Don and I decided since church doesn't start until 1:00 p.m. that we would see how long it took us to walk to the archives. It took us about 40 minutes.
We still don't have a car so the McVey's take us everywhere - shopping, work and church.
We went to church today and the people are very friendly but their accents are hard to understand so we have to listen very carefully.
Afterwards there was a baptism for a young girl named Chelsea Bolton. She was very excited about being baptized. President Kerzarian and his wife were there. I talked to his wife and she does indeed know Dixie Bedingfield. When I mentioned Dixie's name she immediately said, "Yes, I know her. She use to babysit me."
Later we went to Roy and Lorraine Ditchburns for dinner. They also had Mike Higgins and his wife from Auckland and Danny Chen from Hong Kong and the McVeys for dinner also. The Ditchburns had so much food it was immediately worth 2 pounds. Mike and Danny are here to evaluate us for the week. They just finished setting up a Digilab in Christchurch and wanted to see our system.
