We have just returned from Tyumen where we held the Siberian Zone Conference for Christmas. The missionaries enjoyed viewing the First Presidency's Christmas Devotional, a testimony meeting, a mission slide show, a musical number by the Sister Konstantinova and Sister Zakharova, a white-elephant gift exchange, lunch out at Casa Mia's, and the movie "The Ultimate Gift". Elder Dewey was not with us, as he was in Kazakhstan on a visa trip. Also, Elder and Sister Palmer were in Spain waiting for their visas. We are happy to report that they will be back in their zones for Christmas. We did sing "Happy Birthday" to Elder Rogers. Indeed, it was a cold day, but it was really warm inside. Thank you for the support that you give your missionary. We love and appreciate each one.
President and Sister Allen
