Introducing Elder & Sister Chandler to Pohnpei

       We have been having a fun time showing the new couple around the Island and introducing them around. Thursday they met us out to the Palikir Branch for Institute, there first solo ride to a church house and they didn't even get lost. Then Friday on to Mand and Sapwalap.  We had a lot of fun and they are great sports. Everyone loved them, they are going to be a great for the People of Pohnpei. They love them and have fun with them, they are trying to learn the language, willing to eat anything
( well just about anything, they haven't tried dog yet, not sure we will be able to talk them into that).
Then Saturday on to the Baptism in Wone & Palikir ( Palikir and Sekerra combined for this baptism)
It has been great to get some new ideas from them as we hear them talk about some of the promptings they have had about the work the Lord needs them to do here.
     Each of us are different, and have different talents, the Lord sends us all over the world, because HE wants us to share the gifts HE has given us with those we meet. I am learning even more, something I already knew. HE is the only one in charge.
Elder & Sister Chandler, they will fit right in !!!!!!!!
