This has been a most splendid week. I have had many extraordinary moments with my companion. She is such a doll. What a blessing it is that we have the opportunity to serve with each other.
We have been locating many children of God this week and introducing them to the gospel. How I enjoy that.
Sister Rinslisbacher and Sister Johnson thought it was a good idea to prank me this week by filling up a bucket with ice cold water and meandering over to the bathroom, with the goal of pouring it over the shower onto me. Needless to say, they succeeded in their endeavors. I am trying to develop and attitude of sharing, so I felt it a good thing to share the spirit of pranking with them as well. We are unified in this feeling.
Throughout this glorious week we have been laboring hard, not only in preaching the word of God, but also in service to others. We have hiked up and enormous hill to dig holes for pillars to construct a house for Charmella, spontaneously shoveled dirt into a wheelbarrow many times for Jemin, used our newfound muscles to mix cement for the baptism stairs at the church, and many other countless acts of service we have performed with our hands this week as well.
It is indeed the season for rain here on Grenada. I have witnessed outpouring of water from the sky many times this week. The grass is very grateful for the hydration. As we are on the topic of liquid, we have also been sweating a lot more this week due to our hard-work. We have been entering peoples' houses looking as if we have recently been swimming when in fact; we have not been immersed in water in a long time.
My heart is filled with joy at the mention of my friends returning home. I am forever grateful for their righteous desires to serve the lord and dedicate the past year and a half to two years laboring in the vineyard.
Tomorrow we will be entering a conference room at the Radisson resort where we will be holding Zone Conference. Our mission President arrives tomorrow and we are anxiously awaiting his arrival. I am positive this week will be another wonderful experience.
I hope know that I love and miss you dearly and am excited for my arrival home in 4 months. Fear not, the time will go swiftly by.
Sincerely and with love,
Sister Breana Stewart
