The Trash Can

This week was a pretty good one following Carnival! It was a little bit tough at first because a lot of our appointments fell through due to the after Carnival hang over but after that we were able to really get things going! 
Yuandia is still doing well and we are excited about her progress! Shalan is doing alright and we are going to keep working with him. This week he asked if he could still smoke so we had to talk about that one but we think he understood!
Also I just had to throw this short story in so that you could here a little bit about what I am going threw lately! So on friday a polynesian elder and a philipino elder were on a tradeoff together. They ended up getting into a little argument over some stupid thing and the poly didn't like it so he tried to put the philipino in a trash can next to the busiest bus stand in St. Lucia so everyone saw it... Life as a Lucian ZL... Ha!
Odellia is really excited for her baptism but I just had to share a story with you! So we have been planning on having the baptism on the 1st of August for quite some time! now they ended up scheduling an all day branch activity on the other side of the island for that day! So we were told that Odellia couldn't do it in the morning but she could do it during the activity, on the other side of the island! So she was disappointed because her dad was going to come but wouldn't be able to come if it was that far. So the branch told her she would just have to do it the next week. Elder Beck and I were ticked! Odellia was devastated! There really wasn't much we could do about it! Then Odellia went to Relief Society and they asked her why the baptism was moved and they got ticked! So they got it all worked out with the branch and now she is getting baptized in the morning before her activity so her Dad can come! She is super excited! It was cool to see the sisters rally around her and get the job done!
Well things are going great! I am loving the work here and we are working hard! I hope all is well at home! I love you all! Have a great week!
With Love,
Elder Smith
