We did make it to district meeting Wed morning but the elders were the taxi service instead of Larry. We had a great meeting and all the missionaries said they would pray for your dad. I made banana bread and cut up fruit for the missionaries to eat before they left to return back to their own cities. Gotta keep those yunguns fed. We missed english class and branch FHE later that evening. But Larry was hurting.
We were able to attend a baptism Fri. evening. I played the piano which tells you we are short on talent sometimes. I even played a special number the RS sisters sang. A darling 81 year old lady, named Tomasa, was baptized. She says when the elders started talking to her in the street she would normally have just walked on and said" I don't have time'" but she knew she needed to stop and listen to them. Then she said she knew she had been waiting to hear what they had to share with her. It was kind of scary getting her into the baptismal "font". You have to climb up a ladder and then down to get into the water. She just couldn't make the last rung to get all the way in so finally elder Bennett just lifted her all the way in. So sweet. I just love going to these convert baptisms. Such a feeling of joy that accompanies these new members.
Today was P-day so we took the elders and hermanas to Tommy Mel's Diner for lunch. We had such a fun time with them. Transfers are coming up next week and we might lose as many as three of them so we thought we'd have a lunch together just in case. I know transfers are necessary but I just love these four missionaries we work with. Of course it will be wonderful to get to know different missionaries.
It's been good to talk to you on skype and keep in touch. Cam & Stacey we tried to call you today but no success. Let us know any news via skype or email. Take Care.
