On Saturday December 20th, 2014. We had a big triple zone Christmas party for the missionaries. We ate and had a gift exchange and later acted out the nativity. We did not go to the nativity because our kid were calling us. All of the kids went to Grandma Edington's for Christmas Eve dinner and the nativity. They did the nativity before they ate so it would not be so late for use. It was wonderful to be able to participate through FaceTime and see all the grandkid playing the parts of Mary, Joseph, angles, shapers, wisemen and donkeys. It really made it special and much easier to handle the fact that we could not be there and that our christmas had not come from most of the kids. But that is another blog entry for later.
OnDecember 19th, 2014 we had a triple zone meeting consisting of the Bloemfontein, Lesotho and Bethlehem zones. As usual it was a great day to learn and grow as zones. President Zackrison taught as well as Assistants to the President Elder Farrin and Elder Manhanha. Both of these missionaries Elder Edington and I have close ties to. Elder Manhana Served in Welkom where he did a marvelous job helping us with the institute program there among many other things. We love and appreciate all he did to help there. Elder Farrin is close to our heart because he is from the Farrin Family from Pima AZ. He left with his family as a young man but returned to Pima each summer to visit grandma and grandpa. He loves the area and is planning to go back to EAC to study.
