Teaching the Spragg family

Since they joined the Church over a month ago, we have been trying to set up more teaching appointments with the Spragg family. They live an hour away and they both work a swing shift so it's been hard. We were finally able to make it to their home Sunday afternoon. They live in what would definitely be considered substandard conditions in our country, something like a shed with an old travel trailer hooked on for the girls room. They have no indoor plumbing and only a hot plate to cook on, but they have the sweetest spirit there. Elder O'Neal gave the lesson on the Being of God the Father. He also managed to figure out how to have some small videos though they have no wifi. It was a special experience. Because they live on the western side of the Coromandel Peninsula, we also managed to get a picture of the sun setting. Since we live next to a large hill to the west, we don't really see the sun setting, just rising in the east, but here's what it looked like:

 Today we did a bit of sightseeing along the northern side of the coast 
and then came home to deliver meals for the soup kitchen and then prepare for the younger missionaries to spend the night with us. When they come, I like to be sure they have plenty to eat so here's everything I could find (including the chayote) thrown into one pot

I was afraid that I might have made too much but no worries. It was gone by the end of dinner time. And for dessert we had rhubarb/apple crisp. How I love all the fresh produce we get from the Collins' place!          

Kia Ora, Elder and Sister O'Neal
