|Elder and Sis Busath and us|
at lunch last Saturday
Last Saturday we had lunch with Elder and Sis Busath at a Mexican restaurant in Hunters Creek. They're nice to associate with us older seniors. They work in the mission office doing apartment planning, contracting, furnishing, and financial.
Tuesday we went with Sis Lowry and Jacklin to teach a young man and his sister a first lesson. They're from Brazil, been here a few years, and speak excellent English. They have good knowledge about God, the Bible, and prayer. A great experience for us, including a chance to speak some Portuguese and some talk about Brazil. We took this picture of a Christmas nativity at the house next door while waiting for the missionaries to meet us.

The Christmas wreaths are still on the horse statues on Hiawassee Rd, and look good with the palm trees. Even the manhole covers are decorated here. Our temperatures dipped from 80 degrees last Monday to the high 50's thursday morning when we walked (wearing long-sleeve t-shirts), but should get back to 80 again next Saturday.
|Birds at Hunters Creek apartment|
Thursday and Friday we worked in the mission office on IT things (me) and medical (Jan). Some days Sis Nielson goes to medical appointments while I work at the office. Saturday we moved eight boxes of things to the apartment in Hunters Creek where we'll move next transfer day. The lake and birds below are seen here from the balcony at that apartment.
|Sis Eager, Leandro, and Sis Barnes|
Saturday night we went to a baptism in the Windermere Ward, where Leandro was baptized. He was baptized by Bro Sillito, and was taught by Sis's Eager and Barnes. Leandro was born in Brazil but has been here most of his life. He is fun to talk to!
