CHRISTMAS CONFERENCE - Angeles, Mabalacat, Camiling, Paniqui, Sta. Ignacia, Tarlac

Our 2nd Christmas Zone Conference was on December 24th for the Tarlac side of the mission.  See the description in the Cabanatuan side conference.  This tells all about the order of activity that took place.  After our opening session in the morning, lunch time gave opportunity for missionaries to enjoy some time to socialize.  A favorite reason for every missionary to gather.  The Garcia family catered another delicious luncheon.  
How we love and appreciate them.

Our birthday group was larger on Tarlac side.
Here is our SOE crowd for Tarlac.  I can't see the blue flag but one missionary companionship received a BW (baptize weekly) flag.

Here is a group of CLS certificate recipients.
Next comes the big event - Angeles Tree Decoration

Angeles made Santa's with each missionary's picture.

Camiling zone had a different idea for an ornament.  It was a gift that opened up and contained personalized notes from each missionary to President and Sister Clark.  It also included many of the mission activities and programs from the past year.  It was a great gift and a beautiful expression of appreciation.

Paniqui zone prepared a battery operated illuminating star to top the tree.  It stood proudly to shine brightly on our Angeles tree.  

Mabalacat zone also had an idea to top the tree brightly.  

Santa Ignacia zone found the perfect ornaments and strung them to a jump rope. 

Tarlac zone designed a customized illuminated ornament.  Quite original eye catching with flash and pazzaz.  #Lighttheworld

The finished product.

Gift bags and mission pouch were delivered at the end make for a very Merry Christmas.

See Cabanatuan side to see how we finished our wonderful Christmas celebration together.
