After church on Sunday the Elder's began to call home. We have 14 Elder's in our Zone so it takes time to get them all taken care of. We have another Senior couple in our zone and they also have two computers set up for the Elders to use. We set up one computer downstairs on the wifi and one upstairs in our apartment. Downstairs they got to show off the view from the deck.
Next morning Monday at 6am the first phone call home to Utah. It's 2pm there. It was a very long day. Elder Tiffany made pancakes for breakfast and Sister Tiffany made Gazpacho soup for lunch. Later that same day, Sister Eakin made sandwiches for the Elders. All the boys were well fed and happy. It was a busy 3 day weekend for all.
We then followed it up with a couple of trips to the
outer island called "Romalum".
There is no doubt for us that this is the Lords errand we are on. The GPS locating of the members has been very beneficial. They are truly very happy that we are making the effort to find them and check on their needs. Fortunately, our Savior has given us a direction finder and guide that will help us even when we cannot see beyond discouraging obstacles. We refer to the gift of the Holy Ghost. But we must be willing to use and rely on this divine gift, and we must keep it in good repair.
