Journey to Visit Members on the Windward Side of the Island

Goat and Sheep Herd - They are led to grass and staked with ropes to graze all day. They are then brought in for the night for protection and to prevent theft. We see people leading them with ropes attached to collars many times every day. No, we haven't eaten any sheep or goat....yet. If you can eat iguana, goat and sheep shouldn't be too bad! :)
Sister Brown with her daughter Alisha. She is in our "Teaching, No Greater Call" Sunday School class. She and Elmore, her husband both have very strong testimonies and really love the Church. He was very involved in helping build all of the chicken coops for the Food Inititaive.
Her chickens are laying eggs and she is selling them. She has also bought some more chicks to continue the project. That is the way it is supposed to work! 
Grandma Kathy with the Browns.
On the way to Georgetown...couldn't resist stopping! Breath taking beauty everywhere! Yes, I am talking about Grandma Kathy! :)
Sister Samuels, another sweet branch member. Wonderful sister with strong testimony.  Lived in England about 35 years and moved back to St. Vincent, where she was born. Had a wonderful fish dinner with her.
Men making charcoal in "pit kilns". They put the wood in a pit with leaves over it, start a fire and then carefully cover it with dirt and let it "smolder" for about two weeks. They uncover it, cool it, and then break it into small pieces and sell it to their neighbors, who then cook with it.
The finished product.
