The hairstyles here are amazing and fun. It looks like it would take hours to do them, but they do them very quickly. Here are a few "do's" from around Christmas time.

I have come to realize that missionary planner covers are a work of art and I am impressed with these young missionaries creativity. They use old Liahonas to find pictures and messages. Here are just a few I took pictures of recently. I think you will be able to pick out Elder Jeppson's covers. He completed his mission recently and returned home.
Sister Gray is multi-talented and has offered to teach me some of her skills. When we both realized that 6 months of my mission is already gone we decided we needed to get going. Our first project was to learn how to make flowers out of the natural vegetation here. We used dried banana leaves, pods and another leaf that I can't remember the name of to make these dried flowers. We dipped the dried leaves in water and then cut them into petal shapes. We used wire and floral tape to assemble them after we had cut a lot of petals. We invited the branch sisters to join us, but sadly no one came. Sister Tilby and Sister Lapides show off their flowers.
This one is a banana leaf.
Actually these are oranges, but it becomes complicated when you want to teach a child the color orange and these are green. :)
