Today the whole mission came to Portao for our annual Mission Christmas Conference.  We started with trainings from Sister Cordon and the President and then had practice breakout sessions.  The mission was treated to a wonderful Christmas dinner made by Irma Burnedette from Ponta Grossa.  We then reenacted Luke 2 with each zone either singing or acting a part.  After a gift exchange we returned to the chapel for a special musical number by Sister Muehlstein and a closing by President Cordon.  It was touching to be together and see all of our missionaries in one room.  We love them all.  Merry Christmas Curitiba!!
