Thanksgiving Dinner

Tony, a very nice young man who used to work at the area office, is from California, but now living with his family in NZ.  He and his wife Loretta graciously invited the senior missionary couples to join their family for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.  We had turkey and all the trimmings.  Everyone contributed and it was all delicious.  We enjoyed being in their home with their children and grandparents.  After dinner we all shared some of the many blessings and things we are thankful for.  It was the next best thing to being with our own families!

  1. I'm so glad that you could celebrate your traditional Thanksgiving Day. It must be unusual for you to have warm weather at this time.
