This is the view outside our flat towards the tall church steeple we can usually see. This picture was taken when the tree still had no leaves (in April). We decided to share some of our day-to-day surroundings, since we have a little time off duty today.
This is the little fridge that came with the flat and the cabinet it hides behind.
This is the "large" fridge the mission provided, the microwave members gave us, and our drying rack (necessity with no dryer and no place to put a line outside to dry the wash).
This is our office where we do our computer work. There's a nice tall shelf to store stuff just next to our work table on the right.
One last boring picture (hee, hee). This was our Island Night for two ward's missionary evening. The people from the different island cultures carried in their dishes as they were introduced. 159 attended and 14 Books of Mormon were placed!
Towards the end of the evening, the audience was introduced to the fact Jesus Christ visited His "sheep of other folds" after His resurrection, (John 10:16 & 3 Nephi 16:3). The "lost sheep" included not only the Americas, but all the islands of the seas and all other places in the world. The islands held traditional teachings and beliefs related to a great white God coming to them some day. No wonder it was so easy for Captain Cook and all the other explorers to befriend and conquer the natives in the Americas! They, of course, had been waiting for Jesus Christ's promised return in the last days.
