Lantana Ward Christmas Party Dec 16th, 2016

Laura Barlow's vision and determination inspired an entire ward to come together to set up and then enjoy a beautiful Betlehem scenery. More than 475 people came this evening to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The church's gym was transformed into a Betlehem Market. At the entrance, people paid their taxes by donating cans of food for the needy. Then, they walked through a textiles shop in case they needed appropriate attire. The census was signed next, and money was given to each person so that they could shop in the market. Before entering the market, they had to have their photo taken at the Pharisee's Photo Booth. Upon entering the market, the Wiseman were selling gold, frankincense, and mur. Shops throughout the market provided toys, jewelry, and ornaments while others had plenty of delicious food. Patrons could even partake of water at the well!

Everyone got into the Spirit of Christmas and dressed appropriately for the occasion...

Here is in 60 seconds how things went down ...

One of the most beautiful moments came when these two lovely sisters gave a unforgettable rendition of "Mary Did You Know"
