Smoothies and exchanges

The weeks in Guadeloupe seem to have a different emphasis as Sister missionaries from around the mission come for exchanges. This week the Sisters from Guyane came and spent a couple of days. I had the opportunity to work with Soeur Krusher. I have not really had the opportunity to work with her that much…

A bright red Ferrari

As Soeur Holt settles into a new area we struggle to remember all the different people she refers to in her emails. We have to constantly refer back to earlier posts to remind ourselves who everyone is. So with that in mind we will start with an update on three of the people that Soeurs…

Déjà vu

Soeur Holt said goodbye to French Guiana and returned to Guadeloupe this week. So here we are again sat at the computers in Baie Mahault, the entire week seems to be haunted by a feeling of déjà vu, highlighted by the fact that yesterday evening we contacted a Jehovah’s Witness lady who remembered me from…

When you want me but no longer need me then I must go.

This week has been a wonderful week full of miracles in finding efforts and people we are teaching progressing. I was reminded of a quote from Nanny Mcphee where she says that when you want me but no longer need me then I must go. This is especially true as I received my transfer call….

Bonne Annee!!

As we celebrated New Year’s Day this week the event that we are most excited for in 2018 is when Soeur Holt returns home. Although we know she is where she needs to be, it will be lovely to be with her again. While we’re focussed on this the only mention of anything to do…

Who knew my northerness could come in handy on my mission?

First off the coming week’s big news is that my little brother is turning 16!! Happy happy birthday Gideon, I love you and hope that you have a great birthday and are thoroughly spoilt!! It’s always hard for Soeur Holt to be away for important family events, but we are so glad she is where…

What a difference a week makes!

The phrase what a difference a week makes comes into mind; this week after the trials of last, we finally saw the fruits of our diligence and efforts. We now have two people who are working towards baptism. One is a young lady who the Elders used to teach but they felt that we can…

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…
