First off, phone calls... I’m looking forward to talking with y’all. Then, the next time I see you will be in the airport, crazy!
Also, cute picture of William and Mariam. They look good together. It should be a fun Christmas. And that is pretty fast, it’s good to know y’all weren’t just holding out on me, lol. I’m happy to hear you have snow! But also kinda scary with William and Mariam on the roads. I hope they travel safe. I had the worst feeling the other night as I went to bed, that William got in an accident in his way home, and it was a scary feeling. At any rate, I pray that they travel safe. At least William is a good driver. .
I’m excited to see what Garrett made! He was already so good at the forge stuff before I left, I’m excited to see how he is now. I bet he’s super good. He really latched onto this blacksmith thing. It’s pretty cool. He’s awesome. Must get it from me, lol ☺
This week was good, but not really much to tell about. We did have our fun Christmas conference on Tuesday. We ended up doing a short haka as a zone, and we sang How Can I Be. It was fun. I’ll see if I can send a video. We also made gingerbread houses, and I made one with a window! It was cool architecturally (if I do say so myself) but was lacking on the decoration side... haha. I ran out of time. But it’ll never be as cool as the one we made a few years ago. Haha, man, that was fun.
Jake came to church yesterday, even though he was sick! He said he woke up, and figured, “why not” so came. It was so good to see him. He’s really doing amazing.
Also, transfers were today, and I officially am staying here one more transfer!! I’m excited, I love these people so much.
I’ll talk to y’all soon!
All my love,
Sister Erika Marks
