HAPPY THANKSGIVING to our family and friends in America!!
Yesterday was a FUN day at the Church! After Seminary, I taught my keyboard lesson and then I taught a sewing class for the Relief Society sisters to learn to use the sewing machine sent from SLC. We had a GREAT time! Here is a sample of the bags we made and a few pictures of the ladies. We were there from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm! They also enjoyed the pumpkin bread I brought for refreshments.
|Yetmwork was SO excited about the|
bag she made!
We had our Thanksgiving celebration on Monday, November 25th since two of our Debre Zeyit Elders were being transferred the day before Thanksgiving. No turkeys here but we bought a few VERY skinny chickens! We DID have turkey gravy that my brother brought and pumpkin for pie, Stove Top, and cranberry sauce thanks to Amy Greer Kroff, who brought it to us last month when they came to adopt a baby here in Ethiopia!
(We are not supposed to post photos of the Elders for security reasons, so here is Elder Wold before we sat down to eat!)

|These cute kids, riding home from school on a horse-pulled cart,|
waved and waved at us with the BIGGEST smiles!! SO cute!!
|We can't get over how much donkeys carry!!|
|Every structure here is built with concrete. We enjoyed watching|
this guy using his artistic talents, chiseling a design on our neighbors'
|The trucks here also carry unbelievably BIG loads!|
We were afraid this was going to fall over on us in
Addis last Saturday!!
|We LOVE the trash "trucks" here! |
Check out their FANCY horse!
They come to our house every Saturday at
7:00 am and knock on our gate.
