The Ponton Plage........again!
Yesterday, the missionaries decided to go to the Beach after they had "Prepared" what they needed to do for their Preparation Day. They met at our home at 2:30, packed up the car, secured the frisbee, football, chocolate cake and lemon bars and we headed out. It was an overcast day, but the Elders didn't mind and we made it in record time. Because we have 10 Elders now, 6 have to ride in the back. We are so grateful for the "camping Elders" who hop right in.

When we arrived the people were waiting for us and very glad we came. We only have to buy a drink and they let us use the volleyball court, fooseball, tables & chairs.

The Elders divided up in teams to begin the day. Elder Naughton signaled he was ready to start!

After they had been playing for about 15 minutes, a man came over and asked if the Elders would come and push his car out of the sand. So they all headed out to help.
After about 30 minutes, they returned and decided to go down to the Beach!

These are the Elders of Pointe Noire. We had such a great time filled with ...
"A little bit of everything".
We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father for His "Call to Serve". We are learning each day just how much He loves us and his children throughout the world! We know that everything that he has placed on this earth is to help us someday return home to Him....He is so gracious with His blessings, now it is up to us to help the people see them too!
Missionary Life is wonderful!
Until next week.........................................
