Our young single adults spent their family home evening visiting elderly single sisters in the branches taking fruit baskets and caroling to them. One of the best family home evenings they have had.
I was in downtown Gulu recently and was handed a flyer. (I finally asked…Gulu population is 156,000). The flyer is advertising the services of a Dr whose name will remain anonymous. I’m quoting from the flyer a list of services rendered:
Commercial/Business Troubles…Property cleaning and protection, Get promoted at work, Get new job/restore old job, Stolen/Missing Property (72 hours)
Social and Love Troubles…Bring back lost lovers (24-48 hours), Bad luck-men and women, Get your ex-lover back.
Physical Problems – Sexual weakness (men and women), Womb troubles, All stomach problems.
Genital herpes, STD’s, Body blood cleansing, All skin problems, Epilepsy, Low sperm count, Insanity, Hips and breasts firming and enlarging.
Spiritual Problems… Victims of witchcraft, Removing bad spells from your body/property.
Libido Enhancer (Men and Women)
Now, this guy is good! I don’t care what you say. I don’t know of a doctor in Dallas that can do all this. I’ve got his telephone contact information if any of my friends are interested in reaching him…for ANY reason. I will hold this completely confidential. What happens in Gulu stays in Gulu!

FAMILY HOME EVENING WITH YOUNG SINGLE ADULTS (AGE 18-30)
Hands behind back...wiggling the head just enough to have a cookie drop down into one's mouth. A couple of the guys succeeded at it.
We spent a day or so in Kampala...you saw the dance pictures last week. More of those scenes here and Sipi Falls again...some new pics.
playing pipe horn while dancing.
Our dinner at Ndere...grilled pork and chicken.
The entrance way to Crow's Nest...lobby
View of one of the falls from our cabin's front porch.
Closer view of same water fall. 100 meters....the largest in Africa.
A berry from a plant that is used for glue.
Here is the glue between Pam's fingers.
We hiked behind the fall. So loud. So beautiful.
One of my favorite shots...water crashing down on some large boulders.
Had to cross this foot bridge on the hike to behind the falls. 5 people allowed at a time.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland taught that Jesus Christ’s mortal wounds are tokens of His sacrifice:
“However dim our days may seem, they have been a lot darker for the Savior of the world. As a reminder of those days, Jesus has chosen, even in a resurrected, otherwise perfected body, to retain for the benefit of His disciples the wounds in His hands and in His feet and in His side—signs, if you will, that painful things happen even to the pure and the perfect; signs, if you will, that pain in this world is not evidence that God doesn’t love you; signs, if you will, that problems pass and happiness can be ours. Remind others that it is the wounded Christ who is the Captain of our souls, He who yet bears the scars of our forgiveness, the lesions of His love and humility, the torn flesh of obedience and sacrifice.
Elder Francisco J. Viñas of the Seventy described some of the characteristics of someone meek and lowly in heart: “The person who obtains meekness and lowliness of heart and who enjoys the company of the Holy Ghost will have no desire to offend or hurt others, nor will he feel affected by any offenses received from others. He will treat his spouse and children with love and respect and will have good relationships with everyone he associates with. In occupying positions of leadership in the Church, he will apply the same principles as he does in the home, showing that there is no difference between the person he is when within the walls of his own home and the person he is in his relationship with the members of the Church” (in Conference Report, Apr. 2004, 40; or
Ensign, May 2004, 39–40).
