Transfers are coming up next week. We will lose a few of our missionaries, but at the same time we will gain a few. We had a P-Day activity last Monday in Soufriere. We all wanted to climb the Pitons, but the price was so high that not everybody could afford it. So we decided to go to the beach and hang out. The missionaries played volleyball and Elder Gubler and I took a boat ride. I packed a picnic lunch and we had a good time. It is such a beautiful area and I'm always in awe when I see it.
We will be hosting Zone Conference next week. The missionaries from St. Vincent will be coming over to St. Lucia for the meeting. They fly in on Friday and leave Saturday evening. We have to house 16 missionaries, 14 Elders and 2 Sisters. The Elders in Castries will house the Elders and we will house the Sisters at our apartment. We are in charge of the lunch during Zone Conference. I thought about making the lunch myself, but I don't have the kitchen facilities or the cooking utensils to cook for a large crowd. We decided to have it catered. There is a Chinese restaurant that we enjoy that will provide the food. Zone Conference is always an uplifting meeting. President and Sister Mehr do such a wonderful job instructing the missionaries.
The next two weeks will be really hectic as we deal with transfers and Zone Conference. Elder Gubler is a taxi service transporting missionaries to and from the airport. Driving is insane in St. Lucia. Most of the roads are one lane roads. Elder Gubler says he's always rubbing mirrors when he drives over here. But, he's such an excellent driver, no accidents. Most of the driving is up and down mountain passages.
We love serving the Lord and are so grateful to Him for all he's done for us. I really enjoy studying the scriptures and have developed a love for "The Book of Mormon". It is a powerful book and a testimony that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. Until next time.

Elder Byron, ready to
leave on his Mission.
We took him to the
airport. So exciting to see
these young people from St.
Lucia serve missions. He will be
serving in the London South Mission.
Cute seminary class
We were invited to a wedding of an investigator
and his bride who took a cruise down to St.
Lucia to get married. Her cruise ship is in
the background. She had to say goodbye to
her husband not long after the wedding. Hopefully,
they will be reunited soon.
