Crown of Thorns 
(Euphorbia milii)

Our calendar wasn't very full this week as far as traveling or meetings. We were able to get a lot of paper work, phone calls, and emails done to further the progress with several current and potential projects. 

We also had several wonderful morning exercise sessions in the pool! The weather is warm enough now to make it really enjoyable. One morning we walked to a local "mall" to pay our Internet/phone bill - round trip about 2 miles; we were so hot by the time we got back home. It's fun to take these walks as we're becoming more familiar with the regular vendors out on the streets. 

We had a good meeting on Monday with a private business whose employees have great Christian attitudes about helping the community. Specifically, they've "adopted" two schools in nearby Portmore. A member who works there set up the meeting to discuss the possibility of LDS Charities partnering with this company. We are encouraged to create such partnerships because they are especially helpful with the sustainability of projects. 

We did take one quick trip over and back to Montego Bay to make a payment on a project there. Trips like this seem shorter than they did a few months ago; I guess because we're becoming used to them. 


President and Sister Pearson are doing a lot of traveling this month with three weekend trips to the other islands in the mission, so we're the contact for any medical needs. Of course, we always pray for and are grateful for the health and well-being of our amazing elders and sisters, but I am especially grateful when they all stay healthy and safe when the Pearsons are gone. 


We hope everyone has a lovely week leading up to Easter Sunday. It is a special time for us to reflect on the last days of our Savior's earthly life. We are eternally grateful and with the Apostles of the Church we "testify of the reality of His matchless life and the virtue of His atoning sacrifice. None other has had so profound an influence upon all who have lived and will yet live upon the earth." 

"He Sent His Son"
