Brother Baker (who Tim is replacing) with two students who got loans through the PEF.  Bill (who we can't pronounce his name correctly) and Emanuel.  Both in welding school.

We have met many students while here.  They love coming to the office to talk to the Bakers.  The students come into the office to sit and tell us what is happening in their lives, how school is going, etc...

There are several men we have met who are past mission presidents, stake presidents, past stake presidents, and bishops.  A few work for the church in the offices doing different things for the church.  Real Estate, Employment Specialists, etc.  All less than 40 years old.  Of course life expectancy in Nigeria is only 45 years old.

Sister Underwood came to the storehouse and asked about you. I gave her your blog address. Looks like you are getting right to work.

I love that picture. It will be so fun for you guys to get to know these students so well. It will make it hard to leave when it's time to come home. Why is the life expectancy so low there?
