At Dimitri and Elena's

Dema collects old coins. He's showing us a 1733 kopek.

He is not a member but his wife and two children have been for 13 years, and they constantly feed the missionaries, including us.

They purposely offered us great Russian foods to try. Besides the soup, they made cabbage filled turnovers ("pies") and they served "sala," thinly sliced pork fat, to eat with excellent rye bread.

You look great Donna. Some Russian girls that live in St. George told me that "Sala" is one of the main foods for Ukraine, also.

I saw Sarah at church today when I visited her ward. What a wonderful young mother with a strong testimony that has her priorities straight. Beautiful too. You sure raised some great kids!
