Went to the hospital for a heat rash on my face.  The Dermatologist said it is fairly common here with foreigners because they aren't used to the humidity and climate.  It was really itchy and puffy enough that I couldn't open my mouth real well.  They gave me an IV of hydro-cortisone and a minor steroid/antihistamine for the swelling and discomfort.

Rainy Season...

Hey Everyone - Elder Hill here in the Rainy city of Chaguanas!  It's the rainy season and it's been raining a lot...it's crazy how hard it rains!  We put our stuff in plastic bags and then in our book bags because everything gets wet.

6 inches of rain in the gutter after 5 minutes of rain!

There are 2 seasons in the West Indies: Rainy... June through December (averaging 8-10" a month), and Dry: January - May (2-4" a month) with 80% humidity all year long.  Low temps are in the 70's and highs in the 80's...the humidity makes it feel much warmer!

"Saturday was really good. Sylvester was a little nervous at first but after he was baptized he was grinning ear to ear.  He definitely had the light of Christ in his eyes after he was dunked.  Afterwards we took pictures and went to the cultural hall and the missionaries did a musical number.  It was really powerful.  As they let the congregation bear their testimonies I got up and shared mine.  I can definitely say this mission thing is growing on me."

"Anil's baptism was really great. The Spirit was very strong and the program was super powerful.  We had an investigator show up to the baptism as well.  I was able to do the Confirmation in church and give him the Gift of the Holy Ghost.  Anil is being taught the New Member Lessons now and absolutely loves the Doctrine and Covenants."

So proud of these young men...ALL of them!

My testimony is growing everyday of my mission.  I'm having a great time teaching and it's actually one of the best things I like to do.  The spirit I feel is pretty amazing...

I know that this is the Restored Church of Jesus Christ.  I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and that he sent us here to succeed and not to fail.  He is always there for us in our time of need and it is up to us to put forth the effort and go to Him first.  I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word and Work of God.  I love everything about this gospel and I absolutely love being a disciple of Christ in the West Indies.  I may not get a bunch of baptisms like the missionaries in Guyana but I know that people have been prepared for me to find them in Trinidad.  I have to be diligent and obey with exactness to experience these miracles set aside from God for my own personal Conversion.  As I teach about the messages that Christ has given us to teach, with out a doubt in my mind I know that God lives and he is with us all along the way guiding us back so that we can live with our Father in Heaven Eternally!  My Calling gives me Authority...my Authority Gives me Power...I am a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I love my job of bringing lost souls back to our Father.  I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is Real and the healing power that comes with it is extremely powerful.  As we live what we learn our faith is constantly increasing.  I know that my testimony is still growing and I know that as we try our best God will do the rest.  My prayers are for the people so that they can find their way back to our shepherd, savior and redeemer.  If anyone is thinking about serving a mission - DO IT!  I can't believe the things I've learned and the things I'm soon to learn.  I love my Heavenly Father and I Know that I'm supposed to be here in The Caribbean.  Even though it's really Warm down here I Love it!
