My mom's Lover would bring his handsome youngest son, to our house, and along with my Dad, would study with my Brother, sister and I. Wed 7 PM.
Next an Elder's wife, who was a regular pioneer and worked part-time, who had a daughter my age, came to our house, after school Wed. Ruth was the head of the house and wore the pants. Her husband was part of the 3 men who sat on all judicial committees in our congo and would tell Ruth everything, which in turn Ruth would tell the sister's. Ruth was very pious but at the age of 15 gave birth to her only child, and beat on her daughter all the time, never letting her forget what "trouble" her only daughter caused her.
At age 11, a new sister came to our congo and to help her with her reg pio hours, the Study was handed over to her for a short time. Emily was the cheerful sister who 15 years later, when she died, her husband married her much younger Caregiver.
From 12 - 13, my mom would drop me off at Rosemary's house. She Studied with me, one of her daughters my age and Ruth's only daughter. We studied in the orangie -pink Paradise book.
In the early Spring of 1963, I talked Ruth's daughter, Emily's daughter, Rosemary's 2 older daughter's, and my sister, into all of us getting baptized together. Which we did.
