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
Much Love, Sister Crompton
