We invited the Elders from the office over for dinner. They are from left to right, Elder Sabey, (the new mission secretary) Elder Harper, in charge of mail and receiving, Elder Wright (in the middle) was the secretary and is going back in the field to prosolyte, Elder Frost, (Financial Secretary) and Elder Archibald (Pensionista, in charge of apartments). The two Assistants to the President, Elder Pollock and Elder Woodmansee, were not able to make it. They had a meeting with the President.
We had a big painting party. All of the Elders in the Catan Zone met at one of the apartments. We painted the apartment in about 5 hours. Not the most prof
essional painters but the apartment looked a lot better afterwards. Mom cooked up a roast and we had roast sandwiches, pasta salad, honeydue and cookies after the painting was completed. We all had a great time and were back to our apartments by 3:00.
I forgot to show a picture of our laundry room. It is just out the kitchen door on to a little patio. There is a scrub sink on the right that you can't see. The washers are very small and use very little water but clean the cloths really well. As you can see we hang the clothes out to dry. It is a lot cheaper than using an electric dryer and works well.
