A picture in contrasts

While attending Primary in Duala, this little Primary Girl came
 and sat down next to me and placed her hand in mine throughout
the whole meeting.  I took this selfie with my iPhone.

Singing Primary Songs after Church in Caldwell New Georgia

While he was waiting for his Father to finish in a meeting,
This young boy was quietly sitting by himself behind me
in the chapel singing Primary songs.  He could read the words,
 but he didn't know the tunes to some of the songs. 
So I started singing with him, and it got some of the
other childrens attention.
Pretty soon we had a crowd.  Children love
Primary songs!

My Flowering Veranda

This is our veranda outside our front door.  I have potted all these plants in the past months since we came.  Zoelu, our groundskeeper encourages me by bringing me more starts.  I love it!

Mission Home Garden

Zoelu made this garden canopy from palm leaves he took from the trees in our yard so the hot sun won't fry our tender plants.  Squash on the left and tomatoes on the right.  Picture taken from our veranda.

Tennis, anyone?

Driving down the road we came upon this biker wearing a Utah State Tennis Jacket.  I wonder if he has any idea where Utah State is.

Sisters of the Caldwell New Georgia Branch

We were taking a picture of some of the sisters in the Caldwell New Georgia branch and this young man (next to me) wouldn't leave because he said he was also in the Relief Society!  Aren't the sisters darling?

A Little Toe Surgery

Elder (Dr.) Elmer, our Area Medical Adviser performed ingrown toenail removal on both feet.  He was brave!  Do you love Roger's pants?  They were a Christmas gift from his Assistants!

At Mission Home watching Sisters Conference

All the Sisters in our mission came to the mission home to watch the Sisters Conference and to enjoy each other and some snacks.
