Well, Where should I start. Not too many photos this week. I wish I had some photos of the Sunday afternoon Taksi (taxi) ride, but they would have been blurred anyway...maybe a video would have worked!
We are definitely into the rainy season. On Friday afternoon I had to go to Soepomo which is only about 1Km from the apartment. I was going to walk but it was raining, so I hailed a becak. He pedaled me to the building in about 5 minutes. I then spent about an hour with Ricko going through Preach My Gospel working on doctrine and his English - defining words and correcting pronunciation. What a really fine young man. He is going to one of the Salt Lake City, Utah missions.
Sister Greenway already noted that I baptized Lala. Her real name is Kezia Nirmala and when I baptized her the only name I used was Nirmala. "Nirmala denang kewenangah dari Yesus Kristus, atu membaptismu dalam nama Bapa, dan Putera, dan Roh Kudus. Amin."
Here are some photos:

How about just some cute kids? Moses and Enso, Lala's brothers.
|Sorry - I just had to include Luki. He is Lala's 6 yo brother. |
He attended the missionary baptism lessons with Lala - and
boy, does he know his Gospel! Those CTR 6 are pretty smart!
The photos below show our Christmas decorations at the Paragon (where our apartment is located). Remember Indonesia in 90% Muslim. You should see the Mall!
