H A L L E L U J A H!
The bubble finally dissolved on Sunday afternoon from Dad's eye and we were on a plane the next morning headed from the Dominican Republic to Panama, then to Trinidad, and onto Suriname in ten short hours. We arrived just in time to take care of zone conferences with our missionaries there and then work with members and leaders the next day. We actually took a minute and found a little Dutch cafe that served pannekoeken and poffertjes for breakfast so Dad was in heaven. It really was delicious. Then we came back to the hotel and got caught up with emails until I went out teaching with the sister missionaries and Dad met with the members and leaders for temple recommends, PPI's, etc.
The next morning we were off to Guyana to repeat the same agenda in Georgetown for zone conferences. Yesterday, we drove out to the countryside in Guyana for more leadership meetings. Today, Dad set apart a twenty year old to serve as a branch president! It was really special.He has faith and loves the Lord, but some in the congregation think that a mere child has been called to be their judge in Israel. We are trying to give him the strength and support that he will need to perform the duties that he will have on his plate. Thankfully the Lord qualifies those He calls.
We got back to Georgetown before sunset so we wouldn't run over cows, pigs, horses or PEOPLE that are walking down the middle of the road. Our flight leaves at 6am tomorrow and arrives in Trinidad by 7:45 hopefully am. You never know in the Caribbean when you will depart and arrive for sure.
It has been so great to be with our missionaries again and we are really looking forward to going home for three whole days to take care of zone conferences in Trinidad. Then we head for the ABC islands to do the same there and return home for Thanksgiving week the following Monday night! Can't wait to have Marielle, Conner and McCrae come for TURKEY DAY!
Thank you for all your prayers and love,
Trini and Dad
Always better with your eyes closed!
