March 19-24, 2012

This week we had three RS Birthday Celebrations. They were every long but no one seemed to mind. On Thursday we arrived at Kyambeke at 9:40 and by 10:30 we were headed back to the hospital in Nairobi with a very sick brother. President Broadbent gave us permission to bring Edward in as he was in much pain with urinary track/kidney problems. We are waiting for word on how he is doing from the Branch President. Because we came back so early, I was able to get an appointment with Lydia to have my hair cut. I guess she forgot that I just asked for a trim. She cut off one-two inches in some areas. Oh well I have 10 months left and . . .it is Africa. No one really cares what you look like. Saturday is our last RS Celebration. This branch is having peanut butter and jam sandwiches for their refreshment. Right now that sounds better than the boiled chicken we had today.

This is a home-made cart used to carry charcoal down to the market to sell. Charcoal is what they cook with.
It is so dry out to the Hills. People are struggling for water. They just keep digging deeper in the river beds.
The Ilima RS Presidency
Friday we had the RS Birthday Celebration at Ilima. Rice, boiled chicken and broth, served with my contribution. . .cake!
Elder Diotati from Canada is a wonderful new Elder he just let the wrong person in the village cut his hair. He and Elder Patten make a powerful team.

I love seeing these sisters. They look diverse just like our ward. A mix of younger and older, and all enjoying the gospel together!
