Christmas in Ghana

Merry Christmas to All Our Families out there! Happy New Year, too!
2 weeks before Christmas we celebrated Christmas as a mission.  We met at the Kaneshie Stake Center 2 different days (half of the mission each day) for lunch  - pizza (not nearly enough), French Fries, Chicken and Rice.   We had a talent show and enjoyed our time together.  We also delivered all the mail we had collected.   Thanks to all who participated in the Talent show and made our time together enjoyable.  We had beautiful singing, card tricks, stories, violin and piano numbers and the island missionaries+ performed the "HAKA" for us.  I saw a video of the "Haka" done by missionaries in the mall in New York City and was going to post ours (our missionaries really look professional!) but will do that soon when I have the download time.  Something to look forward to!  We loved being together with all of our missionaries. 
Below are some shots at the Christmas Conferences - both days.

Our office Elders before Elder Asay went home.  Miss you Elder Asay!

Christmas treats!

Once we get together it's hard to say goodbye.

The day before Christmas the Office Council delivered the rest of Christmas packages to all the Zones.  Thanks to the Walls and the Daltons who delivered to the Bush and the Office Elders and Assistants who delivered to greater Accra Zones.  Any post-Christmas arrival packages will be distributed as quickly as possible.

Thanks to all our families who remembered us at this Christmas time. 

Hope you all got to enjoy your Christmas calls - missionaries and families!

Disclaimer:  Uploading pictures seems slower and slower - hoping to get an upgrade in the New Year. I have lots more pictures than time:)

  1. Great work, Accra West! We look forward to being your neighbors in July as we are honored to take over for the Judds in Accra. We were the PEF missionaries until February 2013, so we just missed seeing your mission begin. Perhaps some of your Missionaries remember us. We have so many questions to ask you about where you are living and who are your counselors, etc. Love to all and our prayers are with you.
