It's Christmas time and instead of snow we get rain!! Lots of it! But it has been a good week in French Guyane. We didn't have a baptism this week because we moved it to next Saturday. Now we have more time to help them be fully prepared to make the important covenants of baptism. They (the Tavares children) have been studying.
In other exciting news we had district conference this weekend, we skyped into it because it was in Guadeloupe. We found out that as of July 2015 we will no longer be the West Indies Mission, the Mission is splitting!!! We will be in the Barbados Bridgetown Mission consisting of the islands north of Trinidad and French Guyane. the Trinidad Port of Spain Mission will consist of Trinidad, Suriname, Guyana and the ABC islands. So I will be serving in a different mission in July, the West Indies will be no more.We will also have a different mission president because the Mehrs finish their mission in July as well.
It's almost Christmas! Wow, Time flies! I'm coming up on my 5 month mark. One of the cool things we are doing for the Christmas season is we have been handing out pass along cards for the new Christmas Mormon Message "He is the Gift." If you have not already watched it go watch it now. It is a beautiful reminder that Christ is the reason we celebrate Christmas and that he is the greatest gift that we have ever received.
I love you all and have a good week before Christmas!
