On December 21st we had a mission party at the mission home in Tokyo. There are 81 sets of missionaries assigned to this mission. We had purchased 560 hot dogs and buns, chili, sauerkarut, and chips from the base to serve for lunch. I guess after being in a foreign country after awhile a good old fashioned hot dogs looks mighty good. Each zone put on a little skit (picture on the left) and they had a white elephant gift exchange (picture on the right). Along with the missionaries from Japan and America there are about 8 from Brazil, a few from England and Australia, a Sister from Mongolia and a new Elder from Thailand.
