We were asked to drive her to Addis from Debre Zeyit after
Church today since the flight is at 5:00 am in the morning!
We stopped by our house in DZ and picked mangoes, tomatoes,
beans and lettuce!
Bob had to get a picture with two of our favorite
guards at the Debre Zeyit chapel. We miss seeing
I helped Meseret (Mesi) enter her family info on FamilySearch on
Friday and got to hold cute Daisy, the youngest member
of the group going to the Ghana Temple to be sealed!
Both Mesi and her husband Eyob are returned missionaries.

We had a FUN YM/YW Activity in the Meganagna Branch
on Saturday planned by Elder and Sister Moses. There were
13 YM there (but no YW).... : / They ate sloppy joes, played
human foosball and other games and we talked about Lehi's
Dream and holding to the rod. We had 18 in our Seminary/
Institute class afterwards.
After class, I spent 2 1/2 hours with Solomon's Grandma, Zergi,
recording her family history names and dates (with the help of one
of our elders translating her Amharic) and Solomon was writing
his history too... He is the cutest thing! When Bob and I visit the
Meganagna Branch he runs to us and throws his arms around our
necks and kisses our cheeks in the parking lot!!
Ruth (12) and Yeabsra (8) came by to visit us just before we left
for the YM/YW activity Saturday. I gave Yeabsra a little gift for
her birthday (which was Friday) and taught them to play a few tunes
on the keyboard I found upstairs in one of the closets! They loved it!
They picked up their July FRIEND magazine and Ruth gave us a
quiz on the June FRIEND. Their family is Ethiopian Orthodox
but Ruth LOVES the Church and reading the FRIEND and the
Book of Mormon and her parents don't mind.
I caught this perfect photo showing how the lines in the road and
the lanes have nothing to do with where the cars go. There was
a 4th line of cars to the right of us on this two lane road Saturday.
This is for all the Mountain View TORO fans out there! This
would have been so much fun to have when our kids were TOROs!
Paul and Janna Morrell invited all the Meganagna missionaries
to lunch at the Sheraton Hotel in Addis one day. We had a great time!
