|"Oh No ooo" I stuck these shoes in my suitcase when I first arrived in Suva, and the mold fairy decorated them!|
No worries they cleaned up fine when I washed them off and dried them with a paper towel.
|Flat in Savusavu that a senior couple (the Muirs) lived in. They just finished their mission|
|Vaneeta neighbor and landlady Elder Ledoux and Elder Hansen , Sister Hogge|
|View from the second level porch of the Elder's flat|
|Missionary's do have a sense of humor. I understand the other prosthetic leg|
is in the missions downstairs storage room in Suva
|The drive through this deep rut up to missionaries flat required 4 wheel driving (it's deeper then this looks)|
|We went out to one of the many villages and we had to traverse a stream. Elder Hogge had to get|
out so he could wade through the stream. One of the Elder's captured it on his camera so I post it next week.
|This is a road that leads to another out of the way village. It's so lush and green that it's hard to see the tire trail|
|Sister Jesse came out to greet us. She has had a stroke and lost the function of her right hand. When I asked her about|
her family she excitedly opened her hand twice and put up 3 fingers (there are 13 in her family)
|These people are so loving and accepting. We learn so much from them.|
They don't have much in the way of worldly possessions, but they find joy in the day to day experiences of life.
|This is Douglas (name sake of Douglas Muir senior missionary who just left) his second and third name is Dorry Dakota (Missionaries who were here teaching earlier) Holding him is Sister Gade (sound like Ghandi) his Grandmother.|
|LDS church in town of Savusavu|
|Elder Hansen and the kids|
|Church at another angle|
|To the side of the road is this wood bridge/road that leads to a small island|
with 3-4 pretty little huts. May be future home to a resort.
|Village of Nabua and the ocean view behind the Elder's flat (only used part of the time when they are in the area)|
|LDS church in the village|
|Cool flower I hadn't seen before|
|The inside of the village LDS church. A podium, sacrament table and a mat for everyone to sit on. They had a bookshelf at the back of the room with Book of Mormons and hymn books|
|inside of the Elder's flat a bathroom, sink filter system, but water catching tank in back isn't working|
Elders use this pvc pipe for shower when they have water.
|some children on the sid of the road, gathering and bringing something green back home for their mom's|
|Kids in the river by their home, when they saw I was taking their picture, yelled Bula!|
|This heart shaped vine grows all over other plants and trees in certain areas. It covers everything so much that you |
feel like if you wandered off the road, you could get lost in it and no one would be able to find you.
|View from the balcony of our hotel room at the Hot Springs Hotel where we are staying|
|Elder Ledoux was given a bunch of bananas by a family they stopped in to visit and give the other Elders key back.|
|Look at this cool piece of driftwood ! Too bad it won't fit in my suitcase.|
|Cool Mosaic made out of the colorful inside of sea shells|
|Mosaics on the floor of our hotel|
|These are called spider Mollusks |
(like the shell I have back home from Grandma Michaelis)
|Being silly Sister Wells, Sister Terry ward members, Sister Hogge|
|Okay serious picture|
