Not Your Typical Family Home Evening

 We went to the Wone Branch for Family Home Evening.  These people are so humble and wonderful.  They say that we have been adopted into their family and we feel that way.  We meet in what is called a nahs.  This is a thatched roof open area.  As you can see the family dog had pups and they roam freely under foot.
Two of the girls posed with their pet rooster.  They keep it tied with a string around it's leg.  He seems pretty satisfied being cradled in their arms.  Such cute kids.
Lenda learned how to weave banana leaf dinner plates.  After she finished we used them for the meal.  No leaking on the bottom.  She did a good job but isn't sure she can do it again without help.  We sang songs and several gave their testimonies.  We all shared in a great meal.  Lenda made chocolate cake and naturally that was a hit.  Sis. Furstenau made a big bowl of popcorn and the kids sang "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree" before they dove into the bowl.  We had a great time as usual.  It takes a hour to drive out to Wone which is on the opposite end of island from where we live.
