Mummy and Daddy,
It was so good to hear your little voices on the other end of the line!!!!!! When I talk with you, it feels like I never left. :D You all sound so good! I don't know what else to tell you that I didn't already tell you, but this week was full of food, festivities, games, fun and friendship. We had our England Leeds Mission Christmas Party at the Harrogate Army Base where we bowled, watched "It's a Wonderful Life," and received a beautiful gift of little olive wood box filled with frankincense, gold (aka pyrite) and myrrh to commemorate Christ's birth. We visited so many of the members and had such a blast with them....the pictures say it all. Christmas was wonderful this year and to top it all off, Michael Donohoe blessed the sacrament perfectly on Sunday! BAM! MIRACLE! I love being a missionary at Christmas. Everything is just a little more special and more centered on what it should be. I love you all so much and I'm so grateful to know that you're taken care of while I'm away. I'm so lucky to be doing what I'm doing! I love my Savior Jesus Christ so much! I've learned so much about him and am honored to represent him every single day.
Happy Christmas and a Very Merry New Year!
I love you so much!
Love always and forever,
Your Sister Stephanie White
