2016-12-21 Manila Mission Manila Christmas Party

We had a wonderful Christmas Party the week before Christmas.  We had all the missionaries in Manila gather at the stake center by the office.  We spend the day together playing team games, working on service projects, eating a delicious feast that included LECHON, watching the missionaries perform the Christmas Nativity, watching an inspirational Christmas movie, "The Fourth Wiseman" and hearing some final words by Sister and President Ostler.  It was such a wonderful time together.

 A fun surprise was when Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elves appeared after the games and singing.

  Caleb wore the "sloth sweater" his older brother, Daniel, gave him for Christmas.

This is a group that really deserves special presents from Santa!!! The Senior Missionaries and assistants are truly angels sent from heaven to Manila!  How we love and appreciate them!

Enthusiasm, willingness, focus, hard work, "get it done, loving, wonderful....the Porteouses!
