March 13 - 19, 2017 - Kolwezi Zone Conference

March 13 - President and Sister Shumard flew to Kolwezi for Zone Conference, Interviews and trying to locate an apartment for Elder and Sister Davis.

I took time to wash 5 loads of laundry, and clean and organize my closet and drawers.

March 14 - Today is Griffin's 6th Birthday.

Usually someone is sitting on this log
Walking the golf course this morning.

Between two fairways we came upon a patch of squash. Yellow flowering plants but no veggies.

Pond - notice the reflection in the water

Went to the airport three times today, trying to get Elder Ngalamulume on a flight home. Finally accomplished the goal!
Large truck carrying heavy load; the one in front of us is empty.

Tonight's dinner: Salmon, wild rice, jello with cream, and a zucchini muffin with chocolate chips

March 15 - Today is Mom Peterson's 94th birthday. At 9:30 p.m. we got to FaceTime with Sarah, Aleece, and Erin. We just missed Liz. For some reason our ipads were not ringing when they called an hour earlier. We did not know Daylight Savings Time had taken effect. They took Cafe Rio and ate lunch with Grandma Peterson. It was nice to see  her via FaceTime. I think she likes to see us too. And, of course, Lynden was there as well showing off her crawling ability.

March 16 - Morning walk sights.

Notice the gun on the left with the barrel stuck in the ground.

Dragon fly on the ground

Elder Eastmond holding the dragonfly so we can see the delicate wings.

Nice enclosed area by the gate to this home.

Ilunga using a hand pump to add more diesel fuel to the generator.

Feather found under the tree in front of Dr. & Sister Peterson's house. I wonder what bird it came from.

Beautiful roses in front of the office.

Rose bushes remind me of Grandma Peterson's house.
March 17 - Morning walk

Two Congolese oriole birds (orange)

Love these bird of paradise flowers

We had a new sister arrive today. She has been in the Ivory Coast waiting for a visa to come to the DRC. She went to Ghana for training then was temporarily assigned in her home country until the visa came.

March 18 - Was in a baking mood today. Put on the movie "Lion King" and listened to it while I baked.

Cracked wheat bread
Delicious, toasted with honey

We had a frozen puff pastry in the freezer. I looked online for recipes using it. The one chosen was Petite pain au chocolate. It just used chocolate chips inside, roll it up, and bake. Tasted pretty good.

March 19 - On the way to church we saw these boy scouts walking.

 On the way home from church, this picture was taken as we drove across the river. The water is high.
