Chris is in charge of doling out rent money to companionships, making travel and passport arrangements and tech support for the mission.
Now we know why he had the shades...
The office elders got to see The Nutcracker at the Kiev Opera House.

Chris is enjoying the holiday spirit in Ukraine. This will be his second mission Christmas. People are happy to hear about forever families at this time of year and he is hoping that will extend to some continuing investigators. He says:

Chris LOVED the festivities for the dedication of the temple and was especially happy to see how excited everyone was to meet President Monson. Later in the week, he was assigned to be DL and a trainer--making a new companion every single transfer for the first year of his mission. He promises to treat this one better so that he'll stay longer, ha ha! Chris had a funny story this week:

As Chris prepares to give tours for the new Kiev Temple, he still continues to have crazy adventures in his daily routine as well! The top image shows the relief of he and his companion after they lost and then recovered the (only!) area book for Lutsk on a bus with an irregular route! Chris also visited the castle in Lutsk and met a veteran from St. Petersburg. He's very excited for the temple--it occupies many of his thoughts!

Amidst the summer swelter, Chris and his companion are tearing Lutsk apart looking for the Gospel-ready! People often mistake them for twins and that seems to be a great conversation starter. They are currently teaching two girls that just agreed to a baptism date--Chris is very excited! The branch out there is full of helpful, faithful saints who support the missionary effort with all their hearts. Everyone is in full work mode for the temple opening this fall. Go Chris!

Chris is in high spirits. Although his creative attempts (loaves of banana bread, origami classes, etc.) at drawing investigators are not yet yielding fruit, he's excited to start a new adventure in another part of the city this week. Chris says his next strategy will be to toss around an American football. These aren't available in the Ukraine and people are often very interested to see one. Here he is last week with an advertisement for a tire replacement shop.
