Christmas Conferences

In December we traveled the mission to meet with each Zone and have a Christmas conference.  It was the best way for us to spend this holiday season.  Being with our missionaries is such a gift for us.

The Copiapo Zone

The Atacama Zone

The Chanaral Zone

The Vallenar Zone

Waiting for President Bruce

The La Portada Zone

The Antofagasta Zone

The Calama Zone


The Iquique Zone

The Alto Hospicio Zone

The Los Olivos Zone

The Costanera Zone

After lunch we had a gift exchange.  The missionaries listened to the story of Elder Milagro who entered the mission at Christmas.  He missed his family but knew that he needed to baptize.  Each time the work baptize/baptism was spoken the missionaries passed their gifts to the right.  And each time they heard the word Christmas they passed their gifts to the left.  It got a little wild but everyone had fun with the gift exchange game.

We judged the goofiest gifts.  The recipient and giver of the goofiest/funniest gift had to dance and sing to "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" for the group.  The plunger won goofiest in Iquique.

Our Assistant modeled the goofy glasses.

This Elder really enjoyed dancing to this favorite Primary song.

Even the Sisters had a chance to sing for the group.

Each missionary received an MCA temple recommend holder with the mission scripture.

Lunch is always a highlight at conferences.

From the Mission Chile Antofagasta:  Feliz Navidad!!!
