To infinity and beyond!!!

We’ll begin with an out of this world p-day last week. We made the hour drive and headed over to Korou to visit the European Space Centre, this is the place that nearly all of the rockets from the European Union are launched because of the perfect global position of French Guiana. In the blog…

How many cakes can two Sister missionaries make?

Such a busy week for Soeurs Holt and Hansen but it began with a chilled p-day. So last pday was my first without having to rely on other people/sisters for taking me here there and everywhere so we took it really slow and relaxed!! We started out the day by making eggs and hash browns…

It’s goodbye to Guadeloupe and hello to Guyane!!

Last Monday when Soeur Holt emailed us she was still in Guadeloupe and making preparations to leave for Guyane on the Wednesday. Although it was the first move for Soeur Holt it was the last one of her mission for Soeur Needs- as she was flying home on the Wednesday. Due to this, their pday…

French Guiana

Last we left her, we knew that Soeur Holt was going to be moving, but we hadn’t said where! Yes- so the biggest news of the week is that we received transfer calls Saturday night and I will be heading down to French Guiana to serve with Soeur Hansen (I know mummy- that you and…

The best laid plans…

The best laid plans and all of that! Sometimes the missionaries have everything in place and a spanner is thrown into the works. This past week it was their pday where they tried to go to a historical site that was supposed to be really cool but was actually closed so I used the mentality…

Bonjour tout le monde!

This week Soeur Holt got slightly trunky I have to say! Trunky is a colloquial term for a little bit home sick, or missing home. The reason? One of our very close family friends (so close that our children grew up thinking the Teal children were their cousins) got married. It’s the first major event…

We met Tom Jones’ mum!

The time goes so fast… every week is crammed for Soeur Holt and those she serves with. We were shocked this week because p-day wasn’t spent playing ultimate Frisbee but the Sisters all went to the zoo; so cool all of the animals are from this area of the world and because of that the cages…

Cream Crackers and Condensed Milk

Soeur Holt believes she now knows… why I was called to preach the gospel in another language– she had been studying 1 Corinthians 14.19 which suggests we speak 5 words rather than 10000. In English I think I would just talk and talk and talk and regurgitate all of my gospel knowledge onto the people I…

Push a boulder!!

This week, as every other week for Soeur Holt, was really busy. For Wednesday through to Saturday she went to Lamentin while Soeur T stayed in Abymes: I would go to Baie Mahault whilst Soeur Needs would be in Guyane for exchanges and Soeur Reep would stay in Abymes. This is because because Soeur T and…
