On Christmas Eve the big white mission van headed North loaded with presents, goodie bags for the 14 missionaries serving in Limpopo. We met there with our wonderful missionaries and senior couples and showed a movie, shared some gifts and had dinner together.
President Dunn had arranged for a very special Christmas surprise as he was able to secure a screening copy of “Meet the Mormons” for a special viewing with our missionaries. He first put on an old Christmas movie (Mr. Kruger’s Christmas) and made everyone think that was the movie we were going to watch. Then, without notice, he and the AP’s stopped the movie and said, “Wait a minute, isn’t there something newer than this to watch?” They then surprised and delighted everyone, by turning on “Meet the Mormons”. This was a very special circumstance and group to be with, to watch this amazing film just released by the church.
Below are our trusty elf Zone leaders, Elder Reed and Elder Olson.
Thanks to Sister Brammer, Winward and Harward for hosting the gathering and providing a fun meal for everyone. It was a great way to spend Christmas Eve. All the senior couples in the NorthEast had fun Christmas morning plans including a breakfast together.
