Last Temple Training and Preparation – Tuesday in Kilili and Wednesday in Mitini we finished the last preparations for the temple trip. What an exciting time for these three families who have worked so hard to prepare. Sunday was the gathering day in Nairobi. We visited Mitini Branch so Wambuas rode into town with us after the block of meetings– more peanut butter sandwiches! All three little girls were wonderful travelers and we hope that continues on the plane tomorrow! The others traveled by Matatu and we all, including President and Sister Broadbent, met at the mission office this evening. There's excitement in the air and there probably won't be much sleep this evening (especially since we will be picked up to leave for the airport by 4:30 a.m.!) We hope all goes well checking in that many people. We feel like we have a large family.
Primary Program – Elder and Sister Beecher who are serving in Kitale came to stay with us and will be in our apartment for Thanksgiving. They arose early and went with us to the Hills for church today. The primary program at Mitini was fun. We love the children and they really know how to sing (not always the right melody) but they enjoy it. They even learned actions to some of the songs and were so proud of themselves.
Stay safe and well and know we love you. We'll let you know how things went at the temple next week!
