The Road is Straight and Narrow ... and With Some Pot Holes

Last Tuesday we ran into our landlady in town and talked for her for a bit.  She mentioned that the road we live on is very bumpy because it's a private road and it doesn't get fixed.  She mentioned that a long time ago when the Elders were living in the apartment and had the truck, they had gone by the beach and gathered sand and rocks and filled in the potholes.  I volunteered us to do it again and she was real excited about it.  So on Saturday, all of us missionaries met up with our landlady and her husband at the beach and collected the materials and then filled in our road.  It was hard work but fun at the same time.

We're still trying to find ways to help with home and visiting teaching.  It's such an important program in the church and fellowshipping is the key to missionary work.

We had District Conference this past Sunday over Skype because our District President is in Guadeloupe.  We got to hear from the Presidency over there, President and Sister Mehr and the Area Seventy Elder Gamiette (who was the previous West Indies Mission President).  The translation made it different but the Spirit speaks the same language.

This week we're hoping to have a baptism.  She is an 11-year old girl.  Her mom recently came back to St. Maarten after living in England for some time.  She's very sweet and we're real excited for her.

That's about it for this week!

Much Love, Sister Crompton
