What a nice break to go to the Sr. Couples Conference. Turkey dinner topped it off with pumpkin and apple pie. Just meeting these couples and seeing their desires for the area they are serving. Also the accomplishments they are making in their area. We had lots of food, lots of places to see, played lots of games and just good conversation.
The whole group together
Elder & Sister Murdock
Elder & Sister Knecht
Elder and Sister Gotcher -the funny ones
Just all sitting around and having a lot of fun.
Played a game that was fun. Got to know some pretty weird things about each one.
Elder & Sister Moon. She was the one that tackled my hair cut. Got to give her credit. She does her own hair and her husband does the back of it. Pretty trusting I'd say. Fun couple.We went shopping with them in Nairobi and they were such troopers to walk around with us
Alma is a seven year old boy in Changmwe Branch. He has been very sick all of his life. He has upper respiratory problems. At night and during the day his lungs fill up with mucous In the morning his father gives him something to drink places es him over his knee and he throws up this fluid so he can breath. You can see his heart racing in his chest. Life is a struggle every day for him and his family and he weighs about as much as a feather. They have taken him to alot of the government hospitals here and they diagnose either TB or Malaria standard diagnose here for every thing. It is the only thing the people can afford. We have been communicating with the church doctor in south Africa. He has agreed to get Alma proper care so we Will know his problems and he will get proper care. This was our Christmas present for 2013 . IT has been an incredible spiritual experience . Our father in heaven truly loves all his children
