View from my deck
Friday, April 24, 2015
Suddenly, as I'm sitting on my deck eating breakfast I look out and see the trees rustling in the forest. The trees sway back and forth and move like an ocean wave towards the fence that seperates the forest from the apartments. Then at the top of a swinging tree branch I see two baby vervet monkeys peering at me. I know they are eyeing my piece of toast. At a closer glance more and more monkeys start to appear and make their way over the fence. I know what happens next, I've seen it happen over and over again. They'll search the apartments looking for an open sliding door and raid the house of food, clothing and even toothbrushes. Time for me to slip inside and lock my doors!

Lesotho is a small country inside of Africa. They have a seperate king and government. It is one of the areas we serve. Brother and Sister Moorosi and their family are faithful members of the church.
|Sister Moorosi said they are probably the only family in Lesotho that own UNO cards. The missionaries gave them to their family and they play at least once a week.|
|A very swwet family we have come to know in the country Lesotho.|
Elder Cinquini and I went to an neighborhood orphanage in Umlazi to show the movie FROZEN to the children. We were told there would be 20 - 25 children, so I prepared peanut butter and jam sandwiches with organges for a light lunch. Well, 52 children came and we had enough for all to eat and to spare! The children were so sweet and good the entire movie. It really was a treat for us to spend time with them.
