Yes we also worked on technology during the week. During the day our small room becomes an office. At times we both work at the little table and other times Diane gets the table and I get the bed. We are actually able to get a lot done. On Tuesday afternoon since we were in Riverton for our district meeting we made contact with the ICS department of the church. It felt good to communicate with them again and take our next steps as ATSs for Brazil. Whenever we get an email from one of the STSs in Brazil it makes us want to get there quickly.
We haven't been able to get our walks in like we are used to. On Saturday we decided we should take a nice walk. We parked near Gardner Village and walked along a trail beside the Jordan River. It was good to get out again. We need to do it more often.

There is an area just east of us where we always get lost. We tend to be there at nighttime and get on the wrong road to return to our room. We decided to scout it out during the daytime. It ends up that 7200 South (our street) curves around and becomes Fort Union Blvd. That's why we could never find our street at night (also the street signs are faded out such they are hard to see even during the day and impossible at night). We bought a small speaker so our videos we use for lessons can be heard easily. We also got an adapter so we can connect our Macbook or iPad to the TV via HDMI. Modern, aren't we?
Well, we are still waiting for our visas, trying to keep busy with MLS work and technology work. Some day we will be in Brazil and this will all be a dream.
