We took Elder and Sister Needs to the airport later in the morning. It was hard to say goodbye to such good friends. It is also hard because they have such a tough assignment. Their apartment and office doesn't have running water, electricity is not constant, and they are probably the only white people in the entire city. That makes them a target for people to beg for money, food, etc. But they have willing hearts and knowledge that the Lord will provide a way for the mission to be able to function. Computer technicians are going to Mbuji-Mayi this week to connect their computers and get internet up and running for them. They took 4 suitcases back with them--most of it food. There is no grocery store in Mbuji-Mayi.

|Truck loaded with sand. Notice how rounded the load is. Looks like one fast stop and it will all slide off.|
There was no run/walk for me this morning. My back is still a bit out of whack. Elder Peterson "B" (the doctor) gave me some muscle relaxers and I have been taking that medication since last Thursday. It is helping to keep the pain at a minimum.
Today the men from the shipping company came to count the boxes we have ready to go to Mbuji-Mayi. There are 119 total boxes. They will pick them up tomorrow and hopefully it will be on a plane Saturday to Mbuji-Mayi and Elder and Sister Needs.
Mission Leader Council today at the Mission Home. Last one for President & Sister Thomas.

June 10 - Went to dinner at "the Catch" with the Peterson's and Sister Vance. I ordered talapia and it came with the HEAD ON. Totally shocked--forgot to take a picture of it. Tasted OK, but I did not eat the head.
