December 11--18, 2016December 11th was the Magelang Open House and our crazy trip home. (See previous post). Elder & Sister Jefferey were so happy to be in the new building that they had worked so hard to find. It was a great almost end to their mission. We will miss them so much and the Magelang Branch and all of Central Java will be sad to see them go. This is the new artwork in Terminal 3 in Jakarta. It used to be a guy that looked like Iron Man and now it reminds me of an octopus.
On December 16 we traveled to Manado on the island of Sulawesi. We saw lots of Christmas decorations, delivered some Christmas gifts to our missionaries, witnessed an eight year old boy's baptism and the baptism of the wife of a man who's been a member for a few months. Faithful saints in Manado! They had a Christmas program and dinner.
Poinsettias in the Jakarta airport!
Practicing! This little boy, Michael, is a favorite of mine! He loves music. Elder Hunt is a great missionary as well. White Christmas in Manado!
