Christmas Day 2016

We had helped with a special presentation for Sacrament Meeting on Christmas Day.  It was a narration from Luke with many Christmas Hymns.  Some of the songs were done by an instant choir, a solo by a Sister Eunice, a solo "O Holy Night", by Elder Davis, and "What Child is This?" by the Elders.  President Tee made come closing remarks.  The spirit was felt very strong and we were so happy that so many people were in church. 
Many people came who cannot usually come to church because of work. 
 What a blessing it is to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We found out that the sister in the middle is a member from the Philippines. 
She asked me if I recognized her, I said "no, should I?" 
She cleans our apartment.  Wow!  what a small world.

She came with her friend who is investigating and is preparing for baptism.

After church we had the Elders over for Christmas Dinner.
 It was not a traditional Christmas feast, but they enjoyed the lasagna anyway.  
 We gave them the stockings that I had filled for them. 
Wee Loon, who was baptized a couple of months ago, was ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood today by Elder Lamb.  We invited him to join us for dinner as well. 
It was good for him to be with the Elders.  He probably didn't enjoy the food very much but hopefully the company made up for it.

Brother Ben is our Branch Mission Leader.  He is always welcome in our home.  We love him.
