Gros bisous!! [Big kisses]

The path of a missionary does not always run smoothly. Soeur Holt described this week as a difficult week. As we read through her email we recognised that it was actually a good week for over 95% of the time, but when something happens it can change your outlook so dramatically. A couple of people…

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.

The best laid plans…

The best laid plans and all of that! Sometimes the missionaries have everything in place and a spanner is thrown into the works. This past week it was their pday where they tried to go to a historical site that was supposed to be really cool but was actually closed so I used the mentality…

Staying in Abymes

The big news of this week is transfer news!! I am staying in Abymes with Soeur Tepapatahi and I am so happy I really thought that I was leaving and I really didn’t want to; we both screamed down the phone at the APs (Assistants to the President) when we got the news. The next transfers…
