Time for Christmas!

 One of the highlights of our time here has been attending the sealing of two elders who served in our mission. 
To the left is Elder Angulo and his new bride and below is Elder Sandoval and his new bride.
 We are grateful for the faith of these young men  and their desire to have an eternal family. It is only in the temples that families can be sealed together for time and all eternity.  
 These elders have worked hard this past month to earn their 8/4/2 certificates.  Great job elders!!!!
It is Christmas time in the Selva!!!
 Our first Christmas stop was the first week of December in Iquitos.  Traveling during the holidays becomes very difficult here in Lima so all of our traveling has to be completed by the 15th of December.  These forty six missionaries were excited to see us.     
 Our celebrating includes having lunch together, singing songs of the season, playing a few games and enjoying a devotional together.
Each receives a small package of goodies and a CD to share with their investigators that recounts the life of our Savior. 
Let us not forget, that He is the reason for this joyeous season!!!! 
These next few photos are for those moms and dads who have  sons and daughters serving in our mission.  We want you to know that we love them and they are happy serving the Lord.  

 Our sisters are a great blessing to the mission.  The love of the Lord radiates from them. 
 Songs of the season.  I know some mom encouraged this missionary to
keep practicing. 

Game time!!

Let the fun begin!!!
