Brent had some wood delivered today with which to make that hockey game - he was moaning about the cost of the wood (he wanted fir plywood and the guy just looked at him and pointed to what they had - Brent didn't recognize it - thought it might be a maple!) and I told him that it would be his gift to the missionaries!! So now has this little project to keep him occupied "in his spare time"!!
We received our first Christmas card today - it was a thrill. I am beginning to feel a little sad about being so far away from dear familiar faces and family. I can handle it though.
Another missionary called in today to say he had lost his bank card. The missionaries each had a bank card and fund are deposited into their accounts each month, so losing your bank card is not good! He'll be waiting about two weeks before he gets a replacement card!
