Week 52

March 27, 2017

Not really any pictures taken this week, Elder Shafer and I forgot to get a picture of the both of us.  For those that are unsure of what I am talking about.
I have been transferred to Sav (Savana-La-Mar) and am now serving with Elder Shafer.  It has been an awesome and busy week.  It is a branch here and it is also massive.  I hope to be able to help the Branch President in achieving the goals for the area.  I have met some really awesome people and am expecting a few baptisms in the coming weeks.
I love when the Lord directs his work because ita a lot less stressful than when you are trying to figure out how to do His work.  If you listen to the Holy Ghost and act on what He tells you.  You will be helped and comforted by our Heavenly Father.  I am out of time for this week, so we meet again next week.

Enjoy your week,
---Elder Wood---

Week 51

March 20, 2017

My Mailing address is still the same, it doesn't change even though I move around.  I will be changing though, I will be serving in Sav-La-Mar.  It is located on the opposite side of the island from Port Antonio.  This past week has been great though because of the members here.  What we missionaries call converts are those who have chosen to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  We have been working with many recent converts of helping their families to develop a closer relationship with Heavenly Father as well.  I know that going from Porty to Sav will be quite the change, but I know that I am now needed there.

I will talk to you all later,

Found another beautiful view in Port Antonio before I head to Sav-La-Mar.  Pictures of a baptism that we had on Saturday, I actually found that we had 15 baptisms in the mission!!!

Week 50

March 13, 2017

It was an amazing week.  Over the past few weeks President Elder Rowley of Port Antonio Branch has been working with the Yallahs Branch President and the Ochos Rios Branch President and the Ocho Rios Branch President to have a Tri-Branch activity.  The other branches took buses loaded to the brim with people.  There was probably close to 200 members there.  It was awesome.  There was no arguing or anything, everyone had a great time.

This is the first time something like that has ever happened for them.  God's church is full of first times.  We are ALWAYS learning and becoming better people, if we want to be.  I know that the members here will remember that well, just like they remember when they first became members.  I hope and pray that you all have a fantastic week.  We will be getting transfer calls on Saturday, so I might not still be in Port Antonio next week, but we will see.

I will talk to you later,
---Elder Wood---

The first picture is Elder Rowley with the Branch President of Ochos Rios President Francis.  These are all different parts of a Tri-Branch activity that we did on Saturday.
