Hello y'all and Happy Valentine's Day!
Big news from the week is that I am transferring to South Bay and my new companion will be Elder Prince! South Bay is like the promised land of Creole so I am excited to go! Elder Murat was transferred to Fort Myers and will serving as a Zone Leader.
Because of this I will just give you the brief highlights from the week!
This week we knocked a lot and did some service. We also had Zone training on Tuesday and learned more concerning our full-time and part-time Jobs as missionaries. On Sunday Jacques was sustained as a ward missionary which is exciting! Later Jacques called us and asked us to come over to say a special prayer with him. We thought he might want a blessing or something. But when we got there he showed us some important papers he had found. They are the deeds to some land his family owns in Haiti that he thought were lost. They are worth a lot of money to him and his family. He was so excited that he found them that he was shadow boxing and hugging us. He asked us to say a special prayer of thanks to Heavenly Father with him. It was awesome!
Also President Hoopes who is in our ward pulled us aside and let us know that we should say some goodbyes! So we did say lots of goodbyes on Sunday and yesterday. This morning our Hurricane warning siren went off so we went to our bathroom and chilled in there for a while until the storm passed. We did our personal study while we were huddled in there. The storm flooded Hollywood and knocked down tons of trees, but we are safe!
Last thought will be short, "And now, because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters; for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters.And under this head ye are made free, and there is no other head whereby ye can be made free. There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives. And it shall come to pass that whosoever doeth this shall be found at the right hand of God, for he shall know the name by which he is called; for he shall be called by the name of Christ. And now it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall not take upon him the name of Christ must be called by some other name; therefore, he findeth himself on the lefthand of God." (Mosiah 5:7-10)
Always remember whose name you bear.
Love you guys have a great week!

The Storm on their last day in Hollywood bringing tornado force winds.
They huddled in the bathroom for personal study, while the hurricane sirens were going off.
The storm blew down lots of trees and caused some flooding.
I love how Hollywood is completely in the red. Red is bad. :(
