Sunday, July 28th

It was another restful Sunday in Tonga. Our Sunday School class continues to be awesome. How we love those people. Today we talked about what happens to us when we die. We were surprised at some of their questions, they really don’t understand all of it. We had a great discussion and we will have to finish the lesson next week. It is a topic that you can spend a lot of time on.

Our Relief Society was great, but the Tongan people really have no concept of time. Our teacher was not going to quit until she told us everything she wanted us to know. She was still asking questions at 20 minutes after the hour. Somehow we have got to help them understand the importance of staying within the time limits.

I cooked pork chops and baked potatoes for dinner today. YUMMMMMM!! Oh, the man who ate the pig’s head was not at church today, he is in the hospital with kidney stones! I can’t wait to see him next week and explain the dangers of eating pure FAT!!!

We were able to get in touch with David today. I am so grateful for our cheap little phone. It is the very best way to communicate with the kids. Other than the slight delay, it us just like talking to them on the phone at home.

We ended the day with a long walk. Alan’s leg has been bothering him again. I am sure that it was irritated while we were in Vava’u and he had to drive the van with a stick shift. Hopefully we can get it to settle down soon, those nerves have really been on fire today.
