We went to church in Sangre Grande, Trinidad today.
Everyone calls it 'Sandy Grandy'
The road near the church isn't the greatest
But we have our own chapel

Our welcome this morning wasn't the warmest.
Actually it was kind of like walking into a lion's den.
That's because this is transfer week and Elder Shideler, who has been serving very successfully in Sangre Grande for a few transfers, is moving to another branch on Wednesday (transfer day).
There were two hopping mad newly baptized mothers who couldn't believe they were losing THEIR missionary.
They told President Robison what they thought!
Then they cried off and on throughout the meeting.
My husband leaned over and said (with a smile) - "remind me not to visit branches during weeks I am transferring THEIR missionaries."
I like to attend Primary and Young Women whenever I can. Today Samuel the Lamanite (Walker) visited the children
Did you know there are Boise State fans in Trinidad?
This was the bus loading up to take people home after church
Goodbye to a darling primary girl
We finished the day with one of our regular pre-transfer-week mission home firesides for new members and investigators. Here are a few pictures:

It really wasn't that boring
Chatting afterward (called "liming' in Trinidad)
Members for three weeks - and so happy!
