Christmas in Gjakova!

Elder Stewart did not get a P-Day on the Monday before Christmas because of Christmas Day. So, our Skype session was the replacement. It was awesome!! It was so good to see his face and hear his voice.

Before leaving to serve his mission, he expressed two main wishes. He hoped he would get to serve part of his mission in Kosovo and he hoped he would get an Albanian companion. In October he got his first wish when he was transferred to Prishtina, Kosovo and the week before Christmas he got his second wish when he got a new companion from Elbasan. His name is Elder Lesi. He doesn't speak any English. So, part of the time, Parker is to speak to him in English to help teach him.

He spent Christmas Day at the Military Base and had a delicious turkey dinner there. In the evening, they had another dinner with Elder and Sister Tooley. Sounds like it was a wonderful Christmas Day and while we missed him here, it made for a fantastic Christmas present for us to Skype with him. :)

His next P-Day will be on New Years Day.
