As the Holidays approach, we are thinking more about each of you and the fond memories we have made over the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday. Last year we were so new to this mission life that we were sort of like “deer in the headlights”. We were alone on Thanksgiving and had the littlest turkey you ever saw. This year we have had several invitations to dinner and wish we could accept all three. The Sisters are excited to come over to help with cheese cake and chip dip and anything else they can do. It seems that folks are so busy with their holiday preparations and family gatherings, that they don’t open their doors to the missionaries. I have to admit that when I was home, I was the same way. I hope I will be changed when I get home.

We were able to go the Birmingham Temple yesterday with our dear friend Kay for her First Temple Blessings. It was beautiful day weather wise and a beautiful day spiritually. This has been her goal and our goal almost since we arrived and it was a great blessing for her and for us. Those special feelings just can’t be expressed in words, just know that it was one of the greatest blessing of our mission.
