This was/is a busy week. We had a transfer (kind of a mid-transfer transfer) where Elder Marae was moved to Granada and Elder Sabin came here to St Martin as a Zone Leader.
We also had a ‘surprise’ visit by President and Sister Herrington. They came for a few days to work with the missionaries, hold some training meetings with the local Branch, and see how things were going.
Zone Meeting, with Elder Moux taking the lead. We all said goodbye to Elder Marae, as he was leaving us.
Brother & Sister Whitehead (newly married!) with Elder Marae. Brother Whitehead was just made the new Branch Mission Leader!
Terri and I with Elder Marae
Elder Sabin (the new Zone Leader) with his companion Elder Moux. We now have two Zone Leaders on St Martin!
We had yet another baptism on Saturday. This is Sissla with Elder Merritt who baptized him. He had Elder Jones give him the Holy Ghost on Sunday.

A crowd gathers after Sissla’s baptism to congratulate him. President and Sister Herrington were able to attend.
President Herrington and President Huggins waiting for Sacrament meeting to begin. Terri and I both spoke on Sunday–Terri spoke on Sacrifice and I spoke on Eternal Marriage (Valentines day and all…). After us Sister Herrington and then President Herrington spoke to the congregation.
The President will stay until Tues, when he is off again; leaving after District Meeting.
