Hermana Parkin did not write a group email this week but she asked me to pass on a couple of things.
Bethany was baptized on Sunday and it went great! She is very excited and Hermana Parkin is excited for her.
Today was transfers. Hermana Parkin has a new companion, Hermana Alvarez. She's from the Dominican Republic and she is transferring to the Bronx from Connecticut. Hermana Parkin is excited to have a new companion and even more excited that she know's Spanish so she's hoping she will help her where she is still lacking. Hermana Parkin heard from other missionaries that Hermana Alvarez is super cool so she's excited to get to know her.
Hermana Parkin will be able to Skype us on Christmas day. We're all excited to get to talk to her and see her for a bit. The mission president asked the missionaries to either call or Skype but not to split the time. So Skype it will be!
Hermana Parkin asked me to wish you all a Merry Christimas and to tell everyone THANK YOU for the packages, letters and cards!
