Our abode


Grandpa by Cebu Temple

Such a privilege to be together!

Fixing lunch.

This is their kitchen where they hold church. See the chairs stacked up. On the table is orange tub with Jakes wash soaking.

Our mode of transportation. Hope it looks as good when we leave. Could use your prayers on that one. 

Our front door..

Cutting lawn with shears.

Sisters apartment behind us.

Our washing machine outside.

Our drier. 

Gate coming in to house. It is locked every night. 

Inside front door. Norm on his desk. Printer and my computer. Kitchen with pink cabinets. White door is bathroom, then frig and you can sort of see stairs going up to bedroom.  15 to be exact that Norm exercises on several times during the night.

Kitchen table and pantry before going upstairs. 
Also back door going to washer and drier. 

All in one. Much better than most!

Bed, closet, nook where I do my hair and ironing board.
There you have it. 

Love you

We are here

We are here and the best day ever!!!  This is where Elder Tolman lives - on the bottom and this where they hold church.

Just love that boy!!  Words cannot describe the happiness I feel!!!  One of the most humbling, joyful experiences of my life!  I love that boy!!  As we have been in his area for 2 days now the Elders can not say enough good about Elder Tolman. He is a GREAT missionary. 

We are just barely getting things set up at our place so will write more later. But we are here and ready to go to work. 

Love you all!!!

President and Sister Tanner with us.

On our way

So appreciate Bryce and Amber delivering us to the airport!

All went smoothly at the airport. Had a nice flight to Portland.

Had a  6 1/2 hour maintenance delay. They gave us a sandwich to eat. 

We should have left at 2 but it was after 8:30 before we boarded. We sat for 8 1/2 hours before our 10 hour flight.   Norm took a Dramamine and slept nearly the whole time which was a blessing. I slept a little but mostly read, listened to music, knitted, played games etc.  it was great!

Leanna was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived at 10:30 p.m.  It took a while to go through customs and then it was a 2 hour ride to Leanna's - more paperwork at the base. Didn't get to bed until 2:30 a.m.  But we are so happy to be here.
