We are all happy and healthy and busy. There's a lot less people in the house, but somehow we seem just as busy, and I know we are just as blessed. WE hope for many more years of togetherness and friendship and hope you'll all come and see us this year.
Greetings from Elder Baker in Tanna Vanuatu!
Christmas Poem(written by Quinn)
Yo Nulkan, Nakilea, Mi Save
Yu Talen tru o yu stap giaman pleiplei?
Mi Suve se Jos in I tru
Be Mi Wantem Save Sapos Yu Save tu?
Mo Wokia I blogn karem man I kamaot long tudar!
Misinari Wok I wan wok blong yumi evriwan
Sapos yumi no mekem laef blong yumiidun.
Mi wantem askem yufala blong serum gospelia wetem wawa fren
Mo Mi askem longnem blong jisas kraes, amen.
I know, I know, I know
Do you really know and does it show?
I know this church is true
But I want to know if you know it too?
I like Malekula and Tanna exactly the same
The gospel is true and this work isn’t a game.
Missionary work is for All of us
And if we don’t do it, in who do we trust?
I want all of you to share the gospel with One friend
And I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
The Christmas season is a time to share the ‘glad tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.’ (Luke 2:10) I love you all and I want all to know I know Christ lives!
