More baptisms

                                               Week of January 10-18  2016
              Random photo driving down the road - a loaded jeepney.  They love riding on top.
A Baptism in Dauis - This little girl was baptized by her father who was inactive.  They have 6 children who are so darling.  Their home is so humble.  Couldn't see any place to eat.  Wish it weren't rude to take pictures but it is unbelievable.

                 This is the grandpa singing during the baptism service.  I thought he was so cute.
                           The father with his pretty daughter he baptized and her sister.
Another baptism in Dauis.  This is Kate.  We have visited with her for a long time.  She is a natural member of the church.  Speaks wonderful English.  Just barely got her a job for which we are grateful.  She is a wonderful lady.  Again you wouldn't believe where she lives.
                      She asked Norm to baptize her and I gave the talk on the Holy Ghost.
                                    A beautiful scene outside the church in Jagna.
Baptism in Jagna.  The son was baptized and now their whole family is baptized.  We picked them up in our truck and they live a good half hour away from the church on the bumpiest road.  So hard for them to get anywhere.

These baptisms were just this week and we couldn't get to all of them.
I gave the Elders my ipad to take a picture and this is what I got.  A selfie!  I love everyone of these dear missionaries.
Driving down the road again.  We don't know what is going on but a lot of people everywhere.
 Unbelievable.  Don't get me started on this one. It is so disgusting!!!!
Our service center where you can get parts for various things.  They are ordering me a microwave plate that I broke.  The inside looks much worse.

 Norm got a little camera happy but this is my kitchen.  I am actually quite tired of cooking here but it doesn't look too bad.  A little banana bread and cookies sitting on top of the stove..  Just get out the old silver bowl and go for it.
This is our zone conference with President and Sister Tanner on the back row.  A great privilege to be with them.  These are the missionaries we are in charge of on this island. There should be about 43 of them.
                                                        Another beautiful ride.
Norm at work again!  This guy gives a hair cut in 15 min. max.  Probably more like 10.  He charges less than $4.  175 pesos.  You get a hair wash and a shoulder massage by a girl first.  Great place!
Take a look at this salad which is rare to come by over here.  This place is about a half hour away from us and they have delicious food.  We have just discovered it and I hope to go there enough to try everything on the menu. I am not much on Filipino food but we eat very well.
