|Poinsettia's in July|
|Everyone in George was so excited to see the "snow" on George peak. To me it looked like a dusting. I felt lucky to get the picture since it was gone the next day and the clouds where covering the mountain most of the time.|
Welcome to winter in South Africa,
It as been a most unusual 2 weeks in George. As you can see by the picture in snowed on a Friday and was about 8 degrees C, about 46 degrees F in town. It was very cold to me, we enjoyed our 2 small electric heaters and especially our electric blanket. It rains very hard here and the wind is something else. Marshall who lives in a small shack (bungalow) said he was afraid that his house was going to blow down. Last Saturday we had a huge boom and we didn't have internet until Thursday.

|Last night we had our monthly activity which was a Family Home Evening. The Pangels demonstrated a FHE, their son Houston was a crack up and it was so much fun to see a "real" FHE in action.|
|After the "lesson" part of the FHE we went downstairs and played games. Everyone who came had a great time. This game was spoons.|
|I had to put these into my account of Africa. ONLY brown eggs are to be found|
|Until I get tired of seeing these gorgeous sunrises and sunsets they will be part of my blog. They are truly awe inspiring to Elder Richins and I.|
|Isn't she a cutie, we had a FHE with Balangila family and their daughter and I were singing.|
The Wise Man Built His House Upon a Rock
|We enjoyed a nice lunch at the wharf. Elder Richins is telling his Elephant story, ha, ha, He has gotten a lot of mileage out of that one, especially here in SA.|
|Their were 2 baptisms today. Elder Richins, Veraqauzi, Stanley, and Elder Dladla|
|What a good looking group.|

|I took these 3 pictures as I was finishing up my blog today. All I did was look out the window and shot.|
We hope all of you have a great week. Life is good. Life is challenging. Life is worth living. We love you all and appreciate so much your notes.

I wanted to show you some pictures of braided hair, which is just a small sampling of what I see. Even the little girls get it done. It takes about 2 hours for these to be done and I have heard it also hurts.
