We LOVE New York City at Christmas. President Morgan and I were able to go to the City for a day and see all the amazing decorations.

|We had a pretty successful day shopping for our kids!|
We had a wonderful lunch with our new Employment Center Couple, Elder and Sister Ladle, and Sister Karen Findlay and Sister Flossie Spencer.
The Church had a HUGE initiative in Times Square this month. He Is The Gift has been a real blessing to our missionaries and to the people of NYC. The church sponsored 2 large billboards right on Times Square and 2 very large video screens that showed a portion of the video every few minutes. Our missionaries have had great success in proselyting with "He Is The Gift" and asking how everyone will share this gift.
We were happy to have Elder Tony Perkins, of the Seventy come to view the initiative in the City. He was able to stay and give some instruction at our New Missionary Training meeting.
After Christmas we all went to George's Diner in the Bronx for breakfast. Every missionary in the NYNYN tries to tackle the challenge of eating a George's Special!
|Jared, Sawyer and Sloane couldn't finish the George's special|
|Peter completed the challenge today! Elder Smith, Elder Coleman and Ryan couldn't do it!|
|Parker and Elder Staheli finished all their breakfast specials, but President Morgan won't get his name on the wall!|
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
