Elder Payne on Udot island

No new letters yet. Still waiting for either an e-mail or snail mail.  Last official word from Elder Payne was in June. But thankfully FaceBook friends are posting pictures.  So we know he's alive and seems to be doing well.

We did hear that Elder Payne has been assigned the duties of District Leader.  Have not heard which islands are in his district.  We also don't know if he's living on Romanum or Udot. As a District Leader he will spend time frequently visiting Elders on other islands.

Thanks to the Elisons' for posting.

Elder's new home on Udot.  The original home was destroyed by Typhoon Maysak.  One room. No electricity or running water.  They cook on a one burner butane stove or outside on open file.

The outhouse on Udot. About 25 yars from their home.  What else is there to say?

New pictures from Chuuk

No letters have arrived for some time since Elder Payne is assigned to Romanum.  However, his companion was able to send some pictures to his family.  I have grabbed a few.  Thank you Sister Dann.

There's home!
