As many friends and family already know, Landoe's are in the process of moving to UAE. I have gone ahead of Karah and the kids to try and get things set up. Not to worry though as I've established contact with the local branch and they have put me on the "dinner calendar" -just like in the mission field. The members of the branch are very warm and inviting - like Puyallup Ward. What a benefit it is to have the church everywhere. I think I've instantly made about 30 friends here.
A map of Al Ain, where I am staying is located here. The map takes about 20 seconds to load as I have put in some rich text markers, showing the location of key places, where I will be like work and church.
First things first, Here's a pic of the family at the airport, trying to keep a smile even though we know the few months will be tough.
Here's a picture below of the LDS Church in Al Ain. It's housed in a typical Villa, which is like a large Rambler in the USA, made out of cement.
I'll add more pictures soon. Internet is somewhat slow and it takes a while to upload pictures. Let me know what you think of the map!

This week's entries:
- Graham Crapper = Graham Cracker
- Yike = Like
- Hang -u -ber = hamburger
- rick rish = Licorice
- Paw corn = pop corn
Mom, can I have a Graham Crapper? This phrase takes me back to the original wordsmith, uncle Jake, who proclaimed at age 9 Mom, I just learned from Brother Terry that I want to be Piro-craptor.

Also, in addition to graduating from Primary, Alaura's worked very hard to finish her Faith in God award, which requires her to do several faith/testimony promoting things like memorizing articles of Faith and studying topics like "Standing for Truth" in the topical guide and writing and preparing her own talk. As part of Faith in God, she also worked very hard at developing her talents and serving others. There's too many things to list but we are so proud of her and I hope you have a chance to ask her sometime what she did to earn that award.

Kids had a chance to meet Cosmo while the BYU Cougars were in town. They stopped by the Museum of flight where we met Cosmo, watched BYU football reruns, and Cosmo commercials...and there was food.
