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

Pastorella in Coban

For the 4th consecutive year the Coban saints sponsored a “Pastorella”, which is a live nativity using real animals and people to depict Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem. Our missionaries, in the area, participated in dress as well as in the choir. They had about 200 people gather at Central Park and walk about 1 mile towards a shopping center where the city stopped all traffic to allow the procession to pass. A program was presented by the Coban Stake telling the nativity story to all in attendance in the mall. It received local and national news coverage. (see complete slide show to the right)
