Brasil Curitiba Christmas Mission Conference
Today we had a fantastic Christmas Mission Conference. When we first arrived we had everyone in the Chapel. It was the first time we had the opportunity to see all of the missionaries in one place at the same time. It was overwhelming. Tears filled our eyes to see this wonderful group of dedicated young men and women singing Christmas hymns and worshiping together. Wow! I will include a few more pictures from the conference. We had mini lessons in the morning and then a Christmas dinner fit for a king. After dinner we had a small gift exchange. Each missionary brought a $R5.00 gift and we formed a huge circle in the cultural hall. Pres. Cordon told a story about a family and each time he said right or left, the gifts were passed. It was very fun. We then reenacted the Nativity with lots of music, carols, and acting. This is a family tradition which was fun to share with the missionaries.
