|Decorated their own tree and everything!|
Wednesday we prepped for Zone Training which was on Thursday. Like it has been said we were re-enacting Daniel and the Lion's Den. So in the back of the church we transformed it into ancient Babylon. Imagine our gym in the church, but half that size. On the stage was the Throne Room. We stacked a bunch of chairs together, put some gold cloth over it and decked the room out in gold decorations and Egyptian hieroglyphics. The Courtyard was the section between the stage and the next curtain where all the royals could hang out. They got to eat fruit while the court musician played lovely tunes to them. We half way closed the curtain and in between we put four columns and two guards to turn it into a gate. In the next section we set up the market place. There we made Daniel's house, a beggar's corner, about four or five market stands where people could buy food and cloth and stuff like that and then a big open area where everyone could mingle.

Hello brother and sister Cooper and Denny, You have wonderful sons, they are the missionaries in our ward and they are doing great work! They are examples for us. This evening they were at our place and we had together a family evening. They were afraid to soil their white shirts, therefore my wife gave them a bib. They were very comfy with it, as you see in the picture. They kept it on for the whole evening, even when they were very seriously. This gave us a lot of fun. We and the missionaries found it at good idea to send this picture to their parents. Thank you to be good parents and our best regards Hafida & Marc

THE BATHROOM EXPERIENCE IN THE MTC - 12/27/2012
Read with caution
Once upon a time there were 5 missionaries called to serve in the Belgium/Netherlands Mission. While at the MTC they received a purple slip that simply told them to go to a room, in a building on a Thursday or their visa's would be delayed! Not wanting that they arrived punctually to see what was the matter? "Nothing", the kindly nurse smiled with a grin, "this is normal for all who depart for Belgium." Her voice got softer and sounded as if she has misplaced her voice and could not find it. The 5 missionaries looked around confused, and then with fear as 5 Biohazard bags, and several cups and viles did appear. "See in Belgium", she began with a mischievous grin, "They don't want no parasites invading their place, you must poop in this cup so we can make sure you don't have any." Wide eyed they stared in disbelief and horror, then laughing nervously took their bags to the pooper.
With only two stalls and three men in the room Elder Cooper waited as the two went to go. They first took a tinkle so as not to spill and very soon other things echoed from their tiny green (when I won't describe). As each of them moaned and then groaned with distaste, Elder Cooper sat laughing them at them right in the face. Elder Bishop warned of a smell that destroys so quickly the Cooper shoved tissues up his nose. They choked and they gagged as they began the process, then Elder Bishop puked and made Kemp feel nauseous. He lunged for the toilet to hold onto his lunch, and spilled his preservative all over the floor. So Cooper got refills while those two did puken and returned to them finished and happy as children. Thus endeth the tale of our big morning pooper, we'll never forget it as long as I'm Cooper.
Yes it's gross, but PLEASE keep this! I wanna remember it cause it was WAY funny! Love you all!
