On thursday the mission got together for a Christmas Conference! We sang Christmas hymns in the beginning, and for the second half we got to have a lunch and listen to each zone sing a Christmas themed song that represented different cultures. There was African, Australian, Islanders, and more, and we were New Zealand. It was awesome being able to see old companions and friends and spend time just celebrating Christmas.
And on friday, I drove to the mission home and dropped off Elder Banks after saying our goodbyes. It was an awesome transfer, and he was a great companion, so it was a bit sad to see him go. Then Elder Pierce and I went back to my area, and went back to normal missionary work until today...
And now Elder Pierce and I have our official new companions! So I'm with Elder Martin, who's from Utah and is a really cool guy, so we're looking forward to working together! We'll have a lot of fun trying to figure out what we're doing and getting to know the area, since I've only been here for about a month. But yeah, that's about it for our week!
I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and I wont be emailing next week, since I'll be skyping my family!
Thanks for all your love and support!
