1 month - 23 to go!

    This first month has gone by so fast I can''t even believe it!
So my first week here in Jamaica was super amazing.
I have learned so much, but have so much to learn.
I love our investigators, they are super nice and well committed.
My companion Elder Smith is doing a great job at being the worlds best trainer.
The spirit is so strong in him that it is beginning to rub off on me.
Ever since I lost my wallet we haven't had really any money.
So this week we lived off of rice, vegetables, and oatmeal. Not very exciting.
It will be better this week because I am thankful for everything that I have.
I had to borrow a bike for last week and this this week so that is good.
But the first week I was rubbed raw cause of the bicycle seat. 
It is getting better though.
    Our lessons have been getting better and better.
I was a little rusty at first but I am starting to get the hang of things.
The weather here is beautiful, but I am always hot.
I am always sweating and basically sopping wet. I love the heat though.
    I pray for you guys every night.
I had my first real Jamaican food though on Saturday
They love fried chicken so that's what I got and it was delicious.
Things can get hard here at times, but that's how it is going to be. 
The stronger man finishes to the end.
But with our living conditions we need to clean the house haha.
It is not just our house but everywhere you have bugs no matter what.
So today we will clean until they are all gone.
I have seen a couple of cockroaches, and they are so freaking fast.
One of them even had wings.  I think we lost one of them too so thats not to good.  But as we were daily planning last night I was smacking all the ants on my work desk and there just so happened to be a pin up right, and I smacked right down on top of it.   I'm pretty sure it went halfway through my hand.
    I'm trying to get pics to you guys but it is hard because of how busy we are.
I am excited to continue to share the gospel with those in Jamaica.
I absolutely love it here.
Thank you everyone for your love and support, I miss you all so much!
I love you!
