Loving St. Lucia

Good Morning,

Poor Sister Hodge got Chickunguyna.  She has been sick since Friday and has been resting a lot.  Hopefully she gets better soon and I don't get it.

There were a few activities at the church this week.  The Relief Society had a baking activity where Sister Gubler came and demonstrated how to bake cookies.  It was a lot of fun.  Then on Saturday we had branch Karaoke.  It was also fun.  A lot of people came and sang.  I love how close the branch is.  They are like family and are very united.

Even though Sister Hodge was sick we still got some good lessons earlier during the week.  Wee showed the Restoration movie to scuba man, Victor.  He loved it and was smiling the whole time.  He said "interesting" a lot.  Then he said the movie made him happy and brightened his day.  He is one funny man.  He loves learning about the gospel.  We also had some great lessons with Kisha''s family.  They are such a great family and want to progress.  They just have some family challenges to overcome.  she wants her son to be baptized but he lives with his dad and is only with her on the weekends.  We can work with that.  We saw George the Fisherman at his Fish Shack.  He gave us another fish, let us each have a bake, and gave us...octopus soup.  It was chewy and delicious.

Miracle of the Week:  Niki.  We met Niki about a week ago at her friends house.  She is about thirty and has a son.  She was very interested in the Book of Mormon and the Plan of Salvation.  Last week we taught her about the Plan of Salvation and life after death.  She said it brought her a lot of comfort.  We asked her if she would be baptized if she came to know that what we share is true and she said yes.  We were not able to see her this week but we called.  She read from the Book of Mormon and loved it.  She is amazing.

Thanks for everything you all do.  I love being here in St. Lucia.  The people are amazing and I love te4aching them the gospel and helping them live it.
