Dear Family,

ABC easy as 123! Well not that easy to travel to all these islands in less than a week when you are dealing with Caribbean airlines that have a very relaxed view of timeliness. This time we at least were not dealing with cancelled flights. We were able to visit all three islands this past week for zone conferences, interviews and member support. Our missionaries are having great success in these islands and the baptisms have already doubled since last year. Their goal is to triple them and we are well on our way. It is very exciting to see recent converts placed in positions of leadership and soar. If any of you know couples that can speak some Spanish and want to serve we have a great missionary experience for them. Both Aruba and Bonaire are in need of a senior couple and we are definitely recruiting!

It's hard to believe that summer is wrapping up for all of you and school will be starting soon. I know the kids have had a great summer according to Instagram at least. Thank you for keeping us in the loop. It makes our day to check social media and see all the good things that are going on back home. We have loved watching the posts and need to start figuring our how to do some of that ourselves. I have been waiting over a year for a good hair day....which won't happen while we are here!

We are busier that we thought was humanly possible. Dad is always available to help any missionary, member and stranger. Our new senior couple has arrived to assume the mission office responsibilities so things are busy with a steep learning curve of training We have really learned the importance being "our brother's keeper." There is always something to do, someone to love, and problems to remedy. We have been blessed to have good health so we can try to keep up with the demands of this calling. WE LOVE YOU!!!

Have a great day,
Trini and Dad
