What a wonderful day we had yesterday...
Our morning devotional was Special...
We talked about the 3 greatest gifts that we have each been given
The Book of Mormon/restored Gospel
The Holy Ghost
The Savior, Jesus Christ.
We had five of our missionaries give their unbelievable
stories of conversion and love for the Book of Mormon.
Elder Hurley played and sang an original song he wrote
about 2 Nephi 4.
I spoke on the Holy Ghost
We had Oh that I were an Angel
We had Elder Olivares play a medley on the piano
of Sacred Christmas songs.
We had "How can I be" sung by Elder Bulmini
with a slide show of all our missionaries
President Turk spoke on the Savior.
We had "One Solitary Life" read with music
in the background...
Then we moved to the Cultural Hall.
Our 1800 Celebration was fantastic
We gathered in a circle
We sang "We are as the Army of Helaman"
We had a couple of members share how their lives had been changed
forever because of the missionary work that has taken place this last year.
We knelt and thanked our Heavenly Father for His help
and called upon the powers of Heaven to move us forward with our new goals.
We then ate Cake and took pictures.
They all got their gifts of new ties and scarves for the show.
We went to Lunch and then went to the Institute for our practice.
Our afternoon practice for the show went smoothly
And the Christmas Spectacular Program in the Plaza
was a huge success!
Fireworks and all.
We will do it all over again on Thursday
with the second half of the mission.
Congratulations to our Missionaries on all their successes.
