The very best Christmas present for a missionary family is hearing from their missionary! We definitely had our share of technical problems today, but it was still great to be able to hear and see Scott. Dad, Mom, Melissa, and Craig were on the computer in New York (with guest appearances by a few extended family members like cousin Janet and uncle Bruce) and Eric, Noelle, and James P were on the computer in Utah. Quite the group!
Scott sounds like he’s doing really well and is happy to be serving in Santarém. He told us about a wonderful baptism in the ward, and a little more about what he’s been doing lately. It was great to see him speak with the other missionaries there, lapse into Portuguese LOTS of times!, and give us that Scott smile! We sure do love our missionary!
