|Some of the elders enjoying the fire pit|
We had the closest meal we could come up with to resemble a 4th celebration: potato salad, baked beans, roasted chili hot dogs, salsa and chips, roasted/burned marshmallows, lots of water, and blue cake with white frosting and red raspberries on top.
We are missing one elder - we have been waiting for a transferring elder from another part of the mission. We are experiencing some difficulties with Visas. A branch missionary has been working with us, but he had a job interview (Yea for him-they are few and far between for people here!). The missionaries enjoy getting together - they live in two different apartments and attend meetings in two different buildings, and they like a chance to relax.....and eat!
Beautiful, red sun - it was a lovely day, not too hot because it is winter=cold/dry season here. A couple of the elders even said they feel cold in the mornings! I still run the air conditioner at night and most of the day, but it is not any where near as uncomfortable as in the hot/rainy season.
These two took turns having a little siesta! The sticks are what we used to roast the hot dogs and marshmallows.
