Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

Flat MaCayela and the Cleaning Day

My great niece MaCayela came to visit for a while. She came in a large envelope asking us to take her around Guam and report back to her school class. We had gone to the Post Office and were on our way down to Talafofo to clean a missionary house so we took her along. Flat MaCayela was a good supervisor!

The Talafofo house had been locked up, unoccupied, for 7 weeks. In a tropical island think of what can happen to a dark, humid house. The cleaning crew went in to wash off all the mold and freshen the house up for the sisters to move in.

This is Elder Colemere. He is an Assistant to the President. He comes from Alpine, Utah and will be spending Thanksgiving there this year. We will be sad to see him go.

This is the other Assistant, Elder Tuaitanu. He has been on Chuuk for a lonnnng time and just came to Guam this transfer. He is teaching the whole Zone Chuukese so they can teach the Chuukese people here on Guam.

This is Elder Cook. What you can't see is that he is on a 6 foot ladder, standing on the very top! He claims he is very experienced working on tall ladders but I looked the other way and just prayed there would be no accidents.

This is Sister Anitema. She is from Australia and I love to listen to her. She is one of the sisters that will be living in the house. That gave her great motivation to tell the elders exactly what needed to be done.

This is Sister Wingate. She also will be living in the house. The floor is old linoleum and was covered with big streaks of I don't know what. Several of us scrubbed and scrubbed to get the floor back to it's original color.

Unfortunately, Elder Schuster, who is from New Zealand, did not get his picture taken but he too worked really hard.

I have to give all the Elders and Sisters kudos. They did a fantastic job and I am sure that the sisters are going to enjoy their new abode.

That is one cleaned up apartment!
Flat Macayela is kind of like my Ginger. It's fun to send pictures to the kids.
