#1 Pic. We had some fun visitors last week!  They were Marvin Gubler and his wife DeAnn.  They came to pick up their son John Gubler at the conclusion of his mission.  Marvin grew up in Santa Clara and we figured out that he and I are ½ second cousins or something like that.  He is the son of Emil and Nellie Gubler from Santa Clara.  They came to Sunday dinner and we had a fun visit and we were sad to see Elder Gubler leave us as he was a very good missionary.

 

#2.  Elder Knight celebrated his Birthday last week.  We made him a carrot cake and he was pretty excited to turn 21!  He also ordered tacos for his Birthday dinner at Annette’s diner but had to wait a few days to be served as we were in Novi Sad on his real B-day.

 

#3.  We went to visit one of the care facilities where we did a wheelchair distribution a month ago and were so happy to see the joy on the faces of some of the recipients.  This is why we are here, to help people who, for whatever the reason, are unable to help themselves.

 

#4.  This is what your donations are used for when you donate and mark humanitarian on your donation slips at church.

 

#5.  Another satisfied customer!

 

#6.  So happy to receive a wheelchair!

 

#7.  This is what happiness and appreciation look like.  If they could, I know they would all want to tell you Thank You personally but most have very limited speaking ability as well as limited mobility.  The wheelchair gives them mobility and freedom to move around.

 

#8.  We had Zone Conference here in Belgrade on Saturday, Oct. 24th.  This is our Mission Pres., Pres. Hill, enjoying a bowl of homemade chili.  Thanks to those of you who have sent packages with chili seasoning and taco seasoning.  Everyone enjoys it so much.

 

#9.  The Elders also were satisfied customers!  They will eat anything we will make for them!  The other day we made homemade macaroni and cheese and we didn’t like it at all so we took it to the church and put it in the refrigerator.  We called the elders and told them that there was mac and cheese in the refrig. For them.  They called us later in the day and said it was delicious!  I think their taste buds are suffering from their own cooking!!!!

 

#10.  Monday, Oct. 26 started the Belgrade Book Fair.  It is a really big deal here.  The church has a booth in the fair every year.  Ron and I drove all the posters and books and pictures to the fairgrounds where it is being held.We then helped the Elders and Branch Pres. Nikola Kovic set up the booth and it turned out quite nice.  This is a Pic. of our booth.  The Elders and the members here will man the booth all week.  They sell Book of Mormons for a very minimal cost.  If they give the books away, they will often find them in garbage cans but if they sell them, like for $1.00, only people who are interested will take them.

 

#11.  Elder Jasper and Elder Christiansen at the Book Fair.
