I just cant believe how time has flown by. I only have a year left :( But all is well here in Boa Vista. The tourists are still as red as ever, and the Africans are still rocking the creole.

This week...We found a lot of new investigators which was seriously great. We needed some great new people.
For Pday today we went to the sand dunes and had a BBQ with our branch pres. and the Elders. It was a lot of fun and it was good to get to know the president better. He has been doing a great job with the branch, and next week we will start haveing three hr church! With all the meetings for all the ages (before it was 2 hrs cause the branch was so small). This little area is growing quickly. I know the Lord has just paved the way for this place to grow in the gospel and I know that this is His work.
I love you all and wish you all the best!

"Mom we are seriously two blocks from this beach. We need to come back and visit ok? ;) "
Fourth of July was so great! My comp is pretty much a pro cook so we eat good ;) For our lunch on the 4th we had the most american meal we could make here in Cabo Verde. Hamburgers, fries, jello, grapes, homemade chocolate doughnuts.
Week one of Transfer 4...TIme is going by way too fast :(
Except from my letter:
"The new area is the bomb! Love it so much. We have so many people we can talk to here which is nice, cause in the other area it was small with few people so we knew close to everyone. WE have AC IN OUR HOUSE!!!!!!! Pai Celestial is really looking out for me right now :) Only problem is we have a few cockroaches here and there in the kitchen but they are the medium sized ones not the chunky large ones. Count your blessings.I love you mom! Tell everyone I love them so much and I cant wait to hear about next week."
Ok, this place is BEAUTIFUL. When the picture thing works out I will send a couple.The church here is really new so we have a branch of 40-50 people with a branch president that got married 2 weeks ago who got off his mission 2 years ago. Real young. But it is cool to see how the church starts and grows into a ward. The members here have really great testimonies and I am exicted to work with them. There are just us two sisters and two elders that work on this island, that means lots and lots of people to find and talk to! :)
