Happy Thanksgiving!

This week we went up to Nairobi for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner at the Mission Home with all the Senior Missionaries and President and Sister Broadbent of the Kenya, Nairobi Mission. Everyone brought something to contribute to make our Thanksgiving as traditional as possible. I signed up in October for our family favorite "Apple Cinnamon Yams".  I thought they would have yams by November but I was wrong and no one I asked  from Dar es Salaam to Nairobi had even heard of them. The best we could do was Sweet Potatoes, but I have to tell you, they are not a very good substitute for yams. All in all, they turned out ok and people still enjoyed  them.

Kenya Nairobi Mission Senior Couples

On Friday we enjoyed the Quarterly Senior Couples Conference at the Mission Offices. We enjoyed meeting four new Senior Missionary Couples, The Babcocks, Pugmires, Kellems and Schwabs...all serving in Kenya. We received training on the new Temple Patron Assistance Fund and other valuable information and discussions. We had the opportunity to present a short presentation on developing Christlike attributes. It was a great conference!
