Transfers, Baptisms, Birthdays

We attend as many baptisms as we can, we usually don't know the people being baptized but we like to support the missionaries and participate in these special occasions

I have finally decided I cannot keep up to all the birthdays so I am baking one cake a month for all those with birthdays that month.

The sweet sisters that live next door to us, Sisters Tauiliili, Jensen, Naldoza, and Merwal

August transfers, Elders Evangelista, Elcarte, Heinrich, and Sister Jensen.
Sure hate letting them go.

Y W Standards Night

The District Young Womens Standards Night was a huge success. We were ask to be on a panel along with some of the leaders and answer questions the girls had. Their concerns are much the same as girls at home, Dating, clothes, coloring their hair, beauty pagents, ect

After the questions they all participated in a fashion show to show modest clothing for all events; school uniforms, play wear, casual wear, church clothes, formal wear and wedding dresses.

The runway was several tables lined up and I was so nervous watching them in these high wedge shoes for fear someone would fall. There were a couple of close calls but no disasters.

Afterwards several girls ask us to take pictures with them. Even though this was a Y W event, the young men show up also to watch what's going on. It never ceases to amaze me how everyone participates and has such a good time at these activities.
