This week we had a wonderful surprise, a package from home with special birthday wishes from our children and grandchildren for their Papa. We were so happy although some of the messages brought a few tears for a minute. Our shelf is well decorated right now.
I found out that one of our friends from the JB branch has a birthday just two days before Elder Lamb, so we invited their family to dinner so we could celebrate their birthdays. The Kurup family are a very special family to us and we enjoy their company so much. We also have in our branch a sweet sister from Utah, who is teaching school here, so we invited here to the party as well.
Brother Kurup said he probably has only celebrated his birthday two or three times in his life. It was a very special evening. I am grateful for special people here who help make our life more complete since we are so far away from home.
They brought a delicious White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cake.
The evening was complete!
