November Happenings

November was a busy month with lots of varied experiences.  Here is just a sampling of our life and travels here in Nigeria.

Traveling around Lagos is always an adventure.  Driving home from a regular visit to a chapel away from the mission home brought us yet another adventure in water navigation.  Just remember that all that water hides the potholes and ruts so driving becomes even more of a challenge!
Just lift your feet and keep on living!
Businesses on the edge!
The waves from passing cars do the most damage.

Another trip to Calabar was in cards this month.  We do enjoy this cleaner, quieter and greener area of Nigeria. We visited the Marina.....but are glad that our lakes and rivers look a little cleaner than this.

This brought a little thought of home to Mark.  We do miss the lake, our boat and summer in the Okanagan.

Just a leisurely walk at the marina with our host and driver, Bassey.

Boating in Calabar!

Calabar Art in the Park. 

We seemed to have taken pictures in many places with lots of children this month.  Here is a sampling!

It's amazing how they multiply when a camera is seen!
Cheesy grins on our adopted "grandsons"!
Isn't she a doll?

Just hanging out!

Glazed eyes--almost asleep!

Cute! Cute! Cute!

We also celebrated our friend, Katie's birthday!

And had a wonderful visit with our Area President, Elder Dickson, and his wife, as well as the Primary General President, Sister Rosemary Wixom and Sister Sylvia Allred, a counselor in the General Relief Society Presidency.  A great weekend!

Elder and Sister Dickson in the middle, Sister Wixom in peach at the back and Sister Allred in brown in the front.  Great leaders with inspiring messages!

Sisters!  Sisters!

A great month!  We also had a wonderful visit to Accra, Ghana--but that will be a separate post!
