More pictures from Changmawe Christmas party. Kids eating and the handsome couple.
he Mombasa Branch Christmas party was a hugs success. They held it out in a park and had in attendance around 180-200. Members and non members were invited.
This is a picture of Hunter and Yolanda who we spent Christmas Eve with.
The game with Elder Palmer blindfolded was really the funny one. They had a lot of us women stand in a line and he was to touch and see if he could find me. He made a great choice.
We had a tug of war which ended the women down on the ground because the rope broke in half. They had the women against the priesthood which wasn't that fair.
The children dressed up in a lot diff costumes than we are use to, to tell the story of the birth of baby Jesus.
The children had a wonderful time as well as the adults and ended the afternoon with many wonderful Christmas songs and even had a dance or two. It was great fun. Mombasa Branch really knows how to party.
Had wonderful food, pilau (rice dish) and fruits. I took our own utensils as they serve it without any. Although we have learned to eat with our hands like the rest of them. It's just this cleanliness thing Sister Palmer has. Go Figure!
At our last Zone Conference we were asked by President and Sister Hicken to join them at the hotel. We had a wonderful time. They are truly a great couple. We stayed at the Serena Hotel in Bamburi and it was beautiful
Beautiful place to visit but I saw the largest lizard there but never got a picture. Darn!
This sign was along side the road and I thought how funny one man could be of help in so many different aspects of one's life. Also kids line up for the bike of the century for this is what most bikes look like along the streets.
Thought you all could use some cheering up with the beauty of Kenya. With it being the hot season we are finding more beautiful flowers are blooming. We know you are in the cold winter and not much blooming there so here's a little bit of sunshine for you.
As we are driving along the roadside we see the many beautiful flowers that are growing. So many different shades of colors.
I wish we could bottle up these beauties and bring them home. Of course our weather would not let them live. They thrive on hot and humid air. Just wanted to share these with you
