Week #30 The week I went to Hell and back….

dscn3313Heyhey!

So last p-day we went to Hell. Yup, Hell. In Cayman there is a place that we have as a tourist attraction that is called Hell which is a place where the rock formation looks like what you would expect Hell to look like! It’s pretty creepy looking! Hell also had a gift shop and a post office haha! Living the life man.

This week was an alright week. Nothing too exciting happened except for the fact that IT HAS BEEN CLOUDY AND RAINY FOR THE PAST 3ish DAYS! It has been amazing. Usually Cayman is hot like a fiyah but lately it has been so cool. It has been lovely. Absolutely lovely. Rain rain please don’t go away.

We had zone meeting this week which was fun, but weird because it was on Skype… I miss getting to see my zone each week, in person. Oh man #OffIslandZoneProblems

We are working really hard on finding new investigators to teach. I am absolutely loving being companions with Sister Wright. Even though I am the “Trainer” I swear she is training me. She came “pre-trained”. I love my companion! I actually just realized that three of my dear friends from back home are training right now. Shout out to Elder Blake Walker and Elder Austin Tautu! Man we are all training together. How crazy cool is that? 🙂

Steve is my favorite! He is loving the gospel. He knows that it is true. He really wants to get baptized. Pray for him this week please. He knows that this gospel is true. It is a miracle that we found him. Steve has changed my life, I swear we were “pre-mortal friends”. He is doing so great.

Oh we also happened to walk into the Bodden’s yard to see how they were doing, and what do we see Brother Bodden do? Peeling an IGUANA. We have a TON of iguanas here, they are so gross. And it is a thing to eat iguana here. I have tried turtle, cow foot, chicken foot and manish water but no way am I going to try iguana. GROSS.

Yea, the work is going great here. I am loving being a missionary! Pray for Baltimore and Napal. We heard about all of the riots going on in Baltimore and about the earthquake in Napal. Pray for peace. Christ must be coming soon.

I am in 3 Nephi with my personal studies and I love what I have been reading. I just finished reading the chapters about Christ coming to the Americas. Wow, talk about powerful. I love how he his about to leave when he looks around and the multitude is in tears, “as if they would ask him to tarry a little longer with them”. He goes on to bless all the sick and afflicted. Then he asks for the little children. We all know that Jesus Christ loves children. What is said next is so profound,
13 And it came to pass that when they had all been brought, and Jesus stood in the midst, he commanded the multitude that they should kneel down upon the ground.

14 And it came to pass that when they had knelt upon the ground, Jesus groaned within himself, and said: Father, I am troubled because of the wickedness of the people of the house of Israel.

15 And when he had said these words, he himself alsoknelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written, and the multitude did bear record who heard him.

16 And after this manner do they bear record: The eyehath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father;

17 And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father.

18 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying unto the Father, he arose; but so great was thejoy of the multitude that they were overcome.

19 And it came to pass that Jesus spake unto them, and bade them arise.

20 And they arose from the earth, and he said unto them: Blessed are ye because of your faith. And now behold, my joy is full.

21 And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.

22 And when he had done this he wept again;

23 And he spake unto the multitude, and said unto them: Behold your little ones.

24 And as they looked to behold they cast their eyes towards heaven, and they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they came down and encircled those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angels did minister unto them.

I just love how they couldn’t write what they saw because it was so spiritual. And I love how the angels came down and ministered to the little children. I just loved those chapters! My testimony was increased so incredibly much that God really does live and that Jesus is the Christ.

I love this work.

Love,
Sister Garrett
