Random Pictures

Great memories we could not leave out, although we are afraid we have left out some important things.  As we look back we are so grateful for the opportunities and experiences that we had on our mission.  It is wonderful to be a missionary and be able to devote all your time, talents, and energy to building the Kingdom of God.  We learned so much and made so many friends that we will love through the eternities.  We are so grateful for our Heavenly Father and his protection, guidance, patience, tender mercies, and loving kindness.  We learned that we didn't need to fear.  He was always watching over us.  We learned to rely on Him and do the things he wanted us to do.  When we did that miracles would happen.  We pray that he will continue to bless and strengthen the Church in the amazing country of Guyana.

Many men rode their bicycles caring their pet birds.  We heard they gambled with the birds. If your bird could sing the longest you would win.  Some birds cost 2,000 or 3,000 dollars US.
