On Friday, October 5 (Almost caught up) was the Tarawa East Stake Song Festival.Each ward sang a hymn and a fun song.Moroni Ward sang “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and a rendition of
Country Roads, Take Me Home”, except that Elder and Sister Bush changed the
words to “Ocean Waves, Take Me Home,” and referred to blue lagoons and all of
the outer islands.They took first place in the hymn and the
Temwaiku Ward took first in the fun song.It was a great evening. Rich ended up being one of the judges and seem to have a really good time.I love watching these people have fun.Their lives are so simple they find pure enjoyment out of such simple things.
