December 2012 - BAGUIO, SAN FERNANDO LA UNION & AGOO Tri-Zone Conference

This eagle carved from stone is an amazing sight on the way to Baguio. It is located
northeast of Agoo as we turn onto Jose B. Nisperos highway.  The highway is named
after the first Asian/Filipino to be awarded the Medal of Honor in 1922; he was a private
in the U.S. Army Philippine Scouts Division and fought in the Philippine-American War.

           The missionaries are prepared for a feast.... Elder Wood is thinking about seconds!

                                          There was even a salad bar, which we all loved.

       Elder Germaine & Sisters Leuluai & Montojo            Definitely plenty of food for
        partake of the popular chocolate fountain                  seconds, Elder Wood!

               Yes, even President and I got to eat          It was fun visiting with the sisters

December 2012 - DAGUPAN, MANGALDAN & LINGAYEN Tri-Zone Conference

On the way to tri-zone conference in Dagupan we drove behind this
jeepney completely loaded down.  Why make two trips when one will do?

             Sister Gina (front) was responsible for the wonderful food and beautiful decorations

                A few of our senior missionary couples       

           The elders are busy watching "My Three Words" as the sisters take their turn in line

       President Monahan loves visiting with the missionaries while Sister Monahan takes pictures

                   The missionaries are happy to be together...especially when there is food

                            Our senior couples:                          The chocolate fountain was
              The Dinkels, Mortimers and Fullmers                          a big hit

             We sang "Happy Birthday" and "Maligayen Bati" to all the missionaries with
                  birthdays in the months of October, November and December, then the
                sisters got to pick from the birthday box while the elders waited patiently.

December 2012 - URDANETA, ROSALES & BAYAMBANG Tri-Zone Conference

                 Elders from Rosales Zone arrived early for tri-zone conference in Urdaneta

                               We all enjoyed a festive Christmas luncheon....YUM!

               Why are the elders facing away from the banquet table? They are watching the
            Baguio Mission video, "My Three Words," being shown on the screen in the chapel

                                                          Happy missionaries!!
