April 1st was the day the Tobago Branch began 8 years ago with the baptism of Patrick and Pamela Ramkissoon. So in honor of that event we planned with the branch council a celebration that would focus on reaching out to the in-actives and the members non-member friends. We thought the movie "Meet The Mormons" would be a good way to introduce neighbors and friends to the church. We began planning in December and started out with grand ideas....inviting the Prime minister of Tobago and other important people. Each month the plans were scaled back. The final plan was for a short meeting, then the movie and then refreshments. The day of the celebration our key speaker couldn't come. At 3:00 p.m. when everything was to start we had 8 people.....6 missionaries and the Georges. A bit disappointing even though we had delivered 100's of invitations. By the time we started the movie there were about 30 members. Sister Cupid was the only one who brought an investigator. Although everything didn't go as expected and was not as grand as first hoped, those who came did enjoy themselves.
Sister George's decorations were beautiful.
Ready for the movie, which I love so much!
Brother George was baptized in 2010.
The Baynes girls also have grown up in the church.
Sister Cupid's and Sister Francene George's beautiful snack pack of goodies for our dinner. They cooked and baked all week.
The food master minds!
