Well there's not that much news this week. First I would like to give a shout out to Carol Baker for the letter. I didn't know I could still get letters from DearElder.com -- so that was a nice surprise!
This week it rained really hard for the first time since I've been in St.Maarten. The roads aren't really made for rain, so it felt like we were flooded even though it rained for a short time. It made me a little nervous, however, to think what it would be like if a hurricane came through. Luckily we're near the end of hurricane season.
On Saturday we had a branch talent show. Because -- as missionaries -- our talent is sharing the gospel, we just did a little skit on "Things that West Indies Missionaries Say." It was funny (well at least us missionaries thought so, haha). But it was really great. We had 3 of our investigators come. Earlier that day we also met a Sister (former Sister Kelsch) who served here just 6 months ago. She happened to be on her honeymoon and the cruise ship stopped here for a day. It was really nice to talk to another West Indies Mission sister because we are so rare :)
We've been having some good beginnings with member referrals and we are excited for what lies ahead these next coming weeks. Next week we'll be going to Guadeloupe for Zone Conference so I can't promise there will be a post next Monday (not that many people actually read this, haha)

(Editor's Note: Sister Crompton indicated that she would be forwarding other photos to accompany this update, including some of the talent show ... but it appears that the attempt to load those photos into her Dropbox account was not successful. Therefore, I will update this blog by adding those photos when they become available in the near future.)
