December 8, 2011

We have had a wonderful week visiting with our branches and sharing lessons with them. They have been so committed to come each week and it’s the best part of the day. I have been meeting with the different Relief Society presidencies for leadership training. Each one has different strengths. I have enjoyed getting to know them better and trying to understand their challenges. The things we have observed and have been doing all our lives are just new to them. They don’t have examples nor a pattern to follow. They all have been very humble and willing to learn.

On Sunday we invited the Kellems, new mission couple, to come with us to Kyambeke for Church. I was so excited. I felt like a proud mother showing off her children. I think Bruce and I talked too much. They loved the Hills and meeting the people. It’s a long drive but they’ll never have this kind of Sunday experience attending their ward in Nairobi.

The Babcock’s brought up some good cheese from Eldoret so we have been enjoying fresh tomatoes and cheese sandwiches. I have stopped drinking milk because it goes soar so fast. Bruce is braver than I am; he still has some with cereal and a banana every morning. I eat yogurt, I know it is suppose to be sour.

Thursday we were able to take Lucy’s keyboard out to her. She just beamed she is just so strong in the gospel. Her parents are not members but I’m sure with a daughter like Lucy they will be some day.

She did it! Lucy completed all the requirements to receive her own keyboard (made available by the Harmon Scholarship Program). She has been a member for 1 year and has been very diligent at practicing. Sister Blake got her started and she just took off with her talent. We are so proud of her and she was very very happy. We just love her, she is preparing to serve a mission.

Eunice Myself and Faith, These sweet young women go to boarding school. They are home for Summer Break.
