James, one of our guards, Brent and I. This is in the church yard at a wedding of George, another guard. James pictured here is the one that helped Brent the first time clear his garden. It was our P-day so we weren't dressed up, but we went to take some pictures.
Saidu and I. Saidu helps us in the office as a volunteer. He is a returned missionary and going to school.
Brent and I with Abduli and his wife Moona. Abduli helps with our IT, and any repairs and upkeep of the mission. Moona helps with shopping and fixing food when our new missionaries come. They are expecting their first baby.
George and his Bride. George is also one of our guards, and they are both members of the church. Their weddings are pretty lavish. They dress to the hilt and I love their dresses. This is how they dress on Sunday too. Aren't they beautiful?
More sisters at the Wedding. The sister on the left in the picture below is getting ready to go on a mission. She just submitted her papers and she is one I helped. Her name is Salamatu Kalokoh and she is a sweet heart. We have become good friends. She is a member of the Dwarzak ward and serves as a counselor in the Relief Society.
The next three pictures are a birthday party held a week after the wedding also in the church yard. This girl was turning 10 and her baby sister was turning 1. I didn't get a picture of her.
This family has a lot of money for here to have a birthday party like this. I loved the Coke chairs and sun shades. This cute lady is the Grandma and she was dancing to the music. They had a DJ and music from loud speakers. You can see the DJ and speakers in the back left. They had a good time.
