As you can see from the smiles on the faces above, one of the most look forward to experiences on Christmas is the opportunity to call home and talk to family. Now most missionaries use either Skype or FaceTime to make their calls so their family – mainly their mothers – can see and talk to them. In many areas of the mission members invite the elders to use their computers to make these calls. We invited the Potchefstroom elders over so they could use ours and have some privacy.
Elder Taylor was able to use multiple windows on Skype to talk to his family in different locations. Elder Liera mainly spent his time talking to his mom and dad. The hour passed quickly and with great reluctance they said goodbye and closed down the link.
