 Tim and I, along with President Adebayo, Ike Ibe (pronounced E-Bay) Sister Winget and Elder Winget went to Field of Dreams or called FSD to talk to the owner (woman in black) of ideas to help her educate more people and more skills.  She is very excited to think of the possibilities.  Not to make herself richer.  She is interested in helping her country grow and prosper.  She is a woman of high integrity and intelligence and vision.  It is always an honor to work with her.  Hopefully I will have more to post when we work out the details.  If it works, it will be thrilling!

Catch up time

I haven't been posting for a while because I couldn't get any pictures to attach to my blog.  I was able to get a few pictures to attach, so, here is a few notes.  
We have many students and friends who think we need traditional African clothes.  I have a dress made out of the same cloth that Elder Jennings has this outfit from.  It is beautiful.  There is one small problem.  The seamstress made it too small.  I had her take the seams out and it is still too small.  I will try once more to get it the correct size.
We have gone shopping 3 times to Balogun.  Twice we have been rained on.  The first time it rained very hard on us.  It was an adventure for sure.  First you walk very carefully through the water puddles and then you get so wet, it really doesn't matter.
We have had a few water issues in the entire building.  When the building was built the plumbers put in too small and inferior pipes.  This is a 4 year old building with water pipes breaking.  We had issues with water leaking out of a wall.  We were moved out of our apartment for them to fix it.  Our two day project turned into two weeks.  We are back in now.
On one day of adventures we got into a car to leave and noticed we didn't have enough gas.  Our driver found some gas and poured it into the car.  We have been having some serious gas shortages in Nigeria.  It looks like it may be ending.   There for a while most gas stations were closed...out of gas.
