Office Christmas Party
12 Days of Christmas - 3 French Hens
Unlike most mission offices, we have employees that work for the Church in the office. There are 2 reasons, 1) the mission has not been able to consistently have senior couples called to New Delhi, and 2) as mentioned before many people, including most of the vendors, landlords and contractors that the Church uses in New Delhi don't speak English. So we had a Christmas party for the office this week and had the mission's 3 employees and their families along with us and President and Sister Sackley gather for food and fun at the Mission Home (the home of the Mission President). Kids are what make Christmas fun and we played games and sang songs and the kids got presents to open. Our contribution was to teach the kids the 12 days of Christmas - a tradition we had all the time our boys were growing up. I'm sure Bryan, Eric, Tyler and Jared are groaning right now as they think about the years that Dad would don the Santa hat and we would perform in front of their mother the 12 Days of Christmas. Well boys, the tradition lives on now in India for a whole new generation...
