December 8, 2014
Monday we had all the local missionaries come to the office for Pizza and then they helped us put together the last 90 gift packets. These are going to be given out to all the missionaries for Christmas. They are sure a wonderful group of missionaries Starting from the left, Sisters Smedley, Holm, Skidmore, Craig, Frame, Elders Lund, Harper, Vaughn, Harrington, Erekson, Hanning and Pace. Sitting are Sisters Danner and Tyler. I took the picture!
I heard Elder Plyler bare strong testimony of the Atonement as it related to his forgiving his alcoholic mother and it was really special. Missionary work is so wonderful!
We had dinner last night at the Lacey's home in Derry NH. They are such special people. They are so generous as they are always having missionaries over for dinner. We are with Elder and Sister Holm and Elders Christensen and Perry. The food was excellent as always.
This week will be the week of preparation for transfers next week. We have a lot of work to do getting ready to send 29 missionaries home and only receiving 7. 18 of those going home are sisters. We are closing 10 areas which is a ton of work. But it is all good and we will get the job done.
We only have this and next week here and it is bitter sweet!
