I am on the island of St. Vincent right now. This is the least developed island in the mission. There is a lot of poverty here. Most of our area is hiking dirt roads, walking through mud, and driving on two lane roads that are really just one lane that they expect two cars to fit on. It is scary sometimes but my companion is doing really well driving. Speaking of hiking....I have a slight problem but I can make it work if needs be. So, the only shoes I have had for the last 6 or so months have been Rasta sandals (that are not really suppose to get wet) and blue Jesus sandals that I brought with me from home(the ones from Hawaii that we all have). My Rasta shoes are currently falling apart and I don't know how much more life they have in them, especially in this area (plus it is wet season) and I have been trying to make my Jesus sandals work but they are bright blue and I had to super glue them back together because they broke. So if there is any way you could add a little bit of money to my card so I can get a pair of shoes that would be much appreciated. They have a small payless here so that is where I will probably go to get them.
But back to my companion. Her name is Sister Bowers! I spelled it wrong last week because of technical difficulties. She is from Utah and is so nice! I LOVE HER!! She has been out for 6 weeks so I am finishing her training.
Our area is huge and since she has only been out for 6 weeks she hasn't been in it too long so it is a bit more difficult. But we are hanging in there and have some really amazing people we are meeting with.
I would love to get pictures in a letter :)
Sadly I did not get the letters before I left Grenada. Sister Rindlisbacher told me she would send them here as soon as they get here so I can get them ASAP so we will see if and when that happens. I am patiently (sort of) waiting for them to arrive.
Obviously church is not run as well here as it was in Grenada. Haha back into the Caribbean style of church. It was good though. I am excited to get to know the people here. I love you and will be sending you and Megan letters tomorrow.
Sorry I don't have a memory card reader anymore, someone stole it last time I was on Barbados. I have been lucky to have companions that have them so I will figure out some way to send you pictures next week. I'll see if one of the other missionaries has one I can borrow. I am going to check my flash drive and see if I have any on there. Love you!
Love, Sister Breana Stewart
