The Othello Stake Leadership Celebrates Christmas in Royal

2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (1)As soon as our MLC missionaries had gone back to work, we headed north to Royal for their annual Christmas Feast with the Othello Stake Presidency, Bishops and their wives.  This is always a beautiful evening the Stake Presidency provides to thank those who serve there.  We are grateful to be on their list of friends.2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (2)Tonight we met in the Allred home (where we often stay when we are up north).  We love the Allred family and their kindness to so many.  Tonight was amazing.  And delicious.  We love our friends in the Othello Stake.2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (3)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (5)President Michael and Lisa Christensen:2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (7)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (8)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (9)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (10)The best kitchen help ever!2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (11)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (12)The Bergesons, Master Carrot Farmer and Stake Patriarch.2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (13)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (14)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (15)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (16)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (17)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (18)A special musical number topped off the evening!2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (19)2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (20)Here is a beautiful poem Pres Christensen shared with us this evening:

After the party ended, we had a visit from our Favorite Visitor Ever–Jim Hawkes, our Bishop, Home Teacher, Neighbor and Friend.  We were up almost until midnight visiting about loved ones at home and our families.  We Love Jim Hawkes.  His daughter, Katie Christensen, lives here in Royal.  Jim came to watch his grandsons play in and win the 1A State Championship Football game this week.2017-12-5 Othello Stake Leadership CMS (23)
