Christmas in Angola

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. A missionary Christmas is a lot different in that you spend very little time in your own home. The members have fed us every night this week, given us yummy goodies, and included us in their celebrations. The Elders have warmed our hearts with their darling personalities. Yes, we really miss our family back home, but this is the next best thing!
First things first - Can't wait to get to those presents! They're not ALL for us. The Elders brought theirs over so we could open them together. 
 After presents, we enjoyed some morning fun with the fabulous Kendallville District - Elder Phillips, Sister Rolfe, Sister Fox, Elder Allred, Elder Chambers, and Elder McFarland.
We couldn't wait to get our family pictures up. Thanks, dear children. We love them. We now feel even more at home here in Angola! (It looks like Elder Mac has had a long day!)


  1. Merry Christmas to all and to all a happy New Year's!

  2. Wow, not sure how I missed this post the first time, But I love the Christmas cheer! And that tree almost looks big with you kneeling next to it. ;) Lincoln and I are just going back and looking at pictures of Grandma and Grandpa Mac!
