Hi family and friends . . .
Today is our 44th anniversary . . . wow that's crazy to think of that number!!
Since we arrived we have been working on the Annual Area Auditor Training that is tomorrow and Saturday the 14th and 15th. Have done all of the scheduling for meeting agendas, flights, food and lodging for the 7 assistants and their wives to come here to Santo Domingo. We are having dinner catered for Friday night but Saturday breakfast and lunch we are arranging ourselves. Do you know the effort to find ice chests and tablecloths etc. when you aren't "home?" But . . . we think we are under control. There are also three men coming from Salt Lake . . . the three over the Church Auditing Department. Wish us luck!!
Richard and Hazie Brown came Tuesday from Trinidad ~ they are the couple over the West Indies ~ and have been staying with us. It was a stressful airport run at midnigtht on unfamiliar roads that do not have good lighting - we felt watched over and blessed. We have had a great time visiting with them and getting to know such good devoted people.
Have I mentioned how curly my hair is here . . . I have pretty much gone with it. I always feel pink and hot!
We went to a fun restaurant that advertised Peruvian Grilled Chicken ~ the Peru thing drew Chuck in and it was delicious! He even got to enjoy Inca Kola that he has such a love for from his young missionary days.
This is the entry picture of our apartment . . . poor missionaries!
