People We Worked With In Town

The lady in the pink is Merlyn, it was her Happy Birthday so Sister Aquino and I took her a hat and a cake. Merlyn helped so much with our electric bills for the missionary apartments. At first I thought maybe she didn't like us so much because we could not understand each other over the phone and she would be impatient with me, but we turned out to be friends.
These are the guards at the bank. The man on the left saved our lives one day. We were with the new couple the Jones, helping them get their accounts set up and we left the blue binder (with all the money in it) behind. I thought we had it because we had a blue binder, but it turns out it was Sister Jones' and the money binder was left at the bank, for hours. This guard saw what had happened and when we walked up he had a big smile on his face. He had put it in his drawer for me. This is truly amazing because he is so poor and his little girl has cancer and they were just starting the treatments. So next time we went we took brownies, brownies make every thing better.

Across from the bank is the Reflexology Spa and for $8 you could sit in a recliner and get you feet soaked and worked on for 30 min. We became really good friends with these young ladies.

Doesn't Elder Kimberlin look so happy !

These are some of the bank people we got to know. Andy is the guy on the left with his hands in his pockets, he always helped us, not just with the money but with where to go eat and important info like that. We cannot say enough about how wonderful the people were to us everywhere we did our mission bussiness. We miss them.
