Here he is blowing out the candles on the cake.
June 7 - I was waiting in the car while Elder Peterson went into Jambo to pick up something. I noticed a young boy go over to the 55 gallon drum that is being used as a trash barrel. He rummaged through until he found a bottle of water. He unscrewed the lid and drank the little bit that apparently was left in it.
We then drove to Likasi to take some supplies President Shumard needed. We arrived just in time to take Sister Shumard to pick up the chicken schwarmas for lunch. We attended the balance of the Likasi Zone Conference.
June 8 - Sister Eastmond with Agneau, Anna, and Merveille who picked flowers for her.
We then went to the home of Sister Sina Tshiyamba. She and some of her children are members, but her husband is not. He was home today so we met him for the first time. He sat down and listened for a while, then when we started looking up a scripture he went outside. We gave Sister Sina a picture we took of her and the 4 children who were at our last appointment.
June 9 - Going to deliver braséro and charbonne to two apartments this morning.

There was a training meeting today for all trainers and their companions in the entire mission. Those from Likasi and Kolwezi traveled down last night to be here today. Here is a picture of the ones who arrived on time for the meeting. We went for a few minutes at lunch time to take care of some items with a few of the missionaries.
Saturday, June 10 - I don't go walking on Saturdays anymore. It seems like I can't get going on housework or cooking if I walk. Elder Peterson and Elder Eastmond are the only ones who go now.
Today I hurried to do the housework so I could cook. Made pancakes for breakfast and froze the remaining ones.
Using the vegetables we bought last week, a huge put of chicken soup and a layered green salad was the result. When we eat the salad, I will add the tomatoes and avocado to the top. It should last for two meals. Grated zuchinni and carrot grace the darker colored muffins--the lighter colored ones are blueberry.
