We have learned so many things from the members here. Patience being the top of the list. They do things at their own timing and leisure with no hurrys or worrys. They do not stress over little or big things, and everything will usually work out in the end. You just need to be adaptable to this slower pace of living.
Beautiful views from behind our house.
We both agree that we will definitely not miss the humidity and being wet much of the time. Elder Wright will not miss having to carry a sweat wrag with him everywhere, wearing shirts with wet collars, bug bites, heat rashes, and always having sand in his shoes. Sister Wright will not miss cleaning mold and algae from windows, mini blinds, and bathroom tile. Nor will she miss rust on fans and appliances, or rats crossing the roadways.
|Our final sunrise|
We will miss the beautiful sunrises we experience each and every day, living on beach front property with an awesome ocean view, tropical greenery along the roadways, and lush rainforests. Mostly we will miss the association with the people we have grown to know and love who are some of Heavenly Father's choice children. We will also miss the tremendous young Elders who serve here as missionaries teaching and preaching the gospel.

We were honored with a going away party by the district. It was an extraordinary evening with delicious local food including fish, bbq ribs and chicken, taro, bananas, rice and banana pie. Of course there was singing and dancing and some words of farewell by us. Our lives will never be the same. Being together 24/7 has been a rewarding time for us. This truly has been a Micronesian Adventure.
