Elder Pohl and Elder Spencer are leaving the island. No one new is coming and nobody else is leaving. Elder Pohl is going back home to Canada because he is done with his mission. Woop! And Elder Spencer is leaving for Grenada.
Sister Call and I are staying together!! YAY!!! We are so excited for this upcoming transfer. We know we will be able to do great things.
Yes I am pretty sure I will get to Skype you on Christmas! I am so excited. Jacob will be there right?!
Training is going well. I love Sister Call, she is a great missionary. We have a few new investigators. I will update more on that next week. I have very little time to email this week. I love you so much though!
This week was really good. I just emailed you on Wednesday so you got half of it already haha.
Last night Sister Call and I, plus four of the elders, went to a Seventh Day Adventist church with our investigator Brown for a bible study. Everyone absolutely loved all of us. It was so much fun! They invited us back for next week as well, we are excited to go.
We should have a baptism this Saturday. We are excited for it. Jean Louis is ready and we had a lesson with him yesterday about it. Roger is going to baptize him. It will be amazing.
We are also preparing to start an English class. So if anyone has any tips for that it would be much appreciated haha.
I love everyone and hope you have an excellent week. Love ya mom!

Happy thanksgiving to everyone!
All of us missionaries celebrated thanksgiving on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving instead of Thursday. Our amazing senior couple made the turkey and us missionaries all brought other stuff and had an amazing delicious meal. It was great.
Well I've learned this week if you give a pineapple away it gives you smiles for dayz. We were walking from an appointment in Cay Bay eating floups and we passed a lady that sells fruit. She is super sweet and we talk to her all the time. Then I realized I had never bought a pineapple before!!! So I purchased one and we were on our merry way. Funny story... we were busing to the other side of the island to go to our next appointment and to do some service so I had to carry the pineapple with me the whole way. Let me tell you, it gets heavy after a while. My bag was already full, of course, will all my missionary necessities. Ie: Books of Mormon, pass along cards, the scriptures, snacks (obviously), and other great things. So there was no room in my bag for my lovely pineapple! For about 6 or so hours I was carrying the pineapple. It turned out to be a very good conversation starter oddly enough. As we were walking to the bus that night to get back to Cole Bay I passed a lady waiting at another bus stop. Needless to say, I gave her the pineapple. Best decision I've ever made! The smile on her face was HUGE. She was so grateful for that pineapple. And the gentleman sitting next to her was amazed that I would give away my pineapple. Not sure if people really love pineapples here or what but they were treating it like gold. Good deed for the day: check!
Last week as well, we were doing service for a lady who owns a thrift shop. Her name is Joanna and she is amazing! She is Elder Page and Elder Jones investigator. During the service I invited her to church and told her a little bit about it. She was so excited and said she would come. I also invited her to the ward Christmas party on Saturday and she will be coming to that as well. She had an amazing experience at church and I know that she had been prepared to hear the restored gospel.
We have a baptism this Saturday for an investigator Jean Louis. We are so excited for it!
Zone Conference was on Monday! That was....quite interesting. Lots of learning involved.
We contacted a bunch of awesome people yesterday and are stoked to teach them.
One of the people we contacted actually attends our other investigator named Brown's church. We were helping her carry her heavy suitcase home and she stopped us when we were almost there and asked if we could pray with her right there in the street. So we said we would and we did. It was an amazing experience. We are excited to continue meeting with her.
Great week and we are excited for next one.
Love everyone so much!
Love, Sister Breana Stewart
This week was pretty great!
This week we had the car for a few days because Elder Savard was in Barbados so they didn't need it. It was awesome. We were able to pick Nichaulle up and bring her to lessons with us. We were on fire! It was amazing. We were finally able to meet with Pablo and he basically said he will be a member of the church one day, he just doesn't know when. So that happened.
We went to our investigator Brown's church again on Saturday haha. That was pretty great. He is the Seventh Day Adventist. They all came up and welcomed us just like last time.
He called me Satan during a lesson as well......that was cool....not really. He loves the missionaries coming to teach him but he thinks we are wrong and that we are not on the Lord's side all the time. It is quite interesting.
On Sunday we had visitors from Scotland and the husband called me and Sister Call "Angels". That was the coolest.
Don't have a lot of time this week but I love and miss everyone.
We are eating banana splits as a zone. I will attach a picture.
