One Saturday a month you are asked to work.

They leave enough time in-between everything so that you don’t feel that you cant do everything, but I can say that after a few weeks you really look forward to a Saturday.
You can turn in a request and get your Saturday or Sunday food uncooked…you are probably wondering why would you want to do that? Three words; BBQ


This is a few of the IV’s in our building. Tamara made rice-crispy treats and others brought some other stuff. Was a nice break.

I thought that I would send a few more pictures of our Kingdom hall and inside it.



On the weekend we traveled to a farmers market kinda place and looked around at all the crafts that the locals produce. We found these two Brothers that wanted to send their greetings to the American Brothers and Sisters. They painted wall hangings. Tamara bought a few of them as they only cost 20,000 Kwatcha (4 bucks) each.

This morning we woke up to a neat surprise. A termite colony decided to enter the building and do something that left thousands and thousands of wings piled up in the hall way like drifts of snow. Never saw them but was nice of them to drop by.

Today, Tamara and I worked on one interior wall and found out that the corner was not straight. After 5 hours of working on it we had to pull it all down. Made for a frustrating day, but unlike being at home working secularly, we still enjoyed the work. I think of my Father-in-Law and a Brother in our hall, working on Quick (or slow) builds and the scripture 1 Corinthians 15:58 comes to mind. “Become steadfast, unmovable always having plenty to do in the work of the Lord, Knowing that your labor is not in vain in connection with the Lord.” Even though this particular assignment is new and exciting, we often think of all our friends and family back home and all the work you are doing. Keep up the good work Guys!
We are starting to miss you….just a bit now.
