Boston Week 6 (email sent 2/6)

Hello everyone!

This week has been awesome! The sister's training was amazing. It started at 9 AM and we didn't get home until 11 PM. We were exhausted. We just had a bunch of different trainings on stuff like studies, planning, health, just different aspects of the mission and then we went and had dinner at president's house and he announced to us all the new areas for sisters this next transfer. We have a lot of history making stuff going on. He opened Nantucket and is sending sisters there. It only has 5 members on the whole island, and it takes 2 hours to get there by boat. Since they don't have enough for a branch yet they are called a group. Who knew that you could be too small to be a branch? They are also opening the first ever area for Portuguese sisters We have only ever had Portuguese elders here, but now they are starting to call sisters too. I don't know if I ever told you but we have english, spanish, portuguese, and haitian creole missions here. We used  to have cambodian too but that kind of died out. It is a very diverse place here. We had a baptism this week! Technically the Elders were teaching him but he is the husband of a member we see every week for dinner. He just got out of prison and had read the entire bible in the 6 months he was there. He came to us and said he wanted to be baptized. It was awesome. He is getting confirmed this sunday. Also this sunday is the baptism of Jose Antonio who I've told you about before and next wednesday we have one for a girl named stacy who is a 9 year old of a less active member. So this week is going to be great! I hope you are all doing well! I'll talk to you soon! 

Con Amor,
Hermana Jacobsen
