We went to the rurals this a.m. and distributed some clothes and blankets to some elderly people. It went really well as the Pastor had things well organized. We helped about 100 people. As each group came in and received their clothes they sang a thank you song to us before they left. It is kind of fun. They were very grateful.

Last night we went to Merci's restaurant for supper and she had some special African musicians there. The food was really good and so was the entertainment. Merci is working hard to get her business going. I think she is well on her way. Taylors, Deppes and ourselves went as well as the 2 security men that were here from SLC to check things out before Elder Holland's visit. They all enjoyed the evening.

At Merci's Restaurant

She has a great singing voice

African instrument - sorry, can't remember the name. This girl could play it really well.

Merci had her baptismal interview today and she did great. The Zone leaders told us afterwards that she was the most prepared person he has interviewed for baptism and that we had done a great job teaching her. That made us feel good but it wasn't us - Merci just learned things so easily and well. Her grandfather was in a polygamy situation so she has to be interviewed by the mission president and get approved still but it won't be a problem.

Carol and Ellson - friends we meet on our morning walks

I guess we need to head home so I will cut this off.
