The 1st BEST day of my life was my baptism, then my endowment in the Manti Temple, then my sealing in the Idaho Falls Temple, then the birth of each of my children, then the last Saturday of my mission with this baptism.
As we had our exit interview with Pres. Wood we all agreed that this mission is the Hardest thing I have ever done that I have loved.
We leave Namibia in the wonderful hands of Elder and Sister Smith. We leave a part of our hearts there. God bless you all.

This is a spider netting used to catch animals. It is like a spoke on a wheel going around the clock. The netting looks like panty hose with sand on it in spokes going out from the center and it is all underneath the sand.
Just when we thought we had lost all hope, their Visas were approved.
They arrived March 5, 2012 and will be here for 1 YEAR.
We have been driving them around and talking and sharing for the last week.
We love YOU!

The elders left in 2 groups. Everyone went to say good bye. Elders Khanyile, Critchfield, Houston, Andriamitantsoa, Zarbock and Leach. Elders Khanilye, Zarbock and Leach left first on Feb. 5th and and then today the other three: Elders Andriamitantsoa, Houston and Critchfield.
We have been trying to find the Zoo in Windhoek. You wouldn't think it would be so difficult, would you? Well, we put our minds to it last week and were so excited. It was like a breath of fresh air. We saw lots of animals that we would see in America. It was like a petting zoo. You had to be careful because the fences were low and some of the animals were large. Take a peek. As you arrived at the zoo and paid the fees $3 American, you received a plastic container of lettuce to fee anyone or anything you wanted.
The zoo has been open for 4 years. And is run by volunteers. Because they have a small budget, people bring food from home and feed the animals .
The turtles hide under the small rock on the left and then it moves around the yard with them underneath.
We have those at the rodeo.
Parents buy parrotts for their children and when they tire of the animals, they are brought to the zoo.
