Guatemala City North Mission

...let us labor diligently: for if we should cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation for we have a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God. Moroni 9:6

Christmas Nativity in Coban

The missionaries had a very special experience in participating in a community Nativity organized by the members of the ward in Coban. The presentation started at the Central Park with members dressed in robes and Sheppard’s wear complete with donkey. The members of the prosession sang hymns and ended at a nearby mall where the Christmas story was retold using the live actors as illustrations to the scriptures read from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Intermittedly, the choir presented some musical carols to enhance the presentation. This opportunity was a wonderful event for contacting and sharing the Christmas spirit.

Zone Conferences with a Christams Objective

How wonderful to be in Guatemala for Christmas. We toured the mission twice this month with the objective of getting all of Santa’s packages delivered and ensure that all the missionaries had something to be opened on the special Christmas Day.

Zone conference had a special Christmas theme with all the missionaries participating in singing carols from home and other Latin American countries. Each Zone had a special Christmas Luncheon as well as a gift from the mission to be hung on the wall for years to come. Our Goal as a mission was to have a “white Christmas” by baptizing more than in our previous months. This would be a fitting gift for our Savior, in return for his precious gift of eternal life to all of us.
