Zoe- Playing Volleyball and Making Contacts!

David's note: Zoe has moved to a new town. It's inland but she get's to the shore once a week.

There´s been some fun stuff this week. One thing is we had exchanged this week, so I went out with Hna. Becar who´s our Hermana Leader in our area and we some good success! 

One thing is that we met an awesome family. We were just walking around and said hi to this family sitting outside and they instantly invited us in and had us sit down. We just introduced ourselves a bit and also gave them the invitation to church and scheduled a new appointment with them in a couple days. They were super nice and it was good. 
Then my companion and I went back two days later and first thing when we walk in the 15 year old girl Ruth says, ¨Church tomorrow at 9 right?!¨ We´re just like ¨Ya it is, glad you remembered¨. And we gave them a little lesson. 
Then Sunday she was at church promptly on time! It´s great! We only had met her 3 days ago but she was so excited to come and she said she really enjoyed Young Women´s and her other classes. I´m super excited to keep working with them!

OK, now for the other exciting part about exchanges with Hna. Becar. We were talking to one of our investigators that we had ran into in the streets. Then his friend comes up and reminds him about volleyball that night and invites us to come too. Hna. Becar´s from California and used to play also so we excepted the offer and at 7 we went and played super competitive volleyball in our skirts with a bunch of Dominican guys and it was SOOOOOOO fun! We both played super great and it was the best game of volleyball I´ve played in forever. This game was LEGIT! I had so much fun for real. And kicked some butt. Anyways we did use it as a good contacting opportunity. Now 35 more guys in this town know that church is Sunday at 9 and that the Mormon Missionaries can play some volleyball for real. It was a miracle to be a companion that day who could and would play that day! 

Also this week I hit 6 months- what the what?! I´m getting old! 

attached a couple of pictures, but nothing excited. I´ll try to do better next week!

Hope all is well!

 P.S. Don´t forget about General Conference everybody! You don´t have to be a member to watch and you´ll be able to hear from some amazing people, some great messages!  If you don´t know where to watch it on TV, you can watch online at this Saturday and Sunday. 

Our rama is broadcasting it in the church in Spanish, English (primarily for Hna. Glauser and I), and for the first time in the area, CREOLE! Such a blessing for all the Haitians to have the opportunity to hear it in their native tongue! So excited!
