This highlight of our week was our first district YSA activity that we held on Saturday. The Kagaris, a couple who live in Cork who have the calling to organize district YSA activities, decided to have a New Years' party here in Limerick at the chapel. So the idea was to have some games and food and have a social activity. We have met most of the YSAs in the area around Limerick but haven't met those from further away so we were looking forward to this opportunity. We were charged with getting all of the food together so we spent a good part of New Year's Eve doing just that and hauling it over to the kitchen at the chapel. The idea was for the YSAs to bring their favourite board or card games but Sister Wilson thought it would be a good idea to have some group games. So she organized some Minute to Win It games and it was a good thing. No board or card games showed up with the YSAs but we had a great time playing Minute to Win It! We started off the evening with a spiritual thought about the game of life and playing by the rules and then went into our games and had some great food. We finished with a group game on guessing lyrics to songs organized by one of our Limerick YSAs. We had an enjoyable evening. It was great to have Elder and Sister Winget here from Tralee to help us out. We had 20 YSAs in attendance and are so grateful for those who made the effort to travel here to enjoy the evening with us.
On New Year's Eve we invited all the local missionaries to join us for the evening but the zone leaders were the only ones who could make it. We had a good supper with them and then watched a movie of their choice. We had a good time with them.
We are looking forward to the new year and the opportunity to serve the Young Single Adults here in the Limerick District and to serve with the other missionaries. We wish all of you a Happy New Year and pray the Lord blesses you in all your endeavours.
