During December we travel the zone from North to South and celebrated Christmas with all of our missionaries. We had Leadership Training each morning with Zone Leaders, District Leaders and Trainers and then at the lunch all of the missionaries joined us for lunch, cookie decorating and a gift exchange. The following are pictures from each party. There is no order and there are lots (probably too many) photos but I wanted to get as many missionaries in the blog as possible.
The Hermanas of Arica showing their best Charlies Angels poses with their new Hoven sunglasses.
In Copiapo we were delighted to have Copiapo North Zone portray the Christmas Story, complete with costumes.
Elder and Hermana Richardson have moved out of the office and down to Vallenar (the southern most city in the mission) to serve as Branch President in the Baquedano Branch. We miss them in Antofagasta.
This month I ate pizza twice, had empanadas from Florencias and homemade tacos in Arica. Is it any wonder that my waistline is expanding? But eating lunch with the missionaries is wonderful because we share time together. Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad to all the missionaries in the greatest mission in the world: Chile Antofagasta.
