Institute Classes Done for the Year

 We taught our last Institute class as missionaries this past week.  We have loved this opportunity to rub shoulders and discuss the Gospel with these young people.  We hope we have made a difference in their lives.  The way they are living their lives gives us great hope in the future and a confidence that the Kingdom of God will be in good hands wherever they settle down to call home.

We had our first wedding.  A young man stationed at Schofield Barracks from the Tri Cities Washington area (Pasco) and a young lady from here but is Samoan were married yesterday.  He will be deployed soon and works in Army Intelligence.  They have both served missions in the Philippines.

We attended the Christmas tree lighting for BYU Hawaii this last week.  There we met a delightful family from Australia (but of Polynesian descent).  We were particularly touched by this big uncle tenderly caring for his nephew while his mother and father were busy visiting.

We continue to enjoy trying new places to eat.  One of our favorite places is the food trucks in Hale'iwa.  Hale'iwa is about 10 miles away on the northwest side of the Island.  It is a pretty drive.  We like to eat at a taco truck there for taco Tuesday and at a shrimp truck whenever we have an excuse.  They make the best coconut shrimp we have tasted here.  We also try to take in a sunset while we are there because they are so pretty.
