Elder Owens did a lot of snow shoveling to try and keep ahead - BUT the snow always won!!
And we enjoy the 'wildlife' around town!! Elder Owens did get stuck in a snow drift trying to
run down chase a cat - hahaha
This is the result of the Elders showing their love and appreciation for Elder Owens (they wouldn't tease him, if they didn't like him, eh?)
The mission President and his wife loaded their car (Santa's sleigh) with all the mail and Christmas packages for the mission and spent many hours on the road delivering. We met them in the parking lot of the Stake Center and loaded our van with the Lethbridge Zone's goodies and....
made lots of elders and sisters happy Christmas Eve day!!!
Christmas Eve dinner with our YSA Elders and a young man from the ward.
This was a 5 course gormet tmeal cooked by Dad (Bro. Joosten). We ate and socialized for 3 hours!! It was a wonderful ending to a beautiful 'White Christmas'
OUR PAST 3 MONTHS HAVE BEEN FILLED WITH:
Baptisms - Elder Owens was asked to baptize a Young Single Adult named, Gino.
Full-time Elders and Sisters - this was a picture of the zone the day before transfers.
How we love working, helping, and teaching with these 'Angels in Mortal Clothing'
YES, it can get pretty cold (-22 C), but our hearts and souls are warm in our testimony of Jesus Christ and the joy His plan of Happiness brings to those we teach!!
~HAPPY NEW YEAR~
May this coming year bring blessings and love.
Elder and Sister Owens
