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.

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.

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.
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.
