Thanksgiving in Africa

Thanksgiving is the time to be with family. Since all of us are half way around the world from our families the Mission President graciously invited all of the senior couples over to the mission home to celebrate together so we would not sit at our flats and be depressed. These are such great people we love spending time with them. Only one couple was not able to be there. They were with a group visiting the Johannesburg Temple.

Sister Broadbent leads us in some fun singing as Karen looks on.

Looks like a lot of fun! We miss our associations with valiant Kenya couples! You're doing a great work!
