Sunday, Dec 13th we had a great video Primary with Abbi and Ezra. Moroni’s lessons on Faith and Charity were planted in their fertile minds. (The principle of Hope was one too many for our 20 minute lesson.) It doesn’t always work too smoothly, but today was satisfying to Nana and Papa. The sisters we visit in the branch were oh, so lucky this week. Sis Hatfield has the best soft ginger cookie recipe ever, and she made some yesterday to share. This is when we start putting on the holiday (waistline) spread. We invited our beautiful missionary sisters from our neighborhood to dinner so that we could say goodbye to Sister Kyree Huffaker. She was reassigned to Missouri St Louis in May from Korea Busan, and never left this teaching area. As a consequence, we have come to know and love her well. Tomorrow, she goes home to Montana. Her companion, Sister Jarman, had a call to Korea also, but hasn’t made it there yet, arriving in MSLM this summer. She shed many tears saying goodbye to her first and so far only infield companion, Sis Huffaker. Like most things, there are a few advantages to our COVID environment. This time, the entire mission has been invited to join a video fireside to hear the departing missionaries’ testimonies, something that was previously shared in a small group. Pre-COVID, the senior missionaries were permitted to participate. Since the pandemic, we have been excluded. But today, 250 missionaries were strengthened by these stalwart missionary testimonies.
