We called our family today to wish them a Merry Christmas ( it is Christmas back home today) It was great to visit with all our children and grandchildren. We also skyped with Dean and Janine and called Lynette through the computer. If any of you have skype capability let us know and we will add you to our skype. We looked for apartments again today. No luck. I walked down to the fish market and got some more banana's and cucumbers.
We took the Elders to teach a boy named Billy. We met in the family compound.( Most families live on the same plot of land) We met in a "Nos" style home. Tin walls half-way up, wood poles on each corner to hold up the tin roof. A raised tin floor. It was dark by the time we started and this family has no electricity, so one of the neighbors brought over a kerosene lamp, so we could have a little light. Billy and his mom were there and as the lesson progressed we had 4 more of the adults come and join us. All 4 ask if they could come for the next lesson tomorrow because they wanted to know more. It was amazing, the spirit was so strong.
We then went out to Nett (Netch) and taught another lesson to a lady that is suppose to be baptized with her daughter next Saturday ( Dec. 31, 2011) She is having a problem with the local made drug ( beetlenut) and she is trying to stop using it. She will be able to, I know the Lord will help her.
It was a great day.
