First, just a thought and prayer for all who fought, lived and died at Pearl Harbor, and all veterans. Thank you for helping us keep our freedom.
Ok going back a few weeks to Thanksgiving. We, 3 senior couples and President and Sister Craven, had thanksgiving dinner together at the mission home. Sister Slade and I rode with Elder and Sister Urban so I didn't have my camera, but it was a beautiful setting. We all brought different things for dinner. Sister Slade made her "famous" creamed corn, and I cooked the turkey. Yes you read that right. It turned out rather good even if I do say so. We had a great time visiting and sharing stories. As a matter of fact I would say a good time was had by all. I wish I had pictures, but I don't. However I do have pictures of the nativity christmas program/festival the NC South Stake held. What they do is ask anyone who wants to share, bring a nativity scene or more than one if they want and display it for a community festival. We displayed the one we bought in Branson, MO. I think it is the most adorable (yes adorable) nativity scene. If you are from the West, as some were, you'll love it. Picture below
Here are some more pictures of other nativity's.
As for the work, it is going well. I worry that because things have gone so well that we will hit a wall and stall out. I know we need to stay faithful, continue to love those we serve and all strive to become self reliant. We are going to Atlanta GA this week for training, and I think Sister Slade has some activities planned while in GA, so I will continue this then. Keep the faith,
