We Are Not Alone...
- A fun post note. When they arrived at our house on Friday, Elder N'Gondo expressed worry about the high prices here. He said that he'd heard a chicken was $30. He was anxious about it and so were others. Several times during the morning, they brought up the chicken and how expensive it was. Sister Jameson happened to have bought a whole chicken at the store the day before. ($8 not $30, but still ridiculously priced!) It was pretty yucky and as she put it in the freezer, she wondered if she would ever really cook and eat it. We're spoiled with Costco chicken breasts in the US. After the elders left and were just waiting downstairs for their taxi, we decided to give them the chicken. Instead of taking it to them, she just called Elder N'Gondo over and threw down the frozen chicken. He was pretty excited!

As you can read we have our work cut out for us but wow it will be more than a pleasure to be an instrument in participating in His work to such a prepared people. We continue to have engaging gospel discussions ending in “will you attend sacrament meeting at…” Craig has a hard time shopping because one clerk with questions attracts another then another until we are in a group committing them to attend or teaching a first discussion in the store aisles. The hole is filling as the heart becomes whole!
Please feel free to comment on your feelings. We love to hear from you. We love you all!!
