O Come Let Us Adore Him!

One of the great pleasures on our mission is to meet wonderful Church leaders on our stakes, districts, wards and branches.  Each December we look forward to thanking them at our holiday event with dinner and entertainment.  We were privileged this year to have Elder and Sister Garrett from Manila join us as well.  Elder Garrett is our Area Mental Health Adviser.  His wife is a beautiful harpist.  They graciously accepted our invitation and did we ever benefit greatly with their presence! Stake and district presidents and their wives from throughout the mission came.  Dinner was delicious but the best part of the evening came when our missionaries sang, Elder Garrett narrated and Sister Garrett performed beautiful harp music.  Many of our guests had never heard or had seen a harp before.  With the Philippines so humid, it isn't an instrument commonly used.  It was a hit!  

Stake and District Presidents, their wives, the Garrett's and the Whiting's join us at the 
mission home for holiday cheer.
Our performing missionaries wait "off stage" to perform Christmas music for our guests.
They are posed on the landing at the top of the stairway.

Live performance.  The missionaries sang like the angels they are.
The combination of voice, harp and piano was heavenly.     

Marvelous Missionaries who serve and sing with a smile!

Our two non-harpist Assistants pose with Sister Garrett's harp. These are wonderful
young men who will soon be finishing their mission service.
                          Salamat po!
