09-03-2013 Picture Perfect!

PS - We get transfer letters The Wheatlie's uploaded more pics today on their blog.  I"m sure they won't mind me "borrowing" these to share.  The great about Julius is that he has always been willing to lend a helping hand with a smile on his face - no matter what the task is. I miss his help around the house, nut while he's gone it has given his siblings a chance to remember how to help. 

In preparation for Zone Conference, the elders and Wheatlie's got together and helped each other with 'deep cleaning' projects at the elder's apartments, like windows and patios and porches....then we had lunch together. 

Elder Julius helping with lunch dishes at Zone Conference - no matter how simple the meal, there are always dishes to be done.  We had pulled pork sandwiches, apples, baked beans, potato salad and cookies - all of which were made ahead of time so no one would miss out on any of Zone Conference.

During a recent District Meeting, Elder Wheatley arranged for a plumber to come and fix a leaky bathroom sink pipe.  He can and it took only a few minutes, so he was paid and left.  Not long after, one of the elders kept looking through the doorway into the bathroom and finally said that he thought it was leaking kidding, soon there was a constant stream of water which had to be mopped mopped up continually until the water to the whole apartment could be stopped. While fixing one piece, apparently the plumber broke some other major parts.  It took another plumber and 2 trips to the market to get parts before it was fixed! Ironically - Elder Wheatley had remarked just a day or so before, that we had not had an emergency crisis for a few days.
