May 24 Bermuda Day Parade & Half Marathon

A Bermudian Band lead off for the Parade..................Don't they look great!
Notice the ballerinas running, the two on the right are men, Ha ha, what good sports!
Our fellow member Aaron, from England, he did great. 


We were fortunate enough to meet up with Sister Trott (brown hair). She shared her family, food & shade, she's the BEST! They have such a nice family.
Bermuda Day is a big celebration here, rightfully so, they are proud to be Bermudians.  The Elders and us decided we would join in by attending the parade and watching for our Branch President and our friend Aaron  to finish the race.  It was fun to cheer them on and enjoy the many families out for the day. They start the day before by marking their place along the route.  Some actually camp for the night to get the prime spots.  Most have sun tents to shade them, all have chairs and a table for cooking or preparing food for the family and friends.  I must say the food looked delicious.  They all were enjoying themselves immensely.  It did contribute to us missing our family and friends. We thought a great deal of each of you that day.  To console ourselves we opted to eat at the "Hog Penny", Rachel Ray visited there last year to eat.  I'm HAPPY to report it was as good as she had said.

First Dinner Guests on Princess Estate Road

Aaron and Elder Meyers waiting there turn.
Jasmine, Dwane, & Aaron
Jasmine, Dwane, Blerta, & Elder Nackos

How about this, we were shocked when we realized how we could host a total of 8 people for Sunday Dinner.  Wow the roast was cooked to perfection (whew) and there was enough food for seconds.  As you may tell this was a very impromptu affair.  It was great fun, did you notice Elder Nackos cheesy grin ; )

#2 KEYSTONE ARCH

This is our 2nd of many to come Keystone Arches.  They've all unique personalities.

Book of Mormon a KEYSTONE

We see these archways all over the island, they are constructed with a  KEYSTONE at the top, “the central wedge-shaped stone of an arch that locks its parts together.”  We believe the Book of Mormon to be the keystone of our religion. I'm fascinated by these beautiful arches and will share others at a later time.

Dwaynes Baptism



Saturday was not only spectacular but sacred as well.  We were able to attend the baptism of a good young man, Dwayne.  His cousin Galvin, holding the priesthood was able to perform this ordinance.They're a special family with a strong desire to serve the Lord.  Father in Heaven provided the font at Jobsons Cove.  It was said that is one of the most beautiful fonts in the church, I would have to agree!
On our way to Sis Adams surprise destination, we just had to snap a pic of this beautiful island.

Down a quiet land we find this sweet crane, pretty huh!
After the baptism, our friend Liz took us on an adventure to find this old church.  It is said to be one of two of the oldest churches on the island.  Not longer formally used, but open to those who choose to visit.  Quaint and charming. 

As you can see it's very small, not very tall as well.

Good Friends!


These are our dear friends, the Zollingers, who serve as humanitarian missionaries.  They save many infants lives by the great work they do in South America.  Thanks for your beautiful example of charity.

Tread Lightly

The sisters in the Branch had a delightful surprise at the finish of our meetings on Sunday.  Sister Veronica brought 5 large boxes full of shoes for each sister to look through and have her pick.  The remainder will be sent to the Philippines when Sister Jay goes home to visit.  As you can see in the background, the priesthood stayed clear of the commotion : ) something about ladies and SHOES!


"Phones"

Elder Webster seems to never be far from the phone, either on his hip or hanging around dock yard.  He is not far when it comes to helping others.   Which he is very good at!

24th Annual End-to-End!


Sister Molessia and the Elders ran the 
"End to End" here in Bermuda.  It begins in St. Georges on the east and ends at the Dockyard on the west side of the island (grand total of 24 miles).  They were good sports, we understand that it has been a 
New York South Mission tradition.  
THEY KEPT THE FAITH!  
Please don't be confused, 
Elder Webster did not go the distance : )

24th Annual End-to-End!

Miss Joan our next door neighbor is the star of the "End to End" she has walked it every year for 24 years (thus the #)!
The fellow in the green shorts walks "The End to End" barefoot each year!

We knew that when we left we would be missing some very precious events in our lives as well as our families.  We are grateful that they have shared some pictures to help include us.  Aren't they a handsome couple.  We love you Noah and Kelsey and wish you "Eternal Happiness"!  
Kels, you and your dress are beautiful!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints Bermuda Branch

Good morning!  
It's been a while, thought I would share where we go to church.  
It's a great building and serves the branch well.  
Only one problem, they seem to be getting tight on space, 
isn't that a great problem.  
We love being here, the branch has such a great spirit, 
and boy can they sing.  
It helps you to feel the spirit like nothing else.  

We tell each other every day just how kind everyone is in Bermuda.  
We are blessed to be here.
