The Holidays

Our Zone Conference was inspirational and Zone Christmas dinner delicious. We always look forward to President and Sister Quinn's visits.Thanks for all your work, Sister Marriott.

Christmas Day:
Christmas morning the Elders and Sisters got together at our flat. We exchanged gifts and the Elders opened their packages from home. We had a great time and lots of laughs. Our neighbors, Al and Jan came over for a visit and brought us coaters from Sydney.

Then we went to the McCreary’s for our Christmas Day Water Fight. I saw that they had filled large regular balloons and got hit with one. I knew right then the fight wasn’t for me. The rest of them all survived and Sister Wood, Alison, baby, and I enjoyed the entertainment.

The New Zealanders in our Branch had a large Christmas Party at the Church. All the missionaries were invited. We all had lots of good food, good company, and good memories.

We are very blessed. We also got to share our family's Christmas through phone calls and blogs.
