Finding comfort and answers in the Book of Mormon

This week has been a hard one! We only have one family left that we are teaching. This left room for me to really turn to the scriptures. I had a really amazing experience where I asked Heavenly Father during my opening prayer specific questions of the soul and got exact responses through what I…

A week of goodbyes (and a very important hello)!

This past week was one of goodbyes (and a very important hello)! The week started off simply enough with a trip to the airport in order to say goodbye to Elders Manasonga and Ballard who were finishing their two years. I don’t think I will ever get used to saying goodbye as a missionary- it…

Two eggs: a lesson in charity

  Some of you may have heard about the threat of Hurricane Irma. Although French Guiana is not in the hurricane’s path we pray for all the people of the Caribbean. We received the following message from the Herringtons: “The direction of the hurricane changes from day to day so for right now, St Maarten…

Bed bugs!!!!

Oh my goodness! As we left off last week Soeur Hansen was poorly- this meant that p-day was a quiet one because Soeur Hansen was still feeling really sick. Tuesday morning Soeur Hansen woke up feeling rotten so she slept whilst I did studies. On leaving the house though we noticed that she had a…

I would walk five hundred miles!!!

How many cakes can two Sister missionaries make?

Such a busy week for Soeurs Holt and Hansen but it began with a chilled p-day. So last pday was my first without having to rely on other people/sisters for taking me here there and everywhere so we took it really slow and relaxed!! We started out the day by making eggs and hash browns…

It’s goodbye to Guadeloupe and hello to Guyane!!

Last Monday when Soeur Holt emailed us she was still in Guadeloupe and making preparations to leave for Guyane on the Wednesday. Although it was the first move for Soeur Holt it was the last one of her mission for Soeur Needs- as she was flying home on the Wednesday. Due to this, their pday…

French Guiana

Last we left her, we knew that Soeur Holt was going to be moving, but we hadn’t said where! Yes- so the biggest news of the week is that we received transfer calls Saturday night and I will be heading down to French Guiana to serve with Soeur Hansen (I know mummy- that you and…
