October Pointe Noire Missionary Entertainment-Part 1

Entertainment, as we know it in the United States, is very limited in Pointe Noire. However, our elders have had a creative, rather adventurous month, that must be shared.

Elder Garner is our new zone leader. He started it out by declaring that we were going to have an egg dropping contest. Our instructions were to bring a raw egg to the church on the 1st Saturday of the month. We were given a week's notice, and we were warned to wrap the egg up in whatever we thought would protect it, if it was dropped from a high point.
The elders worked hard and taught missionary lessons until 3:00 p.m.. Then we had a special baptismal service. At 5:00, every Saturday, the Elders all teach English classes, which lead to many investigators and baptisms. Between the two, there were a few minutes for our egg drop. We had some very clever wrappings, including parachutes. Ed's parachutes didn't work... Elder Rakotosons parachute was awesome.

There were 6 winners...

And 2 losers...

But we all ended up winners because we got some great laughs out of it!


  1. Oh how fun! What a great blessing to have such darling elders serving with you.
    We love you!
    Charise and family

  2. What a fun group of elders! I am glad you have them to keep you laughing.

  3. LOL! Hilarious! Written perfectly... I was thinking as I read, I hope they included a pic of their cracked eggs! LOVE IT!
