"We have been waiting a long ;ime to greet you from this place where we believe God has called us. Our first impressions were quite varied, and also ,a real ;hallenge. The country truly is jeautiful with its masses of-every shade of green imaginable and many flowers that grow unattended on every mountain side, one cannot go many miles without seeing some sort of a banana plantation. You can,buy a whole stem for 12c. Every time I eat one of them I think of the 15c each we used to pay for them in the States. We have fresh pineapple also, which we thoroughly enjoy, and often are able to get oranges and grapefruit, if we get to the market early. This is a sight I think you would enjoy. Natives from all around come and display their wares, everything from roasted rats on a stick to avocadoes, and of course with it goes the usual smells. "The settlement itself is nested in the foothills of Mblngo Hill. We look out of our dining room window and must look up immediately for the mountain is at our back door step. The flowers bloom all the time, and it seems that even a minimum of care makes them really flourish. I have started a vegetable garden tors at the Mrs Ora Forgerson home in Bode in honor of the birthday of Mrs Torgerson. Mrs 'Dwight Newton of Fort Dodge spent from Sunday until Wednesday with her daughter, Mrs Alvin Berte and family. Mrs William Murray fell on the ice whle at the home of her son Laurence Murray in Belmond and 'injured her back.

BEES At Harcour't, Kenneth Nelson operates an apiary, with an estimated 15 million bees working for him each summer. He'll soon leave for southern states to pick up a new supply of bees. Generally he will 'bring back 350 boxes, each containing 3 pounds of bees, or about 5 million bees. for that is the only way we can get fresh vegetables like- we are used to in the States. We have found in even the short time we have been here that somehow or other the tropics seem to take 1 more pep out of a person than did the more temperate climate of home. "We do have plenty of milk and cream and beef ond are for-* tunate in that respect. Eugene is now going every day to the hospital in spite of the leg cast and crutches and I try to devote every morning to occupation theraphy. ". "Things take much longer out here, and to the Africans, time means absolutely nothing. One morning a week I take the full morning for a women's meeting, for the well women, which is supposed to start at 9 a.m. but as I said time means nothing, so ft is not strange to see them strolling in at 11 a.m. or so. Then I have another meeting one afternoon a week with the sick or leper women. "To say that we do not miss you folks at home, would not be true. For we do very much; perhaps it is because we really realize now how sweet is the fellowship of others, in the household of faith. "I have written to some telli ing how very, very much-we do appreciate hearing from home. Mail is slow out here as we are. so far inland that we only get mail once a week and any mail is welcome. With Christian Love The Stockdales Eugene, Vi, Dave and Diane Dr. Stockdale arrived at Whittemore with his family from Des Moines in the early part of July in 1956, to fill the vanacy left by Dr. Hugh Geiger until Dr. James Devine was discharged from the service, which was the latter part of September.
