Primary - Ocho Rios

Look at these beautiful Primary children! Our first week we had only two and they refused to go into the Primary room with me (they have a myth/legend here in Jamaica about a white witch - Annie Palmer, killed her husbands and then her slaves that disposed of the husbands bodies!) anyway I think those two little ones thought I was the white witch!! Our next week we had 9 Primary kids and I struggled through two hours of not being prepared - but we played lots of fun games and sang songs. This week I was sustained as the Primary President and I was really prepared - besides sit was Halloween so I had bags of treats for the kids - 14 kids came!! then after church several parents asked me for a 'sweet' - so I gave out all I had. Glad I kept two bags for the young elders at our house!! We had a great time and I'll look forward to Primary and getting some Jamaican members to help out. Happy Sunday everybody!


  1. You didn't tell me that you were made primary president today on skype - but that is great! Good luck! Do you need, want anything from here?

  2. It makes me so happy to read these updates! I feel like you are out making our world a better place each day you are a missionary. Inspires me to do the same, and I realize we all are by living as disciples of Christ. But I am inspired by you and dad! We pray for you every prayer said in our house. It is so sweet to hear the kids pray. Luke often says, "Bless Grandma and Grandpa Smith to be good on their mission." Noah mostly prays that you will have a good day in Jamaica. We love you!
