Christmas Activity!

As usual, we started out December with our ZLC on Friday. This is always such a great meeting and we love having the opportunity to see all the leaders of the mission.We have a few new faces this month...



 This year for Christmas we decided to have an activity with the missionaries in the southern zones at the home of the Lopez family in Atlixco and with the northern zones at the Mission home.  I had been making scarves for the missionaries most of the year and we gave those to them as a Christmas present from us at our activity.


all wrapped and ready to go!


 arriving at the Lopez home


welcome from the President


games, games and more games...






 
 No Christmas activity in Mexico is complete without a PiƱata...

 
 

 After the games, we went back to the Lopez home to sing Christmas songs,

 

 eat food...



watch a Christmas video...


and hand out Christmas presents...


Two days later the missionaries in the north zones gathered at the Mission Home and did all the same things...



 




no, our backyard is not this big... we went to a park just around the corner from our house

 




 
 We love our missionaries and were grateful for the opportunity to gather with them at this Christmas time of year.  We are grateful for their good spirits and their hard work as they bring the message of the divinity of Jesus Christ and the knowledge of the restored gospel to the people of Mexico. 

Merry Christmas!
