I love going into Primary. That's where the fun happens. The first time I went into Uh Branch Primary, they didn't have a chalk board, manuals or anything to write with or on. Sister Furstenau brought them a CD of Primary songs and that was the start of improving their Primary.

Actually this little piggy weighs about 185-200 pounds and he isn't going to market. He is on his way to a funeral. He also might appear to be dead but he isn't--yet. When he gets to the site of the funeral he will receive a sharp knife to the heart get his throat cut in a most humane manner. He will then become a the main course for dinner. It is tradition on Pohnpei to roast a pig underground for the funeral dinner.
Entire villages turn out for the funeral and the celebration can last for up to ten days.
