visit with Elder Williams (yippee!), good food, and spending time with some
|Elder Poore and Elder Mangeris|
back to Karlovac and prepare for Christmas Eve. We met up with Elders Poole & Mangeris, and Sisters Hertz and Yardley at 11:00 p.m. to attend Midnight Mass at the Catholic church in downtown Karlovac. We went early because we heard it fills up fast. We found a place to sit, but it wasn't long before it was full with standing room only. It was a beautiful church with painted murals throughout and magnificent chandeliers and two enormous Christmas trees in the front by the altar. The organ was loud enough to feel the vibration as we sat on the pew. We got home at 1:30 and unlike the sisters, remembered to turn off our alarm!
Christmas morning came and at about 10:00 a.m. the doorbell rang.
Our word of the week for our unuci is: dar which means gift.
Let us not forget the greatest dar of all which is our Savior Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice for all mankind.
