Elder Draper cut Elder Petersons hair.
Sister Thomas trimmed my hair. I supposed we will have to learn to cut one anothers hair while we are here.
January 3 - We went with the Mikesells, Sister Vance, and Sister Cook to the Kasapa 2 Ward this morning. It is a more educated ward than most. The people very very friendly. Many of them speak some English. Some have come to Sister Cooks English classes. Sister Vance was very brave and bore her testimony. We are fasting today for Elder and Sister Bennetts daughter-in-law who has cancer. The Bennetts found this out on Christmas Eve while they were here.
I went to Primary again today. Senior and junior Primary were separated for class, two big classes. The brother who taught Senior Primary did a great job with the first lesson of the year, The Book of Mormon is a gift from God. I could follow along a little bit. Sister Mikesell came in and we were able to download the Primary manual and a few other manuals on Elder Petersons IPAD using her hotspot connection from her phone.
After the lesson the Junior Primary came in and all were taught a sharing time from the new outline. There was no singing time today, just an opening song and a closing song. One thing I was really impressed by was what they did at the very beginning of sharing time. The children started reciting the Articles of Faith in unison. They recited all of them--one through thirteen. I was amazed. The Junior primary did not know all of them but the children in the senior Primary did. They have spent some major time working with the children to complete that task.

I finally made my way outside thinking the others would be waiting for me. As I approached the van I found it full--but not full of missionaries--it was children. Sister Mikesell had quite a few sitting in the van with her.
