December 1, 2013
We had a great Thanksgiving week. We thought it was going to be major tough not having it with our family and it was. But it sure made it a lot easier having Thanksgiving at the Mission Home with President and Sister Stoker. They also invited Elder Resendez(Gilbert AZ and Elder Preslar (Sugar City, ID). Elder and Sister Pettingill (Layton UT).
We had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. Everyone pitched in to make dinner not to much work for anyone. But as always the most work is always on the host and Sister Stoker is always a wonderful host.
We have transfers next and with a short week this week, we had lots of work to do. The number of missionaries coming in is getting less and less. This next week we have only 6 coming in and we have 7 going home. We had 4 visa waiters get their visa's so I know we will have to close an area and close an apartment. This will be different as we have been adding to many with the surge.
The picture below shows everyone helping to put Christmas gifts together for all the missionaries. President and Sister Stoker have interviews the two weeks after transfers and they wanted to give each of the missionaries a gift. What a great idea.
