Elder Cox is now an Assistant to President Herrington. We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Elder Cox in Tobago and St. Vincent. I love this young man and am always glad to see his happy smile. He is an amazing young man and I wish I had a daughter to line him up with. He was proud of his sandwich wrap tower. The beautiful kitchen of the mission home is pictured in the background.
Sister Richmond (in the yellow shirt) celebrated her birthday with us. She and her husband serve on the French side of the mission in Guadeloupe. Elder Broadbent, the other assistant to the President, takes care of the French side of the mission and during the conference was the Richmond's interpreter. Elder and Sister Clawson also are on the French side in St. Martin. Brother Clawson handles anything involving cars in the mission. Sister Clawson (pink shirt) is the medical person for our mission and the Trinidad and Tobago mission. She is one busy lady getting calls all hours of the day from missionaries with sickness, allergies, broken bones....you name it, she handles it. She is amazing.
Elder and Sister Horne serve in St. Lucia. They are standing in front of a simple water filtration system used when George Washington visited Barbados. As one of our excursions we visited the home George Washington stayed in with his brother who had tuberculosis. While George Washington was in Barbados, he contracted small pox. Barbados claims that getting sick here changed his career because he had immunity from the disease when many soldiers were dying from small pox during the Revolutionary War. The Hornes have the largest group of missionaries on an island in the mission, 24 missionaries right now. Brother Horne is also the branch president in their branch. This is their second mission. They served in Brazil about 10 years ago.
.......with President and Sister Herrington.
