House Guests

We arrived home on Wednesday after being away almost a week so the house could be fumigated.  We spent a restful night in our own bed, but when Sister Stevenson woke up and stepped into the shower, she met this unwelcomed house guest.

He is either a survivor or slipped in after the bomb went off.  Either way, we did a catch and release and we hope he didn't get in the way we think he got in.

Over the last two weeks since the last blog we have:

We rejoiced with our daughter, Janee', as she received her Endowment in the Boise, Idaho Temple.

 All of her older siblings were able to be with her.

Janee' and her husband, Cody, will be moving from Texas to Florida next week where Cody will complete fighter pilot training with the US Air Force -- Flying F-22s.  

Attended the Cape Coast Ghana Stake conference on Saturday and Sunday:

Two sessions were held on Sunday to accommodate the size of the stake.  Filled the place in the morning and nearly full in the afternoon.  We are hoping to be able to divide this stake early next year.

In one of my baptismal interviews this week, the woman said she had originally been introduced to the Church in 2000 by a co-worker in Accra.  She had believed the message, but did not get baptized because of the criticism of her friends.  Recently, after having moved from Accra, she saw our missionaries and asked to be taught.  I asked her if her co-worker knew she was being baptized.  She said she had no way to contact him.  We agreed that he would be so happy if he knew.  Sometimes, you never know the good you do.
