Random sampling of our wonderful life on mission

Baptism at Chainama branch, Lusaka

President treated  for ice cream after our 5 hour drive to the Copperbelt. Elders Chola, Dettamanti, Tayembi. Amison, Chinunda, Packer, Allred...just a sampling of the greatest missionaries in the world!
We helped with the Operation Smile mission in Lilongwe in August. 
Mariam came with her grandmother, 8 hours on a bus. Her parents died of HIV AIDS when she was little. At 4 years old she had an abscess that was cut out. She came hoping to have her lip fixed and her hopes were realized. I wish I had the after picture!

That is one big pot of nshima for the mourners of President Liyalii. These women have arms of steel.
President Liyalii of the Lilanda branch passed away.
 Family and branch members gathered at Sister Liyalii's home to mourn.
Some sit outside and some sit inside. For hours they grieve with the wife and children. 
Simply the BEST! Leif calls it homemade peach ice cream.

                           We found this bad boy in our bedroom under the curtain in Lilongwe. That is a serving spoon my brave companion used to corral him and fling him outside. Giant African centipede or  E. trigonopodus.

Oh, how we miss the peach drinkable yoghurt! And so many other things you have touched on, minus the giant centipedes! We know Sister Clifford's parents, they are in our Stake. You are doing a great work and you remain in our prayers.

Elder Massey always writes about how happy the people of Zambia are. These pictures capture their true joy! We always think he looks so tanned when we see solo pictures of him but when you put him with a bunch of Africans he still sticks out like a big white Canadian thumb! Love the pictures. Thanks for sharing!
