Hello everyone! I hope y’all are staying warm!
This week was awesome and busy and cold!
First we went to South Whidby Island for P-Day. We rode the ferry across the sea! It was really cool and obviously my first time.πŸ˜„ On the island we were picked up by a member, Scooter Thornton. 
She’s in the ward that Sister Bell served in. We drove around to see the town and guess what? There are bunnies everywhere! It is the cutest little town ever! We ate lunch at one of the diners. I had eggnog dipped french toast. Then we visited some people that Sister Bell wanted to see and did a tiny bit of shopping.
We also had Family Home Evening at the D’ Andrea’s. We helped put a felt tree for their 1 year old to decorate and play with. Roberta Champion, a recent convert, also helped with the tree. Later that week we helped Roberta with a project she was preparing for Activity Days. We got a little artsy crazy with the craft!
We got to go Christmas caroling with the Youth on Wednesday. It was pretty great! We got to see some less actives that way. After caroling out in the cold, the leaders had some cookies, hot chocolate, and other goodies prepared for us when we returned.
South Point is a place we volunteer at. It is a retirement home type place. We sometimes go there for Bingo or we help put together decorations to make the place home-like. This time we helped put together Christmas bulbs filled with candy for the Christmas Party there.
We got snow! Again! Washington isn’t supposed to get snow! At least is helps with our miles. πŸ˜‹ Haha! And we have lots of awesome members who are willing to drive us places when we really need it.
This past Sunday, I guess yesterday, we had the ward Christmas concert. This ward even has an orchestra! It was great celebrating the Saviors birth with such beautiful music.
Our investigator Jo is doing really well. She feels good about what we have taught her so far and she is doing so much to study the Book of Mormon. She is and amazing woman, and I can’t wait till she experiences all the good God has in store for her!
Have a great week and Merry Christmas!
Sister Tomkinson
