On Tuesday we had interviews with President Brower. We had a skills meeting in the morning (while other missionaries were being interviewed). Being a senior couple we were the last to be interviewed. In fact we were able to return to our apartment for lunch before the interview. Sister Stebar needed to go see a doctor about her sore hand so Sister Wheeler went with Sister Phillips to give a lesson to a lady at a Lady's shelter. Since I couldn't go in the shelter I was able to walk around for an hour while waiting for them to finish. I walked past an African drum shop and talked to Saikou, the owner. We had a good talk about African musical instruments (he had a nice balafon and kora there) and about the church. When the sisters arrived I gave him a Book of Mormon he said he would read. I didn't have a camera at the time so we returned on Friday (our P-day) to take a picture of us drumming.

On Tuesday evening we went with the Portuguese elders to visit Adriana (a member), her husband Dereck (a nonmember) and their daughter Melody. We really had a nice visit with Adriana telling about her conversion. Dereck has had the lessons, but seems more interested now that he has a daughter to care for.

The Lindsay's are finally going home. Elder Lindsay has been in the hospital for the past few weeks receiving the Canadian version of health care. Finally a doctor flew in from Salt Lake City to accompany them on the airplane back to Utah. He is now home and improving. Sister Wheeler helped mend Elder Lima's pants so hopefully they will hold up until he completes his mission. We got a call from Sister Fatheringham who was sick (something she ate) so she came to our apartment to rest where she wouldn't be out in members homes.
Friday we had another preparation day, which means "see the city". We drove downtown and parked in what we thought was a safe place (we got a parking ticket for not having a permit that was posted way down the street). We walked through Chinatown and went to the Art Museum of Ontario. We really enjoyed some of the works of Canadian artists. We stopped in a Korean restaurant for a late lunch.
