More Pictures Are Coming


We talked to Alex on Christmas day. He was in excellent spirits and very much enjoying his mission! His new area is not as populated as his first area, so they aren't able to do as much "street contacting" as they had done before. Nevertheless, the new area brings with it new challenges for Alex and his companion, Elder Doxey.

Alex did mention that he has a good set of pictures coming, so I will put those here on the website as soon as I get them.

For those interested in using Google Earth to look at satellite pictures of Alex's apartment and some of the places he has been, here is a list of coordinates that can be input directly into Google Earth as shown and they will take you to that location on the planet. For example if you want to look at the beach that Alex visited on Christmas Day, you would enter the following cooridnates in the Google Earth "Search/Fly To" field exactly as they are typed here without the leading and closing quotes: "34 59.672 N 138 31.362 E" Interpreted, the coordinates stand for 34 degrees 59.672 minutes North and 138 degrees 31.362 minutes East. If you have questions about using Google Earth, post your questions here as comments and I will answer them.
