December flew by as we busily worked on the project, taught English classes, had zone baptisms and celebrated Christmas.
The Branch put on a most inspirational program, A Tribute to Christ. Elder Shumway sang once with Elder Harding and once with Brother Taumololo. They did a great job. Several of our English students and a recent convert came.
The Branch threw quite a Christmas Party: lots of friends, fun, and food. The weather was beautiful (not too hot!)
We were invited to the Alcoota School Christmas Program/awards ceremony/barbeque. We had a great time and the kids put on quite a program.
In late November Pahou, from New Zealand was baptized. It was great to watch his transformation. Five members of the Neal family were baptized a few days later. They were excited to learn about and join the Church.
