week 89


So i have safely made my way back to Martinique.  Leaving Guadeloupe was really difficult a lot harder than i thought it was going to be.  Like it felt a lot like Guyane i really loved my time on Guadeloupe and im going to miss all the missionaires there a lot.

It was really weird coming back to Martinique.  Trinité was the area i spent the least amount of time in just because it was so far away.  ill just do a brief overview of the group
La famille Lagrand is the heart and soul of the group.  Super solid family they make up 7 of the members who attend church out here.  Frere Lagrand is the group leader and has been for a long time.  He works with us a bunch and yeah his family is super cool i like them a lot already.
La Famille Laquembe its an old couple the husband claims he was the first black male to receive the priesthood in france so someone look that up.  They served a mission in haiti and have been long time members.  From what i collect they are very quick to offend members and several members have left because they tell it how it is.  When i told them there was a possibility of the group shutting down they almost ripped my head off but it got them fired up and now there working hard to get people to church. 
Soeur Anthony  Shes St Lucian so she talks english but has got fairly decent french too.  Shes got a mentally challenged son named Jean Jean that comes to church too and passes the sacrement, its really sweet actually.
Soeur Denise is a single women she teaches sunday school and is on top of things.
Ricardo is a 25 year old guy, we broke into his house, he plays video games all day and when he makes it to church just kind of sleeps.
This last week we got 16 people total at church which tied the record for Elder Brimhalls time out here in Trinité.  The ultimate goal is this transfer to break 20 and to baptize.  Its been about a year since the last baptism here. 
The area is super beautiful probably the prettiest on french side, im actually REALLY enjoying the nice quiet missionary life, my comp is a stud state champ wrestler, and against all odds i think im going to really love trinité.
