Greetings from Guyana

Dear all,

Rachel and Sandra's son, Terry, got baptized on Saturday. It was so cool to see Rachel finally get baptized. After the baptism Rachel told us that she couldn't feel any pain which she had felt before the baptism. Elder Williams, my companion, baptized her and I got to do the confirmation on Sunday.

The Branch Choir sang for the first time on Sunday. It was pretty good. I was impressed. The branch enjoyed it and the people really like coming to choir practice. We started singing a new piece on Sunday, Abide with me 'tis even tide. I am excited for the choir to sing that in sacrament meeting soon.

Oh, we are teaching a girl and her grandmother. The girl is 10 years old and really cute. She's really nice and I guess she likes me. During the lesson yesterday she sat there looking at me and at the end of the lesson she finally asked, ''Why are you so white?'' I had to laugh a little and said, ''Because I was born that way.'' She asked, if I was from Guyana. I told her that I wasn't, but that I was from Europe. Then she asked, ''Will you take me to show me Europe some day?'' I told her that I would try to get her some pictures. I just thought that was funny. Her name is Cadesa. She should be getting baptized on Saturday.

I also know a girl that reminds me of Amy. Her name is Sheena. Maybe amy could write her a little letter. I showed her a picture of Amy, so she already knows who she is. She 's really nice and she is just like Amy in many ways. She's 11 years old.

So, I am doing really well. Take Care.
