Sorry we are late; May 21 - 27, 2012

This was a very enjoyable busy week.  On Monday Sister Honda took us to the Kikuchi Gorge under Mt Aso.  The stream and surrounding vegetation could not have been more beautiful.
We love waterfalls
Will you marry me! Again?

Sister Honda, everything is so green.
Monday morning, evening and Tuesday we transported missionaries for Specialized Training.

One of our favorite missionaries Tsutamori Shimai.

Tuesday Bess shopped to finish buying her accessories for her Yukata.

Wednesday we traveled to Fukuoka and then flew to Okinawa with President and Sister Margetts, Elder and Sister Rogers, Clements Choro and Ahn Choro.  We, the Rogers, Sister Margetts, and Elder and Sister Watson enjoyed sightseeing while the APs and President  Margetts did training and interviews with the young missionaries.
The sun was shining, so you need a new hat. Watson, Rogers, Christensen, and Margetts Shimai.
Only one Elder needed a hat with the sun. Rogers, Christensen, and Watson Choro.

We went to the Okinawa Glass Factory.  Wonderful creations.

We stayed in Fukuoka Friday night and attended the Temple on Saturday.  We also bought Tom two new suits.  We got home Saturday evening in time to attend the ward missionary meeting.  Got up early Sunday, Bess made two Zucchini Chocolate cakes for the evening guests, called Mom to celebrate her 85th birthday and still made it to church at 9am.  We made Texas Hash and shared it with Brother Oaks.  After dinner, the young single adults came to our home to learn about marriage.  Brother Oaks is a good teacher.

Brother Oaks and Tom.  Brother Oaks is leaving to go home next month. He will leave a big hole in our lives.
Young Single Adults, plus we "older" ones.
 Mosiah 2:17 And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn awisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the bservice of your cfellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.

This was shared with us today when we were inspecting apartments.  They thanked us for our service to them.  This makes us glad we chose to serve a mission.

Mom and Dad,
