We were able to talk to Jake this morning for Christmas...he sounds well and happy and very engrossed in the work. He had a wonderful 1st Christmas in the mission field and was enjoying his Christmas evening at a member's home named Patrick. He said he had gotten most of our packages and he had had a "sweet" day! They spent Christmas Eve with some other members who were wonderful enough to email us pictures of the Elders...Jacob included! Thought we would share these with all of you!
