It Was Merry Talkin' to You!

Family and Friends,

No official letter this week from Elder Smith but we did have a wonderful skype/video call with Nick Sunday evening our time (it was his regular p-day, Monday there). He is looking well and enjoying a new area and his first Taiwanese companion who has just been out in the field 3 months and is 18 years old. Elder Smith would like to wish all family and friend a Merry Christmas and thanks you for any and all prayers offered in his behalf. We are amazed at how well he can speak the Mandarin language and realize that small decisions like taking a language in high school for credit, was a means to helping him prepare for this opportunity to share the gospel with the people of Taiwan. Elder Smith has 5 more months left and is going strong! 

Merry Christmas from our family to each of you,

The Smiths
