Update on June 14, 2009

This past week has been a busy week in the office. 17 new Mongolian missionaries came into the mission office this week and received orientation to prepare them to attend the Manila Philippines MTC. They flew to the Philippines on Friday. They will return to Mongolia on July 3rd to serve their missions here in Mongolia. A few Mongolians serve missions in Korea, Australia, Russia, or the United States, but most of them serve in Mongolia. There is a problem in their getting visas to other countries.

Saturday night we invited the Caldwells to our apartment for dinner. I bought beef for the first time in the form of ground beef and made a ground beef and vegetable casserole. Wes made a loaf of homemade bread (we have one long bread pan). For dessert we had apple crisp. Then we played All Fives Dominoes. This version of dominoes is popular with the senior couples in Ulaanbaatar.

The day before, two senior couples, the Caldwells and Dr. and Sister Anderson, were invited to visit a ger further out from the city. I think you'll be interested in reading about their experience and seeing their pictures at and and
What follows is a picture from their blog of the goat they were served for dinner. Bonnie, show this website to Greg.
