|4th of July at Nu'umau Beach - Gotta love those|
Schaefermeyers who do everything with a flair!
The 4th of July was celebrated in high style with the Senior Missionaries at Nu'umau Beach. We closed the office at 1 pm and by 2 pm we had arrived at the beach where the Schaefermeyers and Gillettes had set up tables and chairs in the water, red,white and blue ballons added a festive touch and Rusty's handcrafted Bar-B-Q was sitting out in the water ready for hamburgers and hotdogs. 60's tunes (my favorites), were broadcast out across the water, and salads, desserts and chips were potluck. As the tide came in we just kept moving the tables, until by the time we left the water was up to the 2nd post. We had a wonderful time celebrating the greatest country on earth!

Saturday Brent and the Senior Men had a male bonding experience going scuba diving. It was pretty pricey at $350 WST. After some instruction in a pool, they were taken out in the ocean. I was disappointed that they didn't see anything cool like a shark or a whale for that price, but they still had a good time.

Tomorrow starts another transfer week, and the stress is already building. We are expecting 16 new missionaries, and will have an additional 16 missionaries come into the office as trainers; that equals 32! They start arriving tomorrow and the mission president is off island until Tuesday afternoon. The logistical planning for housing, feeding, training, transporting, by van boat and plane, makes for a interesting week.
