We had to finish all missionary work by 4:00 p. m. today. We decided to take a little trip along the beach and dip our toes in the water. It was an absolutely beautiful day as you can see. This is about 5:00 p.m. We watched the sun go down and then headed over to the Karratti's for a Christmas Eve dinner Hawaiian style with their family. We had lau-lau which is pork tied in banana leaves and steamed all day, shrimp, lobster, poi (yuk), Ahi tuna (raw), lomi salmon (raw and salsa like with onions and tomatoes),long noodles. It was quite yummy and we tried everything. We especially liked the coconut ice cream for dessert. The Karratti's are so kind to us and treat us like family we really enjoy visiting with them. They will be heading to Utah tomorrow with their family for a week. Their son Enoka and his wife Denise will be sealed in the Salt Lake Temple while they are there.
