20 Apr 2010

Well i had a great week! Sorry i was not able to e mail very much last week, we had kind of a crazy day that day. But yes we survived transfers and everything worked out fine without any major problems. I got all of the Cards, thank you so much! that was really awesome! You guys are the best, My companion was laughing at dads remarks on the card. My new Companion is Elder Cascardi, he is from Sao Paulo Brazil. ha so i have my first foreign companion. He is really great! We are going to have a great time together. we have all ready lived together for 3 months in Jamaica. So we are all ready great friends. He is also my first companion that actually speaks Spanish(and Portuguese) And we are working both the English and Spanish Wards now, So i am really working on my Spanish.. Hopefully i will be able to pick up on it really fast, pray that i will be able to! We have some good people that will be coming to the Spanish ward. We have a lady named Maria ( i don't know if i have talked about her before) But she is really awesome! Her husband is from Haiti and she if from Dominican Republic. Well basically we fearlessed Harry(her husband) about 2 weeks ago and made an appointment with him. we met with them both a few times and to make a long story short it turned out that Harry was not really interested and was lying to us about a lot of things, But Maria really is. So she called us and we met with her and she told us that she had been reading from the Book of Mormon, she read from the beginning all the way to 2 Nephi 16 in like 2 days! So that was really awesome! We are really excited for her, she wants to be baptized soon. The work is going well, we are just trying to build up a good teaching pool, we are trying to work with the members a lot. I love being a missionary! and i love this Gospel and my Saviour. I hope that everything is going great!

Love you guys
Elder Olsen
