A dear family in the ward, the Naulls invited us to share their Christmas feast, so lovingly prepared and shared! Their parents celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary on Christmas too! We so enjoyed that time together!Digital Camera Digital Camera How amazing to be so far from so many loved people in our lives and still have such a lovely Christmas!  We’re so grateful for kindness, service, Christlike love and sharing! We’re so grateful for the Savior, for His birth, life, sacrifice, atonement, and for restoring His church that has so much to offer to families and all of us! ‘So glad we can share these wonderful blessings here in England! Happy New Year to all of you! Cheerio!
