Two or three times a week we like to go for a walk around our neighborhood in the morning. So while I walk Elder Hind runs around with a garbage sack picking up litter. People keep their personal spaces very neat and tidy but the public spaces are sometimes pretty trashy. This is made worse by the technical college just up the street from us. We have a lot of young people who walk through our neighborhood to and from school. As a result there is plenty of junk for Elder Hind to pick up during our walks.
|This is the back side of the college that is in our neighborhood. They are |
building some more classrooms back here
Sometimes people think he is picking up recyclables. Many people collect things that can be recycled in order to make a little money. People talk to him and ask him what he is doing. He likes to visit with people. Eventually he will probably get some contacts for the missionaries.
|I have asked him to please use gloves but he won't|
|You can see by this tree that fall is coming here. The days are still warm but the nights are getting cool.|
|This is the only house in our neighborhood that does not have a fence around the front yard.|
|We live in a nice area but everyone has walls and fences around their front yards.|
|Walls and fences make it hard for missionaries to tract|
|This is a common tree in this area but I don't like them very much.|
They aren't very attractive and they always seem to have a lot of dead limbs
|This is one of my favorite trees here.|
|It is a kind of pine tree with long, soft needles|
|This is the aloe plant in my front yard. As you can see we don't have a wall, just a chain link fence.|
