|A super happy me because I got |
pretzel M&Ms for Christmas!
Christmas Eve, Sista Tagini and I went over to the mission home to help make gingerbread with Sista Granger and her two daughters. We've spent a lot of time cooking with them lately! We just enjoyed the day together sharing what we do at home for Christmas and preparing for the next day. That night, Sista Tagini and I went back home and had two sistas from our zone over to our house. We cooked an authentic Papa New Guinea Christmas dinner: stuffed chicken and spaghetti noodles in soy sauce with juice. It was actually pretty good!

December 26th is Family Day here in Vanuatu and because of all the drunk men everywhere we weren't allowed to go to our area. So, a few of us missionaries decided to jump in the mission bus and drive around the island again. This island never ceases to amaze me by how beautiful it is! Now that we've had more rain, every thing is turning green and it's just stunning! I just can't believe that I live in such a paradise!
This week we didn't get to teach heaps, but we did have the chance to teach Doris and her daughter again. They are progressing really fast because they already come to church and love to read their scriptures and pray as a family. She even said that her husband said he might be interested in taking the discussions as well- WAHOOOO!! That was our Christmas present!
Thank you to everyone who sent packages or letters for Christmas! It made my first Christmas away from home a special and memorable one. I love you all. Have a great week!
