It is amazing the cravings that we sometimes get. I saw some cottage cheese in the grocery store. In Macau it seldom happens. The price was not marked. Many things western things are a little more here in Macau. I said it is probably about 30 MOP ($3.00-4.25 US for a quart). I thought we deserve a special treat, I am going to buy it!! I got the rest of the items on the list and went to check out. It was 91 MOP or about $11.50 US. I debated putting it back and then said "what the heck"? We have been using it like caviar.

Each week we attend and many times teach institute at the international branch of the church on Thursday night. It is a great group of people to have an in-depth gospel discussion. Taking a picture is a new way of taking role....but what if you loose the picture or get the wrong one?

We have a member from Las Vegas, Steve Anderson, who comes to Macau almost very month for a few days on business. We asked him to help us and he brought us some refried beans (4 big cans), salsa (large bottle) and (100) tortillas. We had 12 missionaries over for dinner last week. They were excited about the Mexican Feast. We added hamburger, onions, tomatoes, avocados, lime and real cheese. It was amazing!! Some of the missionaries thought they had died and gone to heaven.

During the past month we went to the temple with 35 members of our international branch (mostly Filipinos). We only have 80-90 come to church. It is a long day journey and costs about $50 US. This is significant when many of these people only make $400 US a month. It was like being in heaven to see these beautiful people in the temple all dressed in white. It was one of the great days in our life.
