MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
Christmas will finally be here in just two more days, Malaysian time or three more days if you live in the states. We'll let you all know how Christmas is so you won't have to get up early and wonder. One of the advantages of being almost a day ahead of you in the states. We know the future before you do.
We had a wonderful conference in Singapore. Singapore is decorated a whole lot for Christmas. It can really get you in the Christmas spirit if it weren't for the fact that you are wiping sweat off your face every two minutes and the air is so think with humidity a frog would strangle. Other than that, you would think you were right back home in the cold and snow. While at the conference we were able to meet Elder Wiberg from Roy!!! His grandparents are Dean and Beverly Wiberg whom some of you might remember.
We were in charge of a senior service project for the senior missionaries while we were there. We made some fleece lap blankets. Do you know how hard it is to find fleece in Malaysia? They look at you like "why in the world would you want anything made of fleece here". Couldn't find any in Malaysia but was able to find some in Singapore, on sale even for 1/2 price (I think they wanted to get rid of fleece) and then they gave me an extra 15% off of that price to take it off their hands. Good deal for us.
We also put together some goodie kits for the children in the cancer unit of the big hospital there:
We had two parties to attend last night, Saturday. The first one was for Cheshire Homes, a home for the physically and mentally challenged. LDS Charities supplies wheelchairs for several of their homes throughout Malaysia.
We had to leave this party early to go to the KK1 Branch Christmas party. They had a program before eating:
Everyone brought goodies to share. This is what we took:
Well we want to wish everyone a
Very Merry Christmas. We miss you all so very much especially at this time of year. We are quite homesick right now. Drop us a line if you get the chance. Love you all E/S Read
