Back to the Congo we go!

Here we are again, heading back to Africa.  Since we were headed back to the Congo we decided to just continue our Congo Blog.
Who would have thought we would return to Africa after all grandma Mildred told us we needed to stay home tell she was safely dead.  Well she is very healthy and may out live all of us.
April 8th we recieved a call from Elder Brent Nielson's office.  When wewent to visit him he asked us if we would return to Africa to the Lubumbashi DR Congo mission to support the new mission president Pres. Larry Shumard.  Pres. Shumard had been called to serve but did not know french.  He was on a fast tract to learn french but couold benefit from our cultural experiences in Africa and from Farrell's ability with the french language.
Everything fell into place very quicky and we submitted our papers within two weeks.  We entered the MTC June 6.  Our MTC District was awesome and we learned so much even though it was our third time around.

Elder and Sister Card, The Smiths, __________________, and us.  Cards were going to Hawaii Polynesian Cultural Center and BYU Hawaii, Smiths were going to Redlands, California and we were going to Africa.  Go figure.
After our MTC Week  we headed home to wait for our Visas to come through.  And so we waited and waited . . .
