All with the Spirit of Christmas
We completed zone conferences on Thursday this week. It was with mixed emotions as well. They are alot of work for me...remembering birthdays, baptisms that need to be recognized with candy letters, cookie plates; picture board for zone and district
pictures and then all the little extras for this special month...gifts, food, nativity, music, etc. But, I know the missionaries really appreciate this special time and that is what makes it all worthwhile. The highlight, all three years, of our Christmas zone conferences has been the Christmas Story tradition. I love this time with our missionaries. We have done it different ways each year and it is always special. This year....I suppose, it was so special because it was our last....but, as we read the Christmas story from Luke and sang as a choir or angels or, solo or duets, the Spirit was so sweet and the message so strong of the divinity of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. How grateful I am for this special time in my life to feel of our Savior's Love and share that with our missionaries. We love them so very much. I am posting a picture of the Silao District with Elders Tenney, Ray, Lopez J, Guajardo, Guthrie and Conde. This is just a sampling of our special missionaries that serve the Lord in the Leon Mexico Mission. The zone picture is of Aguascalientes under the direction of their fearless zone leaders Elder Ditto and Elder Ruiz I am not sure what is the message behind their creative poise.....
