and Elder Arcayan in front of the Micronesia Guam Mission Office
Then we were notified that the Zarbock's flight back to Guam was canceled. They re-booked that one for several hours later on Tuesday night. This is a common occurrence with United in Micronesia.
Sister Martin books so many flights, it's hard for her to keep up. But, with the Lord's help, things always seem to work out.
Elder and Sister Guercio were a little busier today since Elder Tafuna hurt his ankle. Several days ago, Sister Reed also hurt her foot as seen by the pictures. Sister Martin is still limping a little after she hurt her knee over a month ago. Through all the trials, the work keeps moving forward. We all must "Stand Strong" as we face daily challenges.
After being instructed during mission leadership to limit fast food, Elder Guercio looks like he is examining Elder Naegle's wrap for nutritional value. Too much fast food is always a concern for the mission nurse as he is the first to get a call.
Elder Naegle asserts that this wrap has plenty of lettuce and is nutritious.
In the background is Elder Stanley. He is originally from Mechitiw, Chuuk and he just finished his mission in the Vanuatu Port Vila Mission. He is waiting for his flight from Guam to Kentucky that leaves next weekend. His entire family moved to Kentucky while he was on his mission.
As he waits to go home we talked about enduring to the end. He said in Vanuatu he taught people in the Bislama language. He said "Enduring to the End" translates to "Stand Strong" in Bislama.
I found a few links about Standing Strong. Here's a one minute clip of Elder Robert D. Hales Stand-strong-in-holy-places. Also Julie B. Beck gave a talk called...Stand-strong-and-immovable.
And our favorite, the Youth theme song of 2010 when Sister Martin and I were on Pioneer Trek as a Ma and Pa...Be Strong and of Good Courage. We taught this song to our group/family before going on the Trek experience.
Elder Stanley also said his first time eating at McDonalds was when he arrived in Guam.

Elder Telona likes to use his hands sometimes while talking. Very descriptive.
