Week 19 - June 13-17

Time is really flying, another week has gone by.  At zone meeting on Tuesday the zone leaders asked for two volunteers.  Two brave Elders volunteered.  I wonder if they were ready for a test of their faith.  One Elder was asking to sit in the chair and then the task was given to the other Elder to cut his hair.  The zone leaders had done this to each other and said you had to have a lot of faith in your companion to let them cut your hair.  They challenged each companionship to do this before the next zone meeting.  Terry and I have no problem with this activity.  I had just cut his hair and mine could be trimmed.   

Sunday for Father’s Day Terry received this beautiful shirt tooth pick holder made by wife of one of the councilors in the Bishopric.  It has a dessert inside the beautifully wrapped package. 
The Elders and Sisters from the Kumamoto and Nagamine Wards came by about 8:30 p.m. and sang “Brightly Beams our Fathers Mercy” to him.  They brought over some Japanese cookies and curry.  We were both surprised and delighted at their thoughtfulness.

I invited a friend to participate in the Nagamine Ward Relief Society activity today.  The activity  was how to make summer desserts.  Pictured below are the desserts we made.  The first dessert is cubed tomatoes with a little brown sugar sprinkled on it and then chilled.  It was not very sweet but tasted great.  Dessert two is the one with the mint on it.  It is fresh grapefruit pieces in grapefruit juice and gelatin.  The third dessert is a sweet bean paste in a seaweed base.  They were all delicious but not as sweet as American deserts. I think my children may have enjoyed  these types of desserts had I made them for them.  I like the pretty colors.
