Well we are busy getting ready for Christmas.  We’ve been to a variety of programs and parties over the past week as we all prepare for celebrating the birth of our Savior.  More about those events in later posts.  A few presents are already under the tree. (Packages seem to arrive only on Monday’s in clumps of more than one- we still haven’t figured out the pattern.  You get a call and they expect that you pick it up immediately.  You have to pay 200 T for the phone call and have the customs official look at the package.)

Its a great encouragement to us when we hear from you via comments and emails.  To keep up to date on what is happening with the Wood clan in Mongolia you can subscribe to this blog by signing up at left.  When you subscribe you receive an email copy of any blog posting from this site.  We also want to encourage you to leave comments or questions- we will try to answer them below or in a future post.  We have not had much time to write since Thanksgiving but we now have a two week break from school and will be posting several thoughts and pictures- stay tuned and keep reading.

Merry Christmas To All-

Mark, Cinda, Annika and Toby
