EATING SHARMAS

FAMOUS MARIUPOL SHARMA STAND
At the Sharma Stand with Olga, Employee of the stand, Elders Kinghorn, Woodhead, Hammond, and Goodfellow

This gentleman insisted I come into the stand to take a picture

Sharma's are famous among the missionaries, especially the Sharmas in Mariupol. So when we told the Elders we were coming to Mariupol they insisted we visit the Sharma stand for our first Sharma. Even our driver Vladimir hasn't had a Sharma before. It is meat, cheese, sourcream, special sauce, and your choice of tomatoes, mushrooms, and peppers all in a huge wrap and grilled. It was the first time we had eaten anything from a stand on the street. (the missionaries do it all the time).

I must say..............................

I liked it!!!!!!
It was very good!!!!
and......................
I feel fine today.

Yesterday we went to Mariupol to close one of our projects at a School for the Blind.


We also did cleaning inspections at the 3 missionary apartments.


If you moms are wondering how your sons and daughters are doing with keeping their apartments clean lets just say................

"the Sisters are winning".

It seems the Elders do a good job picking up their apartments but..........

I am not sure if they know the meaning of SCRUB

as in sinks, toilets, and bathtubs...................

we'll have to work on this.........

It was a great day. We got to spend time with some of the missionaries who we don't get to see very often, eat a great lunch and....................
close another project....

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sharmas ARE yummy! Except here in Switzerland they are
kabobs, pronounced kay-bobs, accent on the first syllable. The missionaries love them here too.

Our son said that was the first uniquely Ukrainian food that he'd tried - on his first day out. He's not a veggie lover, so I laughed when he said that it was full of crunchy cabbage! LOL! Was that a roast that was hanging up in the background? Glad to hear you didn't feel any ill effects afterward ;D
