Hello All,
Let's see the show of hands of all those that want to see Jamaica become a Stake pretty soon here......1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, ten, fifteen, twenty-four, thirty-six, forty-two, fifty-seven, okay, okay that is good, please keep praying for us.
We are not quite there yet, but we are very close, the last time we were about twenty Elders short and we were blessed with two over that amount, but now our membership has grown over the last couple of months since we made that submission, so we need another 7 or so in order to make yet another submission. We hope that one will be the icing on the cake to put us in good. so we need all of your prayers and faith, as we continue to work hard on this. It is just a test of faith for all of us as the Lord tries us to prove that we are indeed desirous of this blessing that will set Jamaica on the road to greater church development and growth. We will forbear!

Many of you will readily remember Elder Rohan Barnett from Spanish who has gained the distinction as the First Jamaican Assistant to the President (AP). He was released from his Mission near the end of January and he has also gotten another notch in his armoury as the most recently released and now engaged Elder! He popped the big question about a month ago to the wonderfully talented Sister Nannette Hayles, who has being home from serving in the New York New York Mission since June of last year. They are planning to tie the nuptial knot in November. We wish them all the best, and lots of little Missionaries! (:-

Sister Nardia R. Irons who is currently in the Georgia Atlanta Mission will be home come next week Wednesday (30th of April). She is currently serving as the 'Sisters Coordinator', which is the equivalent of the Elders being called as Zone Leaders. Sister Marcha Francis from May Pen is also in the same Mission.

We are currently planning a Temple trip to the Santo Domingo Temple in the Dominican Republic and hope to have about 5 couples sealed together with their children. These include but are not limited to, the Henrys, McLeans and Blackwoods all from Spanish Town, the Grants from Constant Spring, and the Deans from Portmore. The trip is as of right now scheduled for the 19th - 23rd of next month. (Any one wants to meet us in Santo Domingo on any of those days? Contact me!! medley@cwjamaica.com (:-

Also scheduled to be the Inaugural Returned Missionary Reunion in Jamaica is the one for he 6th of August. I will provide more details on this as it all comes together. This day will be the Independence weekend and I know that a lot of you boys would just love to come down and have a good time at Sunsplash and enjoy a Reunion with your Alumni. (Not to mention drinking a few beers.....Ginger that is!) (:-

I have to make mention of the Yallahs Branch that is growing in leaps and bounds as of right now. We have two marvellous Missionaries there, Elders Summer and Tukuafu and they are doing a Magnificent job. I know there is at least one very proud Mama out there! (:-

Wasn't General Conference great? I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did or even more. I especially like Bishop H. David Burton's And That's the Way It Is

Also I pass on and leave you with the admonition of the Greatest Prophet, even the Lord's Anointed Pres. Gordon Bitner Hinckley:Pres. Gordon Bitner Hinckley:

"I think of loyalty in terms of being true to ourselves. I think of it in terms of being absolutely faithful to our chosen companions. I think of it in terms of being absolutely loyal to the Church and its many facets of activity. I think of it in terms of being unequivocally true to the God of heaven, our Eternal Father, and His Beloved Son, our Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ.

"We must be true to the very best that is in us.

"Pray to your Heavenly Father in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and always, under all circumstances, by the very nature of your lives show your loyalty and your love.

Who's on the Lord's side? Who?
Now is the time to show.
We ask it fearlessly:
Who's on the Lord's side? Who?

May each of us always be found to be true and faithful, men and (women) of integrity and absolute loyalty." Loyalty

May each of us live in such a way that those who know us will be able to repeat like unto what the Saviour said when he saw Nathaniel, "Truly a (Latter-Day Saint) indeed, in whom is no guile!"

Love to you all.
