Something quite lovely happened the end of December when 3 large boxes arrived in the office from America. The boxes, sent by a Secret Santa, were filled with Christmas stockings which were filled with wonderful treats for 20 missionaries. I was the lucky one, who with President Sorenson, chose the 20 missionaries who would receive these stockings from America. We made sure that each of our Russian missionaries received one and it was not easy deciding who would get the others. All of our missionaries are so wonderful!
The lovely lady from America who put these stockings together has a missionary here in the field and wanted to share with those who might not otherwise get much for Christmas.
Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa and he showed up in Moscow Russia and brought a smile to some of our precious missionaries.
