Goodbyes And Baptisms

A young man who joined the Church when we first arrived.
He wanted to see us off at the airport and after two weeks we finally talked him out of it. Visitors can not get in and it would be 3:30 in the morning.

Lastest new member on the other side of the city. She is beasutiful in green and rejoiced by bringing her whole family. Wonderful people!

Life Is Always On Going

On the roof top across the street a woman is sorting through food. In this hot climate there is lots of cleaning and re cleaning to keep the food ready to eat.

Another Goodbye

This goodbye was to the District leader and his family. Notice the arm around the shoulder and the hand holding.
All graduates of the marriage classes.
Romeo and Juliette, the newly marrieds.
The District President is a man of sound judgement and of course his wife is very smart and intuitive.

Winding Up The Birthday

A gift is as much fun for the giver as the receiver.
Two glasses to remember India's unique way of drinking and not touching the rim.
No one was passed over. We all got gifts. Even the little boys got cars.
