Wed. Dec. 26th 2012

For an activity, the young missionaries had made arrangements to help distribute food at a Greek Orthodox church.  They dressed nicely in casual clothes, but when they got there the people said there had been some misunderstanding and so, our missionaries didn't get to help!  About 1:00 pm - we all gathered at Halandri chapel for some activities.  There were two presentations of a spiritual nature.  First Elder Elks spoke about Patriarchal Blessings, (he is a Patriarch) - it was really interesting.  Then President Freestone spoke about the area - Adam-ondi-Ahman.  His land is right next to this area - (he grows corn and soy beans).  It is not a subject that is covered much and we all found it absorbing. After supper we watched a movie called "Front of the Class"  -  it's about a young man who has Tourette's Syndrome whose ambition was to be a teacher - it was really inspiring - beautiful story.
