as for jacob kory and jake ya otta read with then first nephi 4: 30- 35 and talk to them about how nephi saved the servant of laban from being lost and thing and then turn to 2 nephi 1 30- the end of the chapter and teach them that because nephi grabed him that he and his posterety will be blessed and we see throught history that they were blessed as long as they stayed faithful! also get them involved kory will come if it is something fun maybe a camping trip or something same with jake colyer for jacob i just want you to tell him how much i love and appreciate him in being such a great example to me and always being willing to go out and have some fun with me even though he didnt see the fun in it! he is really an amazing guy! 

the last couple weeks have been chaos but good its not to usual for us to blank an area but sometimes due to different sircumstances the lord sees fit to do so! i feel after talkin to the bishop it is that the lord wants us to get the members involved! and frankly i need to learn just how to do that! there is a member here who served with mike neson in florida and he is awesome his name is Naresh sookhan he is really cool and i hope we will be able to work with him a bit to really get the members excited about the work! also what the west indies mission is focusing on is whats called a house meeting which is just that its just like fhe but on different days of the week! there fantastic we will be starting one here shortly.

this first picture is the baptism that we had a coulpe weeks ago of mia kong she is the girl in the middle she is 11 years old and her baptism reactivated her whole family who have not been to church for several years! it was awesome! :) the second one is the baptism of andrea Blair and kenroy her husblan was baptized in december and tonya kenroys daughter went to guyana shortly after that and will be gettin baptized soon and hopefully going on a mission! the blair family is awesome they remind me alot of our family they have a 7 year old daughter zipporia who is just so funny! they are awesome!!!! its been great here i truly love life and i love being a missionary! just last night my companion and i were walkin back to our appartment around 7:15 which is supper early for us but we had noone to go visit i was kinda frusterated and so i said a prayer asking heavenly father to fill our time! now i knew heavenly father answeres prayers but that quick?? as soon as i asked for his help i felt like ella enchanted my body turned right down the street that is parallel to the one our apartment is on and as we walked a ways i saw a lady sitting against a tree almost in tears she was just so vexed at life and could not take it any more i immedatly raddled off the first part of the restoration about god is our loveing heavenly father and spent just a short time with her and at the end of the 10 min lesson she was so much more relaxed and at ease and she told us how her husband had died a couple years ago and her 5 kids were father less and it was was such a great experince! low and behold the lord promped me to keep goin up that street and go over to our street on the next one and we met some great people up there and needless to say we were almost late by the time we got home it was such a cool Experience! the lord will help us he is just waiting for us to truly ask with real intent to follow!! Love ya Love eder Hazlett

this week was another baptism i wish i could send pictures but today we desided to be a very adventurous and asked our mission president if we could go ziplining and he said that it was fine! and man was it a cool Experience it was really inderesting not being apart of a safty speach and not really knowing what we were doing  and i realized that every person that we walk by are trying to go down the zip line and there just spinning in circles and we are here to provide the help and to show them the proper way! they may screw up sometimes but they will get it and perfect it! its great having the missionary mentality relating things we do to the gospel! i love it! yes the baptism this week was a lady named andrea and she is solid she does hair and her husband is so humble and willing to learn! he will be a leader soon! he was baptized in december and was able to baptize here it was one of the best baptism's i have attended! anyways im sorry i dont have much time traffic was nuts it took us 2 hours to travel 5 miles! haha anyways i love you all so much! keep up the faith and thanks for the inspiring words!

second nephi 9:39 if we keep the councel of the prophets ans smile because we are spiritually minded then we are truly doing whats right! i know this gospel is true! the success this week is we had a baptism of Mia Kong who is 11 years old and her family went less active when she was 7 and so she didnt get the chance to be baptized it was anamazing experience to see the change in her family her mom and two brothers marcus and malcolm both were ordained priests in the aaronic Priesthood and it was really amazing to see the change of heart they went threw as they were fllowshiped back into the church! i love this gospel so much! that was probably the highlight of our week! i cannot believe how fast time is going by! if you think about it i would be getting home in two weeks from now how rediculos is that! supper fast time has flown! on that note david archuletta is gettin home soon i bet the girls are super happy and excited! hahaha any ways how is the water lookin for this summer? did dad get rid of the blue and green buses yet? if not we should pull one of the motors out and pit i in the green weenie! its the same maker so im sure it would fit! haha just somethin i thought of randomly this week i promis i am not home sick! thats just how i think! lol! any ways other than that we are movin into a new apartment! it sceems that i am always moving something around haha i guess that is something the lord has blessed me with the ability to move stuff! haha o well its fun! My companion and we had two inestigators at church on sunday and we have a baptism this week thursday hopefully two andrea is for sure and tonya is still skeptable but she is totally ready! they both know that the church is true they just need to do it and feel the spirit with them! i love this gospel and i know the church is true!

Hey Everyone!! Its been a Crazy week. So far its Wednesday and we have not taught a single lesson lol its great! we were stuck inside for carnival because its basically like a big drunk person party all thought town so ya but luckily we got permission to go to the church to an activity so we spent the days there playing with everyone and having a great time playing games and bbq it was awesome! also if you have ever played or heard of a game called risk ware you take over the world ya i totally dominated yesterday using helimen's strategy of protect then take over hahaha it was great! 

anyways the most frustrating part of missionary work of coarse is the computer stuff! i wish everyone had the same computer and it was set up the same way! but it never is! lol o well ill figure it out eventually maybe. I am so thankful for the patience that i have acquired over the few months and the ability to get over my pride and be able to serve more fully and way more effective! i love it here! and i found out something that i need to do!!! district meeting was today and we learned about how to study! and of coarse i applied it to the river and i remembered something that Sarah said to me one time! she said you really loved your mission! because you talk about it all the time! and so i figured out what i need to do is make the scriptures my river and get to know them as well as i know the river! so that's what i am going to be doing as i study ill be paying close attention to things just like i would be if i was dropin into the big drops! and as i do that i know the lord will bless me for doing that! now hopefully i will go on the scriptures more than on the river! it aint no seasonal thing!
thats what i am doing!!!! this week! hope everything is going well with you all over there i love you all and i hope you have a fantastic week! love Elder Hazlett
