Chocolate Ice Cream from Oregon - Tomatoes - Senior Couples - Conference

Ice Cream in Guam?

Yes ,we are enjoying Tillamook Mudslide Ice Cream from Oregon with Elder and Sister Proffit who just arrived to Guam. They are on there way to Palau as the new CES couple. We enjoyed getting to know them.

Elder Proffit reminds me of my dad a bit, in that he traveled the world on business.

Elder and Sister Carter

The Proffits' are taking the place of the amazing Elder and Sister Carter.

The week before, President and Sister Zarbock hosted a farewell pot-luck dinner at the mission home to say goodbye to them. We will miss the Carters and their wonderful, loving spirits and great sense of humor.

We have been growing yummy fresh tomatoes just outside our apartment door. Just starting to get ripe. Can't wait to try one.

For FHE Monday night, all of the couples, including the Proffits, went to a little Vietnamese restaurant called, Pho Cafe in Mangilao city. Their menu claims, "The Best Fried Lumpia on the Island". This is definitely some good food.

Between conference sessions on Sunday, the Barrigada ward hosted a pot-luck dinner for everyone attending.

I mentioned to Elder Hunter, who was near the front of the line, that he should try some of my Thai Coconut Ginger Chicken Curry. He said he would later when he got in line for his own plate. He was getting a plate of food for a Chuukese lady who did not want to get in line.

We loved conference. My favorite talk is definitely President Uchtdorf's Priesthood session talk entitled, "Lord, Is It I". Click on the link to see/hear it.

Sister Martin's favorite talk is, Ponder The Path Of Thy Feet by President Thomas S. Monson.
