We had a lovely Easter Sunday here on St. Kitts. We stopped to pick up Bro. Hodge from the Cardin “nursing home”. Bro. Hodge is blind and enjoys it when Elder Costley reads to him from the Book of Mormon. It was Fast Sunday and Elder Costley asked him if he wanted to bear his testimony, he said yes and that he wanted to sing a song. He did a very good job and a few of the members even joined in the chorus.
In the evening, the R.S. sisters had organized an Easter musical fireside entitled, “He is Risen”. All the organizations presented musical numbers. The YW sang two songs. The R.S. chorus sang “All Creatures of Our God and King”, the Priesthood chorus sang “Redeemer of Israel”. Sister Avery Young (the Branch Seminary teacher) and I sang “If the Savior Stood Beside Me”. Bro. Hodge sang another great song, “Were You There”, and the evening finished up with several other solos and duets. It was a very spiritual and wonderful Easter Sunday. The St. Kitts branch loves to sing!
“For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads” (D&C 25:12).
