Some fun pictures from our week….

Sometime we have a craving for something like a good Whopper Junior from Burger King.  The missionaries told us about a place called King Burger.  With a name like that, we knew we had to go try it!  Can you read on the menu where it says, "With burgers, crunchy chicken, once you eat, you will never forget."  They are right.  We won't!

For months I've watched the pregnant mama goat at the mission office wondering when she was going to have her babies.  Then, I didn't see her for a while and thought she was gone. This week, there she and papa goat were with their two babies.  If I 'baaa' at them, they will lift their heads to look at me.  Wonder what I'm saying to them?

Took the Mission AP's - Elder Finau and Elder Dahlin - to exchange their US dollars into LD - Liberian dollars.  You can see what the exchange rate was for that day - 87.5.  That means, every US dollar is worth 87.5 Liberian dollars.

Last Sunday was the Bushrod Island District Primary Easter Program.  This is Isaac Weah who is 12 years old and in the 10th grade.  He played for the program and did a beautiful job.  His father, standing by Elder Berrett, taught him to play.  The interesting thing about that is, Brother Weah can't play the piano himself.  

Isaac told us that when Elder Holland came to visit, two years ago, he played for that meeting.  Sister Holland told him she had never seen someone so young play for such a large group.  That she expected to see him playing for the Tabernacle Choir some day.  He could do it!!

Here's a picture of the Primary children getting ready for their Easter Program.  I wish you could have heard them sing.  It brought tears to our eyes.  They knew the songs so well and sang out LOUD and clear.  They also acted out part of the Easter story. It was a beautiful program. 
Some day, they will be the leaders of the church in Liberia.


  1. Thanks for sharing all the pictures Mom, I love them. It helps to see where you are and that you are happy. You look so cute. I love seeing the Primary children, they are so sweet. I love you and miss you.

  2. That's AMAZING he learned to play from someone who can't play the piano himself! I agree, those children are the leaders and future of the church in Africa. I think Liberia is in good hands. I would've LOVED to have been their for their primary Easter program.
