Thursday, February 27th
We took Tiamani into work with us this morning and then she got a call from Liahona asking her to come and sub. That meant that we had to drive her all the way back. It is a 25 to 30 minute trip each way. By 10:00 we had done it 4 times! That really cut into our day. I just had time to make sure everything was up to date for our conference call this afternoon and finish up our finances for the month of February. I am always glad to have that job done! Just 3 more to go.
I am teaching the Relief Society lesson this Sunday, so I ran off a few handouts and it was time to leave for the day. That was a fast morning!
Our conference call was a little shorter today. Things are starting to stablize in Ha’api. They have safe drinking water now and different churches are sending food up every two weeks. Our stakes in Vava’u sent some root crops over this week and the report we received was that the government received the shipment, took credit for it and distributed it to everyone, EXCEPT THE MORMONS! Our members got NOTHING!! We couldn’t believe it. That won’t happen again. We will pay our own shipping from now on and the food will be delivered to the Stake Presidents and Bishops. They will give it out to everyone, not just the Mormons but definitely including the Mormons. We are in good shape with the budget, so my part was easy this week.
We had a good session at the temple tonight. Lovely way to end the day.
