(I think this is their "tough" 

We had a Return Missionary Fireside where we invited all those in Guyana who had gone on missions to come (and spouses).  We also invited those who were getting ready to go.   We had an ok turn out but are hoping to do this on a regular basis and get more and more attendance.  We will be doing some that will just be  single adult activities and others that will be firesides.  There are 4000 on the membership rolls in Guyana and 1400 of those are single adults .  We don't have near that many attend regular meetings so there is a real need to find them.  We are hoping to activate this missionary force to bring about a huge mission push in this area.  Our goals are Wards, Stakes and a Temple.  We believe in Miracles and know that it is possible.  But we cannot do it without the help of the members. Incredible things can happen when missionaries and members work together. So much work to be done and we definitely feel an urgency.  The gospel message can definitely heal this beautiful country.   Elder Acosta and Elder Gammiet of the area came to this meeting.  We are so grateful for their support.

For this Zone conference we had a combined conference with ALL of the Guyana missionaries.  We usually break it into two conferences but we brought them all together for a special Christmas Zone Conference.  They really loved all being together.  It was a very special day for all of us!!

They have really left a legacy of hard work and obedience!!  So Grateful for their service.  I'm excited to see what the future holds for each of them. 

How many missionaries can we fit in the Bohne's car.  

President Baird "Contacting" in airport. He noticed this man with a
camouflage hat on.  This, of course, started up a hunting conversation.
Always good to find common ground to start with.  Kyle has a way of
connecting with people.  That makes him such a great missionary.
He truly is a "people person".  It's not hard to LOVE him.  

We are actually getting used to and starting to like the smaller airports and planes.
It saves us travel time not going through Trinidad, we cut out an hour on each end to
the bigger airports (it's only 10 minutes to the smaller ones), and I feel like
we are on a sight-seeing plane we get to see so much of the country in between. We
get to Suriname in a few hours vs taking most of the day the other way.   

Goodbye, Guyana!!
