The Subandriyo family has been wonderful to us. The day after Christmas their sons left for BYUH. This was taken at the Selatan branch Christmas Program on the 25th. Mary opened the packages from home. We had already opened the one from Bob’s family because we thought it only had some books we had ordered for our English class. The Calendar is a big hit here. People love to look through it and ask questions about our family.
The Zone Christmas party followed the Selatan branch program so we were not without things to do on Christmas day. It is always good to be with the missionaries. They love to get together and talk about what they are doing and share their successes and their disappointments. There is a lot of laughter and of course a lot of food is eaten. If we could not be with our immediate family, there was no better place to be than with our mission family.
