Ribs and Chicken on the Barbie.... Sea Side. Mmmm!
One of the great things about being on the island with the American University of the Caribbean and as Mormons is that we get to know people in both communities. In only a few months we’ve met some wonderful people through AUC who will no doubt be friends for many years to come, if not for life. And through the LDS branch here on the island we’ve also met some local islanders who are fantastic people and who we never would have met had it not been for the Mormon church.
(Quick vocab update for non-Mormons: Mormon congregations come in two types: wards and branches. Wards are big, branches are small. The congregation on St. Martin is too small to be a ward, so we’re a branch.)
This past Easter weekend the branch sponsored two activities: A beach side BBQ on Friday and an Easter Egg hunt on Monday. I didn’t make it to the egg hunt, but all the kids and Michelle went and the report was tremendously positive. I did, however, make it to the BBQ with Andi, Tanner and Piper. And wow! What a treat! The chicken and ribs flowed endlessly, the company was terrific, the weather was beautiful, and the beach (which we hadn’t been to before) was beautiful. But most of all, the chicken and ribs flowed endlessly and the company was terrific!
I thought I’d share a few photos of both events. Read the rest of this entry »
