From St Kitts

Our Elders on St Kitts
We have settled in a bit now and are working with two of the Lord’s finest elders here on St.  Kitts. We will call them Elder Turbo(from Calif.) and Elder T(from Colorado) for privacy reasons. Elder Turbo is our district leader and we report our missionary activities to him.

This last Sunday we attended a meeting that was broadcast from SLC to all the stakes in the Caribbean and to our branch. We were instructed to build our families and to improve ourselves before the Lord and to shun pornography. Families are the essential building block in all the world. We also had two meetings in the afternoon with our mission president who was visiting from Puerto Rico. He instructed the leadership of the branch in the importance of reactivation and retaining new members.

We had our district meeting on Monday morning at the church and then in the evening continued teaching a less- active sister, her non-member children and niece. They are making a little progress each time we meet with them.

Tuesday morning early we were at the church again to hold a zone meeting via Skype with all the island  missionaries:  St. Thomas, St. Croix, Tortola, Antigua, Dominica, St. Kits and Nevis. We met the senior couple (they are from St. Croix) and senior sisters (from Layton and SLC) on Antigua – they are in our district under Elder Turbo.

We are getting acquainted with the members and loving them. The above photo is Elder Turbo and Elder T in front of the chapel. The chapel and the islands of St. Kitts/Nevis were dedicated for missionary work in 2004 by President Gordon B. Hinckley.


  1. That's interesting that missionary work is relatively new to your island. I have a friend who lives in Dominica. Her husband is attending medical school there at Ross University. Best wishes for a successful week. :)

  2. Do you have a regular chapel? It looks like it from the sign with the Elders. What great experiences you are having. Thanks for sharing.
