Senior Couples Conference - Wednesday thru Saturday

While the husbands did some IMOS training for the budget, Sister Jameson introduced us to her new hairstylist, George.  We all enjoyed a little pampering and had our hair cut.

That night, Sister Jameson served us a beautiful and tasty Valentine's dinner.  We played a "Newlywed" game.  It was a  night filled with good food and good friends.  We laughed and laughed as we learned what we didn't know about our spouses.
We visited some of the "markets" for souvenirs.  These birds were just roaming the premises.  We even saw this white "albino" peacock.  It's a first for me.  I have only seen one in "Harry Potter" and thought they didn't really exist.

There are many beautiful birds here in Africa.

On Saturday, we visited the construction site.  Elder/Sister Billings are Construction Missionaries.  He is teaching his students good construction practices for future Church buildings.  They are also making an office and storage facility for the brick making project.  It's a great program.  Some of our Seniors were given the chance to make a brick.  They learned that it wasn't as easy as it looks.

We went to lunch at the dining room in the Hotel Royal.  We were so pampered and buoyed up by the company and food.
