Wow so this week we got our transfer calls and I found out that I am going to be heading to Grenada to be a Zone Leader with Elder Leaney! I am really excited yet really sad as well. I am going to miss Barbados a lot and I have just really grown to love the people. They are so great! I am going to miss them dearly. I have just been saying goodbye to people and stuff and that's what my next couple of days is going to be filled with before I fly out on wednesday morning. So Everet did get baptized and it went so well! I am so proud of that guy and how far he's come. He was so prepared and ready and I am just glad that we were able to find him! We met Everet when we were walking home one night to our old apartment, we saw Everet and Elder Barlow just started talking to him. We found out that he lived next to a member and he had a copy of the Book of Mormon. We set up a time to meet with him and when we went over we found that the Book of Mormon had been really used and studied and that he had a pretty good understanding of it. We talked to him about baptism and church and after some persuasion he agreed to set a date for the 19th of October. He told us he couldn't come to church the first sunday after meeting with him but that he would come to conference. We kept teaching him and answering questions and then when conference came about 20 minutes into it Everet comes walking in. I'm not going to lie, I was kinda shocked! He ended up staying for both Sunday sessions and loved it! Elder Bednar's talk answered a lot of questions he had as well. After that everything just fell into place. Probably my favorite thing he told us though is that "I've met with other missionaries and I wouldn't commit to do anything. But there is something about you guys, you are my earth Angels." It was really cool to see how his testimony grew and how that all came because we just opened our mouths. Well that's about it for this week! I love you all and continue to share the gospel! With Love, Elder Smith
