January in Chuuk: Zone Mtg and Branch Presidency Training
Here is the photo of our Elders at the most recent Zone Meeting, January 6, 2014! Let's see if we can name them all: Back Row standing tall: Elders Plocher, Allen, and Fabiano. Next row down: Elders Hunter, Peck, Simpson, Jonas, Crisp Telona, McEwan, Selander, Kleven, Fermanis, Canakaivata (our newest Elder--from Fiji), Mackie and DeLore. Kneeling Row: Elders Rainey, Vanisi, Johnson, Vehikite, Schroath. Seated: Elders Toa and Obray!
This picture shows the Elders gathered again, but the bottom picture includes Elders Monson and Roque (on the ends) with Vanisi and Vehikite. Elders Monson and Roque were late to the meeting so they missed out on the group shot (but we did want to include them)!
Here, President Tarsi Wainis is training the Branch Presidencies and the District Young Men's Presidency (though there were a few absent)! He reviewed things concerning Church Welfare, Branch President Responsibilities, and the upcoming youth service project on Weno! He works hard at keeping things running and it is a pleasure to be working with him.
Below you see evidence of the tuna (angarap) sandwiches and chocolate chip bar cookies that were provided for both meetings by Sister Crisp. It is hard slaving over a hot stove in Chuuk, when you just don't know if it is going to work like it should and it is just as hot outside!!
