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 in Guatemala

I love the light displays of Guatemala City. They remind me of the type that used to be popular in the States when I was a girl. They also have nativities all over the place, in commercial stores, public squares, parks, just every where...even gas stations. They also have little stands in the parks that sell mangers, pine needles, fruit, fireworks, lights, decorations, anything you can think of to set up your very own nativity.

The pine needles are sold so you can place them on the floor. When your Christmas guest arrive, they step on the needles that give off a wonderful aroma of pine. This is especially wonderful if you have a dirt floor. We tired this at the mission home and many told me that they would try this when they got home. It was a Christmas to remember.
