This has been a wonderful and busy Christmas Eve. It began with our weekly DDM at 10:30; we were able to have some discussion on some up coming events and make sure that everything is being coordinated for them. Next month, the missionaries want to put on an activity for the ward and this weekend, being the 5th Sunday, the Bishop has asked that the missionaries provide the instruction for a combined Priesthood Relief Society lesson. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Afterward, we had lunch with our Zone Leaders before going with them to visit one of their investigators, Sister Roberta Louise Jackson. She was named after her father, Robert Louis Jackson. She will be baptized this weekend, she is very excited; she is the same age as Rosalee.

Then at 4:30 this evening we all met at the Galan home for a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. They invited all the missionaries plus several other families over, so it was quite a spread. After the eating was done, the children put on a little nativity play, it was very cute.

From there we took all the missionaries caroling; we visited 8 homes and brought a little Christmas Cheer to everyone we visited; it was a lot of fun. Our first visit was to Sister Dixon and her son Jack; they said that they had never been caroled before. You could see in their eyes that they were very touched. We have had a wonderful Christmas Eve. Here are some photos from the dinner party:
