This morning we slept in and didn’t take an early Saturday walk for the first time in Months. However Hna. Johnson is feeling much better after fighting a bad cold with an even worse cough for the past two and a half weeks. For the first time in 3 weeks she’s felt like taking a walk but this time sleep and rest were more important. Next week we’ll resume our walks.

We had a big day ahead of us so we did get an early start at our P-day chores. Shopping was our first priority and we tried a new store we heard about. Its name is “Jumbo” and as the name indicates it was huge. It has many things we liked; tons of parking, close to our apartment, wide isles, great prices, tons of selections, etc. It is now Hna. Johnson’s favorite store.

While at Jumbo Hna. Johnson discovered what she’s been looking for in the DR for months. She finally found a pie plate, a real Pyrex pie dish. Yah, she’s very happy. Her first pie will be for Elder Jimenez out in Duverge. She promised him one months ago before she knew it would be so hard to find a pie plate. Finding this pie plate is another example of how little insignificant things can make a missionary in the field very happy.

This evening while we were in Azua we talked on the webcam with Nathan, Valerie & family for an hour. They brought us up to date on all the events back home; business, family, sports, politics, etc. it was a great webcam call. We really like using it to talk to our kids and grandkids.
