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

Burning the Devil

Here in Guatemala they have a quaint custom on Dec 7th, which just happened to be our change day, where they burn the "old to make room for the new." They collect their trash and throw in a piƱata that looks like the Devil and call it "Burn the Devil" day. Some of the Devils are real works of art. They even have dancers dressed in Devil outfits who wear fireworks to simulate the burning. Scary but fun!
