A little gecko decided to join us on our trip to La Soufrier.
The four hour hike begins here.
Sister Tongi prepares all the cameras for a group shot.
Can you see something on the leaf?
I thought hiking up the mountain was bad, it was worse coming back down. My legs were shot.
Don't we look lovely? Our hair and clothes were soaked with sweat. It ended up being a 5 hour hike.
Spent Sunday morning at the hospital. We had four members here. Sister Dookran and her daughter Linda were in a car accident traveling to church. Linda, pictured below had just seen the doctor and was ok except for bruises and soreness. While they were seeing the doctor I had the privilege of holding Adesh while he took a nap. I had to get a picture because he would never have let me hold him had he been awake. He is a darling boy that I love to see every Sunday. The Dookrans travel from Roxborough every week. It takes over an hour to make the trip, but they are there faithfully.
Christian, wearing the mask, and Brother Chadband burning debris.
Brothers.....Renaldo and Christian.....being silly.
Elder Goddard was cleaning up underneath the house and found some interesting things.
This back area of the house needs to be torn down and people are discussing what to do next.
Inside, Renaldo, Sister Cupid and Sister Camejo help out by scrubbing walls.
Gathering up the tools to leave. We spent about three hours cleaning the yard and house.

Elder Cox is being transferred to St. Vincent. :) In a week we will see him there as we continue traveling back and forth between Tobago and St. Vincent. left to right: Sister Graziano, Sister Norris, Elder Cox, and Elder Evans.
A moment to contemplate.....did I do my best while I was here? Could I have done more?
Something we all ask ourselves as we are transferred.
It is the dry season in Tobago. Everything has gone from lush green to looking very brown and dead. It is spring here but it reminds me of Utah in the fall. The grass is brown and the trees are all losing their leaves. We came home and discovered this fire right on the golf course near our house. The landscapers and manager of the golf course turned on their sprinkler system to fight the fire. The golf course is about the only place in Tobago that has a sprinkler system, but they rarely turn it on. It is so dry, even the grass was burning.
We hope it will start raining soon!!!
