Our Address in Guyana

Dear family, 
We have been in Guyana for 3 days now and finally have our address. We were not sure whether we would be living in the Guyana mission office apartment but we have decided to live in the apartment where the departing couple lived because there is very little privacy in the mission office apartment and they need it for couples and missionaries being transfered from other areas.
Anyway, our address will be:
Elder Melvin E. Beutler
77 Garnett Street
Lamaha Gardens
Georgetown, Guyana

I (Carol) attended a district Relief Society meeting this afternoon with the sisters from 5 of the branches here in Georgetown. It was my impression that most of the sisters were of African descent, but they are a real mix of African, East Indian, Ameri-Indian and Portugese. While I was at the meeting, Melvin went with one of the brothers in the branch to shop for produce at the fresh produce market. He spent about 10 dollars and bought a nice pineapple (the best I have ever tasted) mangos, bananas, greens, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Groceries are almost double in price here except for the produce on the stands and they are cheaper and good quality.

To the Dickeys:
I was thinking of you today as you had your reunion. We love you and miss you. To our children, thank you for all that you are doing to keep things going while we are away.
Love from Mom and Dad (Elder and Sister Beutler)
