Helping Out

 We received a directive from the church that all churches in the Carribean area were to remove the fridges from their buildings by May 30 and give them to a family in need.  By doing this, the church would save $500,000 in electricity bills per year.  There were plenty of families in the branch who could have benefited from a new fridge but the ward council picked the Timothy family.  Sister Timothy is a single mother with 6 children.  She is pictured with Elder Goddard, her oldest son Niccoli, and Elders Hendricks and Evans just after delivery.
 Brother Festus Chadband needed some help at his home in Black Rock.  We did a ward activity on a Saturday morning and helped inside and out.  Elder Henricks, Evans and Aaron helped collect all the glass bottles which will be taken to recycling for income for Bro. Chadband.  We also gathered and burned trash.

 Brothers.....Renaldo and Christian.....being silly.

 Elder Goddard was cleaning up underneath the house and found some interesting things.  

 While we were there a neighbor came and picked mangos from a nearby tree and departed carrying them in a bucket on her head.
 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.
