These beautiful sisters were in Relief Society today with their sleeping babies. The sister in the middle taught the lesson with her baby sweetly sleeping on her back. The sister on the right rocked her baby asleep when he was fussy. He went right to sleep once he was in place on her back. It is amazing how they do this. And no babies ever fall out!!! We need to do this in the US -- frees up you arms for other things like teaching and carrying!!

Yes, Emilie, we found it!! What you are seeing is a shriveled and petrified carrot. This is not just any carrot, though. This carrot has been all over the world!! When Connor was 5 yrs old, Vicki came home to stay with him for a few days while we went to Biloxi, Mississippi for an IAAI convention and when we got back home we found this half-eaten carrot on our nightstand. So Mike put it in Vicki's suitcase when she left to go New York for an internship. The next time we went to see Vicki after she and Morgan were married, the carrot ended up in our suitcase when we got home. It seems to end up in the luggage of whoever is traveling. It has also been to Hawaii, California, Mexico, back and forth from Utah to Las Vegas and even to Bulgaria with Emilie and Branden on their honeymoon. Now it is resting in Sierra Leone, West Africa for the next 17 months! amazing little carrot! Wonder where it will go next?

on the road to Kissy. No need for fast food drive- thru here; the street merchants bring everything to the car. We ate our way back to the mission office by buying roasted cashews, deep-fried banana chips (taste like potatoe chips), sweet roll and bread all from the comfort of the car as it was stalled in traffic.

Pres & Sis Roggia, (left) our new mission president; and Pres & Sis Squires our first mission pres. We are so glad we got to meet the Squires and get to know them a "small small" bit - they are wonderful and dedicated to this mission and the missionaries. We look forward to working with Pres & sis Roggia and know they will be equally as great in this mission. We are thankful to be here with them. They are now the "greenies" in the mission at least for the next two weeks until we get 8 new Elders from the Ghana MTC.
