That's 8,400 miles from home!

We arrived in Singapore not know anyone except the Boyters and the Bues's because we had been in contact with emailing. We were grateful to be met at the airport in Singapore by the Boyters. They have become very close friends. How we miss them! They are now in preparation for another mission.

Ot course, we can't forget the many missionaries we have grown to love.
|Elders, M, B, D, S, J, H, C, S, B, and J|
|Elders H, V, C, G, C, C, P, and M|
Sometimes the missionaries just have get themselves moving!
And then there have been several funny signs and labels of various kinds . . .

|What a clever name for toilet tissue!|

I'm not sure how they get these things down!
Sacrament meetings were sparsely attended this weekend. Gawai is this coming week. There were a total of 13-14 people, counting the eight missionaries who were there at Branch One. No Branch Presidency. Branch Two had 10 in attendance . . . the Branch President and his son. Everyone is off to their longhouses/kumpongs to be with their families for the next week. Some for the next two weeks. We've been invited to go to a member's longhouse this coming week. Hopefully there will be pictures to share.
Another blessing of being here is the addition of a new, healthy grandson. We are looking forward to getting acquainted with him and reacquainted with all the grandchildren. It's amazing how much they've all grown in the last nine months. (Nate is now taller than his mom or dad!)
|The grandkids nine months ago!|

Is a mission worth it? You'd better believe it. The Gospel is true. God bless all of you!
