Christmas in the mission

Maligayang Pasko!

Just wanted you all to know that even though we missed family so much on this Christmas 2014, we were among great friends.  We did have presents under our tree!  We had a wonderful meal of ham and turkey with mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, stuffing, homemade rolls and  deviled eggs.  We were stuffed!  Then later for dessert we had pumpkin pie (Sister Rahlf didn't know where that can of pumpkin came from--definitely not available here), strawberry cake, gingerbread and hot chocolate for dessert at this lovely table.  Pictured below are President and Sister Rahlf on the loveseat, Elder and Sister Morgan, and Elder and Sister Honeycutt.  I didn't realize that I cut off Elder Honeycutt.  I thought I got everyone.  As you see, we had casual clothes day!  We exchanged small gifts.  We watched a Christmas movie and then enjoyed the fireworks set off by the adjacent mall.
We are grateful for our experiences here.  We wouldn't trade them for anything.  We wish all of you a very wonderful day with friends and family.  We love you all.
