Leaving Vreed en Hoop


Well big news! Transfers is this week and I'm...... Leaving Vreed - En - Hoop and moving to Diamond Central with Elder Biglor. I leave tomorrow at around 12. It will be pretty good.     
(Note from Dad....Since this email came in I have been looking for Diamond Central with no help from Google. I did go onto the "Trinidad, Port of Spain" Facebook page and asked if anyone could tell me where Elder Fisher was headed "Diamond Central." I got flooded with responses. He is in Vreed en hoop which is on the north side of the Demerara river, across from Georgetown. Diamond area is an area on the south side of the river and it is split into 3 areas. Georgetown is in the most north area, then heading south its Glen Park area and then Diamond. So he is about 45 minutes away from his old area just on the opposite side of the river. Then i got a message from the     Ali-Savory family from Vreed en hoop and they said "Elder Fisher is an awesome missionary, my family loves him dearly. He is all good" Also I got a message from Elder Bigler's mom stating that "Diamond is just outside of Georgetown. He will be serving with my son." I found out that his new companion is from Salem Utah and has been serving since December. He also had to serve 6 weeks states side while waiting for his visa to come. 
There were others but it was pretty cool instantly connecting with all these people that had connections with Elder Fisher)

(Back to Elder Fisher's letter) Sultan's baptism was on Saturday. It went really well. He is such a cool guy. He still hasn't missed church since his incident. It also turns out Dianna is related to Brother Savory! He is the the guy I sent a picture of a few weeks ago who left to work in the interior. She seems very prepared and Sultan is making a great fellow-shipper. 
It is very hot here and yes it rains a lot. We do get lightning but its just a flash in the clouds and there is no thunder ever. Its kinda strange. 
All and all things have been really good. I'm going to miss Vreed - En - Hoop.

A picture of us with Sultan And Brother Peter who baptized him as well as Brother Jumen, then just us and Sultan and then the beautiful greenish brown water that comes out of the baptismal font. it was a really good baptism!

Finally found a live centipede. That thing is nasty!  It's HUGE! and moved fast.

Big group pics with the three missionaries leaving the branch.

Love Elder Fisher
