On Monday January 26th all the senior couples flew in from 8 island and 3 countries for a senior conference. We spent three days having training meetings, devotionals, eating delicious food and took a couple of excursions together. It was wonderful to sit and talk to these wonderful, amazing brothers and sisters and share their spirit and the joy of the gospel together. One of the excursions was a trip by boat through the Caroni Swamp where the guide pointed out snakes, bats, owls, birds, and the scarlet Ibis. We are sitting here waiting until dusk for the Scarlet Ibis to fly into an island where they come every night. It was incredible to watch the 1000's of birds come in from every direction and fill the trees with red.
This is Elder and Sister Moore. They are over Humanitarian projects for the entire mission. They work with countries training and placing wheelchairs (Richard knows all about that), building chicken coops with members, teaching sewing and placing sewing machines if people complete the 12 week training course, and placing neonatal units, putting together school kits, hygiene kits, newborn kits, and others that I can't remember what they are. They travel all over the mission.
All the Ladies.
All the men!
There he is way up high.....crazy.
