We try to not get too close to the missionaries. We are told that we are NOT to be their parents or grandparents. Sometimes this is a difficult task as we are all engaged in the same work and see each other on Sundays and at different meetings or when they come in to the office or when their flats need attention. So I guess we do see them quite a lot.
This was a special occasion as Sister Nakitende was heading home to Uganda after serving for eighteen months. Kristi had just served another nice meal, the green salad was the biggest hit. All five of these sisters were living in the same flat for a while until Sister Nakitende departed for home. They are a lot of fun to be around and are powerful teachers when about their work.
