Merry Christmas to each of you from all of us in the Argentina Neuquén Mission.
Christmas is celebrated here very much like it is all over the world.
We were able to attend our Ward Christmas party. We had a live Nativity!
The music was beautiful.
There was a power point presentation about the birth of the Savior.
A member of the ward had drawn a large mural of Bethlehem to help us remember that first Christmas.
There were even sheep in the fields!
It was a beautiful evening and a time to remember the birth of our Savior.
Our friend from the ward made a Christmas stocking for us to have for our first Christmas in Argentina.
On Sunday we finished the last interviews with the missionaries. There were children at the Stake Center practicing for the program later that evening.
The program was in the square in downtown Neuquén.
The Children were trying hard to be patient while they waited for the program to get started.
What an amazing star!
The missionaries were there and were involved in many ways.
Some were talking with Ward members.
Some went out to the street to invite people to come and join us.

The missionaries enjoyed being involved in the program and just being together.
Earlier in the week we had interviews at Trelew. This stable scene was all ready for the Ward Christmas party the next day and was a perfect place for a picture.
When we saw the Christmas Tree after interviews in Olivia Caleta everyone gathered for a picture to wish you a Merry Christmas.
It was so fun to see the Christmas Tree in the foyer of our church.
It is even more wonderful to see it with this beautiful family in front of it. This is the newest member of the ward! This is what the gospel is all about…to bless ALL the families of the Earth.
Merry Christmas to you and your families!
