 This is our pump house where our water pump is. You can see the doves all around the top on a metal pipe.  They are getting water and shade.  Below is a hooded vulture in the tree just outside our apartment.  Brent took this picture from our apartment.

 On our walk Saturday 11 March 2017 we saw this bird fly past us into the tree.  It is a greet Parrot.  It was pretty cool to see one in real life in the wild.
 We walk past this wall most days on our walk.  I have been wanting a picture and took it today.  We walked to our produce market today by Chorthrums and bought from our cute little lady.  I took her a copy of the pictures from last week and she was so pleased.  She was showing all the other shop owners on the street and calling me her friend.  The other ladies on the street thanked us for the picture.  I think they all felt pleased for her and it reflected on them. 

 We were almost home and saw these men building some little stores.  This is only about 50 feet from where we come into our compound.  I wonder what they will sell in these new shops. 
 Brent and his gardens.  The top picture is his pineapple garden.  He has planted all these pineapples from pineapples we have eaten.  This is how he waters his garden here.  The bottom is his regular garden.  The vines you can see are the red greek squash vines, the seeds we got from Jason.  There is not a squash on them, but the vines are beautiful.  There is some watermelon vines by Brent mixed in with the squash and Brent found 1 little watermelon today.  I hope it makes it. 

 Friday 10 March 2017 we went to the Women's meeting at Kissy for the District Conference.  This is the group of Primary Leaders.  These are amazing women and we talked about songs they knew and 4 of the sisters knew "A Child's Prayer"  We sang it and the spirit was so strong.  I was so proud of them for learning the song and teaching it to the Primary children in their Branch.  The church is growing.  The bottom picture after the conference and is by far one of the sweetest pictures I have taken here.  This little boy watched Brent as he was carrying materials out to the truck.  Brent asked him if he needed help finding his mom and he said yes.  He took Brent's hand and they walked to find his mom.  Brent and the little boy just sauntered and talked and I really felt the spirit.  I do love my eternal companion and my missionary companion. We both love the children.  

Elder Peterson, the red head, made some muffins and brought them to share with Brent and I.  He said this was his first time making them and they were yummy.  Left to Right is Elder Amoah-Baafi, Elder Gamil, Elder Peterson, and Elder Ayabowei
 Brent even took one, ate it and liked it.  He usually doesn't like muffins but liked the ones Elder Peterson made.  We love the young missionaries to come to the office.  They always make us smile.
