Day of Service

Well this week was pretty exciting.  It was the International Day of Service for church members in the Caribbean.  We were fortunate to volunteer for two different projects.  We helped finish painting an Elementary school (some of the primary kids actually attend the school) and we also picked up some trash on one of the beaches to help out with the nature foundation.
The beach needed some cleaning to help out with the turtles who've been nesting for some time, and the trash was in the way of them getting to the ocean when they hatch.  I came late so I only saw one little turtle, but it was cool to see how they just go straight into the ocean when they hatch.
It was great to see us come together and the members here are quite amazing.  We'll be going off to Guadeloupe in a little bit for zone conference, so I don't have much time.
Much Love,
Sister Crompton
