This morning in our weekly visits to our AIT students, we made particular effort to visit Sister Nuusila our Polynesian friend. We found her at home in her barracks and had a nice visit with her. Then suddenly as we visited, she remembered two other LDS soldiers whom she had met. A Brother Cheney and a Sister Cox. We had no idea that they were with us. Immediately we went to find them. Fortunately they were in her same company, so we didn't  have to go far. We found both of them and had a real nice visit with them. All three committed to coming out to church tomorrow. We always tell them that they can text or call if they can't find a battle buddy. Throughout the morning and with one visit in the afternoon to brother Edwards, we visited 10 of our student soldiers. Brother Edwards usually sleeps in on Saturdays due to late Friday classes, so we try to visit him and his buddies later in the day. We found him as we were leaving or FRG picnic just before he was to head out to some event somewhere off post. The Spirit certainly leads us to where we need to be.

This afternoon, we attended our FRG function at the children's park on post. The Barretts, Sister Tenney and Sister Wilkinson came out. We had a nice visit together while the children played and then Elder Gowans helped teach the ladies some basic car care. How to check the oil, and other fluids, then we changed a tire on one of the vehicles so they would be able to if they ever needed to.

This evening, we attended Sister Murray's and her daughter's piano recital; it was held at the Martinez Baptist Church. It was a nice function with 10 children and one adult playing for us. Afterward they fed us hamburgers and hot dogs. So it turned out very nice.
