I just love these gorgeous trees that line the side of the Church's Tabernacle; amazing burst of color on these blooms!

I took my first "official" HULA Lesson last night (the lesson on the elevator does not count!) and have to confess I got the Giggles when we got to the hand motions about the Rainbow, the Mountain and the Sea . . . the little gal next to me also started to laugh. I just want you all to know it's NOT Easy to do, but I am practicing for my upcoming premier performance - coming soon to a theater near you.

I need to explain this! Today at Church a sweet older Sister, Sister Ella Lam, gave me a little Handmade Box that she made from a Thank You card that I gave her a couple weeks ago. I love "thankyou notes" and wrote her a card when she gave me a beautiful Hawaiian Lei after we spoke in Sacrament Meeting. So with my Thank You note to her, she made me a darling little box and inside the box were two dollar bills folded into a shirt for Elder Freeman, and a frog for me that if you tap the back of it this frog can jump! So thoughtful!!! The members of the Makiki Ward are so loving and kind!

There is a story here . . . about a week ago President Peterson called Lee on the phone and the call identified the caller as PRESIDENT. Lee saw who was calling and answered the phone: "President Freeman" instead of Elder Freeman! It was funny, but now Lee on rare occasion parks our car in the President's stall when we know he's not coming into the office. So I tease him about taking over the President's office next! NOT!!!
So; it's Saturday and that's our P-Day and just as we were getting ready to get onto the freeway to drive over to Lanikai when we get a desperate phone call from Elders Eteaki and Ieolu - they locked their keys in their apartment and could not retrieve them so . . . to the rescue we go! It's always nice to save the day~
Saturday is our P-Day so we found ourselves at this beach over at Lanikai. We only could stay an hour and a half because the Mission President asked that we run out to the airport to pick up a new couple arriving this afternoon. But Lee managed to get some snorkeling in and swam with a couple of turtles!
Is there a DOCTOR in the house? Aaaaaa . . . that would be you Sister Freeman (you have got to be kidding ME!) Yesterday at the office was non-stop Medical problems with the missionaries! I really spend the whole day taking calls from missionaries, calling Salt Lake Missionary Medical Emergency Line (since they were gone for the day), calling our Medical Area Advisor in California Dr. Layton & calling Dr. Sharon Lawler (member of the Church) here in Honolulu: Here is the breakdown:
1. Elder with Blood in Stool for 5 months (sorry folks - remember, I'm a doctor
now!) is just now calling the Mission Office about it!
2. Elder with Ringworm
3. Elder with Eyeball that really was hurting - pretty good infection.
4. Sister with swollen Tonsils
5. Elder with Ear Ache (had perorated ear drum)
6. Elder needing change to his medications (kind of a serious situation which required calling his parents twice)
It was unbelievable, but the bottom line: we survived! Elder #1 had to have a CT Scan at Queens hospital and he will get the results of the Scan next week.
I now pray for GOOD HEALTH for all these great Missionaries! WHEW!
