FAREWELL FOR THE JÄKKÖ
A blog is never quite complete without a little sunset picture...this was taken about 9:00 p.m. You can see how light it is....that means our days are getting l-o-n-g-e-r!!
We had a FAREWELL dinner and desert and 'roast' for Veli ja Sisar Jäkkö. They will be leaving to go back to Lappenranta. They have been 'full-time' here in the asuntola for the past 6 months. They have been a wonderful addition to our full-time missionary couples here.
The dinner was actually quite good....can't remember the name of the restaurant though. It is close to Sello.
And after dinner it was back at the asuntola for some dessert.....a delicious cake that Ronda Groberg made.
And a little 'roasting' time for the Jäkkö's.
Veli Jäkkö and I have this thing about saluting each other. I have no idea where that came from ...... somehow it just started. He wanted a 'salute' picture
So, when we finished our little party we went past the kitchen area and the Russian's were having a party of their own......a genealogy party.....sorting their family file cards and figuring out what they needed to do at the temple tomorrow. They will head back home on Saturday and there is still a lot of work to be done. They are so faithful and diligent in their family work.
It is hard to believe that another week is almost gone!
