Well, if they won't send you to Hawaii to be a missionary, you just have to bring the islands to you. Our district wide activity this month was a Hawaii night. Fortunately for us, the President transfered in Sister Jordan a week ago. She is from Tahiti and was delighted to share her skill. She absolutely made the evening. As always, I am running around and not taking pictures. But we first had Hawaiian haystacks for dinner, which was a great success. (Everyone wants the recipe but I have no idea how to tell them to make the chicken gravy as they make nothing similar. ) We also made leis. No one has one on here. They were actually crepe paper boondoggle.
Sister Jordan first tried to get the women to learn to dance.
The most fun was when she worked with the guys.
Then she gracefully showed us how it was supposed to look.
The Elders were actually the best at the limbo.

And then we ended the evening untying human knots.
We also did coconut bowling. Coconut balls and water bottle pins. That was fun too.
It was a successful night. The kids had a lot of fun. We had a lot of investigators there. Sister Wolfe didn't remember that this was a YSA activity so she invited a couple of families as well. But everyone seemed to have a good time.
