Christmas Zone Conference

Elder and Sister Berrett wrote a nice report on their blog about the Bushrod Island Christmas Zone Conference. They included photos of each group of missionaries in the Bushrod Island Zone.
New Kru Town and Point 4 Districts:
Front - Sisters Iwenofu, Addo, Nyamekye, Okeke;
Back - Elders Pearmain, Fairwell, Price, Manqana
An excerpt from the Berrett's post:

"President and Sister Kirkham gave each Elder a new pair of socks.  The Sisters got fans and wash cloths. And they all got a phone card to use to call home on Christmas... 
The first day of Conference was a 'fun' day.  We played games and enjoyed the talents of the missionaries. For lunch we had great sandwiches from Stop and Shop, real corn chips, and bottles of soda.  Sister Hezseltine and I made homemade treats for dessert. 
The second day was a more spiritual day.  Elder Berrett and I did a presentation on 'Eyes up - Do the Work'.  The AP's and President and Sister Kirkham also did presentations.  We had African food for lunch.  It was good, but I think I still enjoy American better! 
I loved being able to look around the room and know the names of everyone of the missionaries.  Made me a little teary eyed to realize how far away from home we all are but how happy everyone is to be in Liberia serving their Heavenly Father and sharing the gospel with the good people here.  We love these missionaries and are grateful to be serving with them.  We know they will have an amazing Christmas."
We are so grateful for the love the Berrett's have for our son and those he serves with. Here's an excerpt from an email I got with a couple extra photos from Sister Berrett:
"Sister Price - Your Elder ask me to send you these pictures.  He said, "It will make my mom so happy!"  So of course we want you to have them!!! ... We spent the last two days with our Bushrod Island Missionaries at a District Zone Conference.  One day was a 'fun' day where the missionaries shared their talents.  We were glad that Elder Price was able to share his.  Besides playing the piano beautifully, he did some great yoyo tricks.  A man of many talents!

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.  I think this will be a special Christmas for you with a missionary in the field who is helping the people of Liberia come unto Christ and know of His love for them. He's doing well and still smiling…." 
Still smiling
