Our Merry Christmas to Carmen
Here we are ready to go. We picked up the group leader and his wife in Carmen and he said the 4 Elders wanted to go with us to deliver besides he and his wife. So 4 fit in the back and I wondered where the other two would fit in with the groceries but they did.
This is the organization process going on the night before. I had cans spread all over. That table looks a bit untidy and it is. You can see my pantry under the table - 3 tubs.
The finished product.
Two Elders were taking pictures.
I love the jungle. Such beautiful country!
Muddy trails - this is why the Elders wear rubber shoes. I have some.
After we were through the Elders stopped here for a bite. Look familiar to you, Jake? Angels in Carmen. I expect you have been lined up here before.
Howdy! Care to go for a ride?
On the return trip I traded the larger elder - he sat in front and I took a back seat with the rest of the elders. That was doable.
Norm celebrating New Year's Eve after we got home from the party. The missionaries had to be home by 8:00 p.m. We had a rousing party at home. He did wake up for the fireworks that started at midnight and went for hours afterwards.
We just went to town and bought him a shirt and a couple ties. Somewhere his little brother found a shirt. I will never forget the sweet look in Jaharie's eyes before we left when he looked at me and said in such a sweet tender voice "Thank you so very much". And he shook my hand. We gave them a little money to make sure they could get a ride to church next Sunday. We won't be able to be there.
I am so happy to be serving here.
