Not a typical day

  Climbed through the jungle for 5 hours, fell down, crossed a river(walked very carefully through it) all to see a beautiful waterfall. my hip hurts and I have a great bruise, but it was all worth it. It was beautiful.
   Yesterday the Kjars (other missionary couple) son and his wife and 2 children arrived for a week long visit. Because our cars are small, we are helping them take there family around to meet some of the members and see the local sites.So today we all hiked to one of the many waterfalls on the island. We took all the seminary students and Sis. Conrad and her 2 little children( she is the seminary teacher and branch presidents wife) they are all in the Kitti (pronounced kitchi) branch. It was a long and rough hike right through the middle of some pretty dense jungle, but when we got there it was beautiful. there was a swimming hole at the bottom of the waterfall, so all the kids were swimming and cliff jumping, they even climbed up the rocks and found a way under the waterfall. It was so cool. as soon as we get the pictures ready we will post them.
     Tomorrow we are going to the gun tower. We will hike again( I hope i can move in the morning) and this is a place left over from when the Japanese were on the island during world war II. We have been told there are still the actual guns that they used there.
