1. First Christmas party in the Philippines. (there are more to come)
2. A SNOW BALL fight in the office and parking lot.
3. A District meeting in Ocampo.
4. A broken down oven and new range.
But first, a message from the Book of Mormon.
|We received our Christmas package from Jennifer. All our|
presents are under the tree and our new stockings are hung
from the drapes with care or they will fall down.
One of the scriptures which jumped out at me recently is in 3 Nephi 11:29. The Savior had just appeared to the Nephites who were in the area of Bountiful near the temple. He taught them many things but one of the points he brought up is in verse 29. He said, "For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another."
|It is the middle of December and this is new rice planted|
just last week. This is the field we monitor. The cycle starts all over again.
We think it is just so beautiful.
FIRST CHRISTMAS PARTY:
|Sister Reeder, Hoopes' and Watson's talent was singing a|
different version of Away in a Manger.
SNOWBALLS IN THE PHILIPPINES??
|Notice the snow on the driveway.|
|Some of those involved in the SNOWBALL fight.|
DISTRICT MEETING IN OCAMPO:
|All the Elders waiting for Sister Hoopes to pass out the brownies.|
|Both American Elders. Elder Davis (left) from New Mexico and Elder|
Sessions from Mountain Home, Idaho.
|Pres and Sister Reeder came over Friday morning and we went|
shopping for a new stove. This one is pretty basic but it works
all right. At least the first fresh pineapple cake turned
out just fine. (the brownies for Thursday were cooked
