Dancing in the rain!

We received a letter this week from Soeur Holt telling us a little bit more about her companion, Soeur Tepapatahi. Being together for nearly two transfers will mean that Soeur T will have been her longest companion so it’s lovely to learn more about her. The first thing is that she is not Tahitian as…

Staying in Abymes

The big news of this week is transfer news!! I am staying in Abymes with Soeur Tepapatahi and I am so happy I really thought that I was leaving and I really didn’t want to; we both screamed down the phone at the APs (Assistants to the President) when we got the news. The next transfers…

Distance makes the heart grow fonder!

On Monday evening in Manchester, our home town, we experienced an horrendous terrorist attack. This took place at the Manchester Arena which is a venue we have all visited many times for sporting and music events.

Six months has come and gone!

This week was very exciting and emotional for Soeur Holt and for all of us at home. It was American Mother’s Day on Sunday so we got to Skype for an hour. We made sure that everything was set up the night before and that we could play the call through our television so we…

Emergency/ Surprise Transfer!

Singles’ Club

No, it’s nothing like that! On a Monday evening for Family Home Evening the single members of the branch get together. Last week it was at Sister Point du Jour’s home- we played a game where Stracy had to get across the room blind folded with Sister Volet instructing her and the rest of us…
