I will start off by telling you all that we spent some time this week trying to kill Iguanas and it was a blast haha! The other day, we had four missionaries in total at our apartment and we found an iguana so we got all of the machete in hand and I got like in this bush just waiting to jump on this thing but Elder Ehlert ended up knocking it out of the tree so I had to jump out into the Banana field next to our apartment to chase after this thing and I was sprinting down this hill with my sword in had when I decided that I need to run around this corner but I forgot how steep the hill was and the second I started to slow down my feet flew out from under neath me and the first thing I knew was that I was on my butt sliding down this hill! It didn't feel all to great and the Iguana escaped us haha! It was pretty fun though!
Well that was a pretty awesome week and the weekend was amazing. I don't know where to begin really but I will just start explaining some things. Our teaching pool has been growing quiet a bit and we have been pretty happy to see that! We have been dropping all of the ancient investigators that we had and things seem to progressing. We are still having a hard time in the city of Capesterre but everywhere else seems to be improving quiet a bit! Sunday was awesome and we had two great experiences here in capesterre actually! So we had an appointment set up with our progressing investigator Jean and we invited our Branch President to come while we where at church and he agreed to be there. When it came time to go the the appointment we called President to remind him and he ended up having his daughter tell us he was to tired. Bitter and frustrated we both started the lesson and the spirit wasn't there very strong, about 15 minutes into the lesson President showed up. I felt awful for my unrighteous judgments and for even judging in the first place. I was instantly reminded of laman and lamuel and how quick they were to murmur. Anyways president joined us and we had an awesome lesson and we think he really helped our investigator. Then He invited us to go see our recent convert who is now less active. He hasn't been to church in 3 weeks now so we have been worried about him. We went over with president and we had a fantastic lesson and very spiritual. My respect for president has grown so much and the experience he shared really helped me build a relationship with him. It's really cool how the spirit can bring people together with such an profound love! It was great!
Happy Fathers day out there to all the fathers! I hope everyone has an amazing week and that all is going fantastic! I send my love and prayers to you all! Thanks again!!

So this week was a good week. Nothing really different than the norm happened; besides the fact that my companion achieved a record number of flat tires this week: 3! It doesn't seem like that much, but when you are on the side of a highway as it is pouring rain, it gets really old really fast. It is ok though, we have probably broken the world record for fastest tire change multiple times this week. But who cares right?! And as the subject line suggests, we hunt Iguanas. We have multiple trees around our house were they like to camp out, including a hollow, 50 ft Avocado tree. So when we spot one, we grab this 20 foot hooked piece or metal that we use to hook the Iguana and pull it down and then we run around scared out of our pants because the Iguanas (not small) run straight at you and then sprint for the Avocado tree. And that is where they hide. It is really awesomely fun. The time we get one, we will take a picture of it and the Iguana soup we will make out of it. ;) Well that is it folks for this week. Love you all and I hope you are having a great summer in where ever you may be; because I am having a great 2 year summer. :)
