This is when we built Victoria Cooper's house. This is a mat house. I was trying to fix/finish the roof after our carpenter cut himself really badly. Should I be up there? No.... Was I?. Yes!
And it was fun. Do you see Collin up on the roof?

This was shortly after I met Elder Baldwin. So far he is great. He is slowly adapting to LIB. The best thing is that he will eat anything, it's really impressive actually. (Collin is training Elder Baldwin who is new to the mission. What I love about this picture is the shoes. Collin left with black shoes and a shoe shining kit. I have already sent him new shoes. This picture just makes me smile)

We had a Zone Meal. This is what they call "GB." I have no idea what it stands for. It's made from cassava. You use your hands to eat and you don't chew it. Me, personally, I like to chew my food, but every once in a while I'll mix it up.

After emailing we went to the beach and played ultimate Frisbee with my new Frisbee. It was a lot of fun. Since we can't swim, we walked into the water. It felt so good. It was a great P-Day.

We did a service project with a lot of the branches. It was a Liberia wide service project. I think it was a world wide service project day for the church. It was a lot of fun. The members really enjoyed doing it. (Elder Park with Elder Tolar in the picture. After September 11, the church has been having a service project day on the Saturday following. We were doing a service project in a local cemetery here. It was fun to see that we were doing sort of the same thing on the same day!)
From his letter:
The weather fives us a hard time. When it rains it is hard to see people. A Lot of people get sick during the rainy season. That's why they fear it. There has been many times it has rained so hard that we literally can't go anywhere.
.... It's amazing to take a step back and look at everything Heavenly Father has done for us. It truly is amazing. Take a moment and look at how He has blessed you individually and as a family. It truly is amazing to see everything that He's done.
I love you all. I pray for each one of you. I know the Church is true and that my Savior lives. The Book of Mormon is true.
