Leadership Training and our Christmas Celebration

What a fabulous December we have had!!!
It is our  Leadership Training month and we added in our Christmas Celebration.
We began in Tepic and joined together the Tepic, Vallarta and Santiago zones for a wonderfully fun day together.

We began with our leadership training with our district leaders, zone leaders and sister training leaders, while their companions went on divisions.   We followed up again with themes from our interview month - President focused on Integrity, the assistants on Discipline and sister Clayton's motto - Today is the Day!
We do not need to do More... we simply must do what we are doing, Better!

Then, we joined all together for our Christmas Celebration.
These pictures just do not do justice to how much fun we had together.  These missionaries prepared darling skits, some were funny and some were beautiful, all based around some of our favorite Christmas music.
We had a delicious Christmas dinner and a yummy dessert, we had a gift exchange and President and I brought Christmas packages, cards and letters from family and friends. We sang Christmas carols, and President read the Christmas Story from Luke 2.
We also were able to take care of our annual flu shots to boot. ;/

It was good to be together to celebrate our Savior Jesus Christ, His humble birth, His perfect life and His Endless and Eternal gift to us.

Next was our Leadership Training and Christmas Celebration with the 3 Guadalajara Zones - Union, Independencia and Lomas.

Getting ready for skits :)

Gift exchange

These sweethearts gave President
and I beautiful gifts.  
Thank you, thank you!

The ordeal we ALWAYS go through to take pictures!

And last, but not least, we met in Manzanillo for our
final Leadership Training and Christmas Celebration
with our Manzanillo, Colima, and Guzman Zones.
#What Fun!!!
