is upon us! Being in the bubble of missionary life seems to have
eliminated a good deal of the hustle and bustle that usually accompany
this time of year. People have started giving us cards and small gifts
and I realized that I completely hadn't thought about getting Christmas
gifts for anyone at all. As one of my favorite Sudanese investigators
would say, "too biz!"
Our darling Kitty was baptized this
weekend!! After six months of patience and love, her husband was able to
baptize her! :) As soon as she came out of the water, she shot up a
fist pump followed by two peace signs! It was probably the most excited
I've seen her ever. She and Ed just glowed afterwards. :) They're headed
off to Malaysia for about two months on the 23rd, so we had to say
goodbye on Sunday.
Kitty blew us two kisses and left with a big smile on her face. In a
year, they can be sealed in the temple! What a blessing it is to unite
families in the gospel!
In other news, Chirag was finally
able to come to church!!! His boss rearranged his schedule so that he
can make it to sacrament meeting now. It's the greatest!!! He manages
this really nice restaurant in the city, and he invited us to come have
lunch there last Saturday! It was divine. And free. Remind me to teach
more investigators who can get me free food. :)
