We were finally able to make the one hour drive to Roxborough and the home of Sister Dookran.  I can hear you saying....the island is only 27 miles long and 6 miles wide.  Why does it take an hour to go only partway up the east side of the island?  The road has more bends and turns and zig zags than the road to Hana on Maui, Hawaii. and twice as narrow.  Elder Harding was driving fast and it still too forever.  Sister Dookran and her family make  this one hour drive every Sunday to come to church.  They are there faithfully.  We have come to really love this stalwart pioneer family.  We must hike through the jungle to get to their home.  
We walk with grandson, Malcom David Fillafona, coming home from school.  

 Sister, Madonna Adonna Fillafona joins us.  I love their names.

 Elder Harding, Linda Kissoon and her husband Aroon and son Adesh, Madonna, and Elder Horsley.
 Their home has no electricity and no water.  The only water they have is from a small water tank just outside their kitchen window that collects the rain water for drinking.
 Avocados grow really large here!
