 
Have a great week!!!!

Hewwo :D It's me :)

HI! :D 
This week was soooo fun!!! OUr Sister Traning leader, Sister Lamb, and her companion, Sister Rindlisbacher came from Grenada to train us and see how we were doing and I love them so much!!! Six sisters in one appartment, the spirit was SO strong and the fun was contagious!!! I love learning and growing from spiritual giants around me! I am so grateful to be here at THIS TIME <3. I am so grateful, I jsut want to shout hymns from the top of a mountain--- My God is and awesome God!!! :D I lvoe that Heavenly Father listens to each word we speak and knows the words we don't and that he answers us. He is so loving. About a week ago we had our first lesson with a woman, named Naomi, and I am just blown away by how prepared she is and my heart is so full of lvoe for her, I don't even know what to say, I love her!! She is due with a son soon and she came alll the way down this crazy hill to come to our relief society activity this week and she had a blast!! It was amazing! And the members were so great about being her friend and getting to know her and making her feel welcome, it was a party ;D I have way too much fun as a missionary, but it's not all fun and games. I know that. But I am happy and grateful and stand in awe of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and how involved they are in every life on this Earth-and in Heaven <3 He loves us!!!!!!!!! This morn we hiked (quite a hike btw) up to the top of a mountain here called mt. Quaqua and ohhmygosh I could see every single side of the island, like I was on the tippy top and it was amazing. Our whole Zone hiked up there and we sang "I am a Child of God", because that's what we are. "If we but learn to do His will, we'll live with Him once more". How great is that? <3 I love you all and hope your week is spiritually uplifting, if it's not, then go watch General Conference and it will be <3. The words of the prophets alive and deceased, will anser your prayers and give you guidance and help you understand more about God's plan than you ever realized or ever will, until you listen. 
Keep up the missionary work back in the blessed United States, I love you all!!!!

Rain, Thunderstorms, and love!

this week has been soaking wet!! Haha! :D And luckily, plenty of thunder and lighting, which i LOVE! Also crazy wind storms and things, it's so nice of a break from the intense heat we've been having. It's still hot, but just a little cooler. This is me hiding under a stranger's porch in a rainstorm. Happened quite a bit this week. So we have several new investigators that I am so excited to teach! I love them! Sometimes I am amazed at how prepared they are for receiving the gospel in their lives and when they don't accept it, I just want to cry. I can imagine that's a piece of what Heavenly Father feels when he offers us something wonderful, and we don't accept :( Last night was rough, but at the end of the night we had a miracle. We have taught a 19 year old gal and her mum a couple times and they were sooooo excited about Joseph Smith and then we weren't able to see them for several weeks, but finally last night we had a lesson with them and the father unexpectedly decided to join! :D He didn't tell us at the beginning of the lesson, but he is a Pastor at a church and after sharing the message of the Restoration he said he will read the Book of Mormon!! YAY!!! He said, "If what you're saying is true, then every person in your church should be working really hard to get the message out". How right he is!!!! I'm so grateful to be here at this time! So facts for the week:

-there are fireflies here!!!!! <3
-Everyone wants to hold hands with me. EVERYONE :(
-We hike (yes, hike) 8-10 miles each day
-I cook for the sisters here ALOT
-I LOVE my companion! She is already a boss missionary
-There are now 12 missionaries in Grenada!!! And 8 of them are in one little branch! WHOA.
-I took Elder Something's challenge to 'ponderize' a scripture every week for the rest of my life, so hold me accountable please, Last week it was 1 Corinthians 2:9
-I invite you to take his challenge!!! 
-A few weeks ago the radio guy said it was 94% humidity! What's 100%? A flood?!
Well I love you all dearly and I am so grateful for your prayers and love and encouragement, it keeps me going ;D Love you!!!

 Was not conference just the greatest thing ever!!! I LOVE the apostles and prophets and various leaders of our church!!!! I am so grateful for their marvelous words and kind loving hearts. Their words reminded me so much fo the goodly parents I ahve been born unto. My Dad, for being such a great teacher and finding many many opportunities to share His spiritual knowledge with me from very young and my Mother, for her Christlike example in all she has done. I couldn't stop thinking about them. They have shaped my life and my testimony and my eternity. I love the promise of the spirit of Elijah. Family are the most important unit, PERIOD. I understand that just a little more now. I am so grateful for families!!! Heavenly Father loves us so much!!!!! Last night we had the opportunity to teach a very new investigator. She is 18 years old and she truly understood when we taught her the restoration and she wants to find out if it is true :D Her deep love for her family was inspiring. the family unit is attacked so strongly here in the carribbean and in most cases, satan's influence is frustrating. It breaks my heart. So make a list of all your family members and what sacred ordinance they need next and plan what you can do to help and support them to get there. The gospel is simple. It's centered on Jesus Christ, our Savior <3 And the gospel blesses our families <3 Isn't that cool? Well, I love all of you and am very grateful for your prayers. Here's a pic of Sister Maico and I in our super cool African dresses, hehe. I love serving here, I don't want to leave. These people have my heart. 
Have a great week, 
Sister Conrad
