The young single adults have very few activities, so we held an Institute activity. Over 60 were in attendance and were able to mingle with LDS young adults from other branches.
Activities included a discussion on dating (which is difficult since there is no word for dating, since it is not a part of the culture), pioneer dancing, and musical numbers from the various branches.
It was fun to get them to mingle and speak up. Neither is really encouraged by the culture they live in.
Another fun event was a party at Mechitiw Branch for Elder Fiti, who completed his mission and returned to his home on Tonoas. He was a District Leader and was loved and respected by the people of the branch in Mechitiw. He will be a real strength for the church here in Chuuk District.
Speaking of food, the Eliasons, the Reeds and the Hardys were able to prepare a Thanksgiving meal for the 26 Elders and Sisters who serve here in Chuuk. It was a fun time and the food was certainly appreciated.
For friends, family,and loved ones who support us with prayers, Facebook posts, and care packages. Kinisou!
