A night to remember...

Chris was able to say goodbye to Arizona cousins, aunt and uncles thanks to a great party organized by Grandma and Grandpa Nielson. The menu included Chris' favorites of meat, potatoes and carrots. We hear that the Russian people may eat a little like that maybe? Lucky for Chris if they do because he loves it...no cabbage this night though! Whew.

Here are some pictures that highlighted the evening. Thanks to Aunt Tana, Aunt Pam and Grandpa Arnett who provided entertainment and trivia about Russia and Chris and to all who came that night to support him. And thanks to Chris for sharing his stalwart testimony with all of us! 2 more weeks to go!

Grandma and Grandpa Nielson had everything decorated with Russian flags and colors!

Chris shares his missionary scripture D&C 35:13-14. So powerful!

Gigi and Chris - (love the Russian Hockey player shirt, Chris)

Grandma...I don't think there's enough food here

Chris sharing some time with Grandma and Grandpa Arnett

Great part of the evening...Grandpa Arnett shares one of his great stories with all of the children...it has become a great memory for Christopher of his Grandpa Arnett.

Chris shares his spiritual strength through song by playing "Onward Christian Soldiers" Jon Schmidt style. Great way to end an awesome night!
