Nate and the Pink Tie!

I love our Assistants! They're the best. This morning I happened to compliment Elder White on his pink tie. It's very Christmasy because it kind of looks like a candy cane. He said he really likes this tie then mentioned, "Funny thing about this tie," and told me this story. He was wearing it a few weeks ago when they went to Dairy Queen (I think) for lunch. A young man who works there, Nate, came us to him and complimented his tie. That brief comment led to about a 1/2 hour discussion about the Church. Several days later they were back at DQ and Nate asked him where the pink tie was. He'd remembered Elders W & M. Looks like the beginning of a nice friendship.

I'm not too sure about Elder Morrell's expression. He was probably just being his usual fun, funny self. I wonder if he needs to adopted. How can there possibly be so many great missionaries in one mission? Lucky us!

So this is what Office Elders do on Preparation Day--Prepare for Christmas!  Thanks, Elders! It's looking great.

Sister Astle and Sister Jewett needed to come to BR today to pick up some meds. But they had to wait a few hours before they'd be ready. Well, darn! Maybe you'd better wait at our place since it was already 5 pm. They picked up Subway, came over, watched last year's Christmas with the Tabernacle Choir and had a fun visit. We are so blessed to have such wonderful missionaries here.
