Willing child

This was the first little one that would let us hold her.  Friends of the Matina family on our first dinner night where we provided the meal in their home.  Served grandma Larson's noodles.  They were a big hit.

Brave shopping

Stopped and bought the light colored head go cabbage and a bag of onions.  Cost R10 which is $1.00. Pretty cheap

More pictures of Motherwell, streets of our members

P-Day, went hunting with the camera.

Animals and huge sand dunes

Red faces=circumcision

In this tribe, When a young man turns 17, it is time to become a man.  They have their fore skin cut off and then they spend 1 week alone in the bush.  They can show no pain.  Then for 3 months they paint their faces red with make up, wear this suit and hat.  Then they are considered a man.  They move out of the house, build a lean-to onto there parents house and life starts as a man.  This guy is the 2nd counselor in the Motherwell Branch.  The other one is just off the street.  They are everywhere.

Cleaning assignment for church, just like at home, RS Pres. Has sun screen on her face.

Ants, Ants, Ants

We are always fighting these little buggars.  Left out some bacon that we could not finish the other day.  2 hours later, this is what we had.  A steady string coming in through the window down the wall across the servette and onto the bacon.

Eggs and noodles

Next week we will start making appointments with the members to bring in a meal.  We will do that to win trust and they will have people there to teach.  We will take noodle soup.

More Motherwell scenes of where we work everyday.

Scenes from Motherwell

This might be why the Beef is a little chewy.

Motherwell Chapel

This is where we meet.  It is in a school class room.  Never enough chairs.  Primary meets in another room and out under a tree.  We have Sunday School in this room and also Priesthood Mtg.  Relief Society kicks the primary outside during their hour.
