We spent New Year's Eve with our dear friends, Carma and Emory Christensen. We had a wonderful visit! Several other good friends were there as well: Jerry and Jan Carney, Gene and Marie Heinrichs, Ray and Charlotte Jenkins, Terry and Darlene Steele, among others. There was plenty of good food and we got to tell stories of some of the experiences we have had on our mission, as well as catching up with what was going on with our friends from Shamrock Ward. We love these good people! As much as we love our mission - and we TRULY do! - we also miss time spent in the company of our friends we have shared so much history with. It was surely good to get to connect again on the special, unexpected window of opportunity back home.
