Santa Came Early!

Are we the luckiest mission in the world?  I'd say YES - especially after this week.  Not only do we live in the shadow of the Temple and have the privilege of being the Lord's missionaries, but we also have so many opportunities to experience many wonderful events.

The majority of the mission had the wonderful opportunity to attend the 
Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert!

The music was fabulous, the spirit strong, and the guests were talented and heart warming.  The concert featured the Tony Award winning tenor Alfie Boe, venerated broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw, and the "Candy Bomber" himself, Gail Halvorsen.
You can read a summary of the event here!

 The 1st & 2nd transfer sisters didn't get to attend the concert, but they were able to attend 
The Forgotten Carols by Michael McLean!  

It was a wonderful production and memorable evening.  We are so grateful for Michael and his generosity in inviting us to the performance!

Both performances were outstanding and we grateful for the chance to attend.  Thank you President & Sister Gillette for the opportunity!
