Fort Christmas--Cracker Christmas Festival--December 6, 2014

Elder and Sister Bean dressed in their pioneer attire at the Cracker Christmas Festival. There were pioneer demonstrators at the festival so we brought the mission booth and a replica of a Mormon Pioneer Handcart that we borrowed from the Youth and Family Camp . We used the Florida Orlando Mission truck to pick up the handcart from the Church Family Camp--when we arrived at the camp we ran into a major problem! The lock on the gate would not open so we could not drive in to pick up the Handcart.. Using creative thinking we backed the truck up to the locked gate with tail down, walked the 200 yards to get the handcart out of storage, pulled the cart to the locked gate, then pushed and pulled with all our might to get it over the gate into the truck bed. We did it, it fit, we tied it down, and we were good to go!
The children loved the handcart rides.

Elders Willard, King, Gottfredson, and Walker with Sisters Murphy and Lewis served at the festival--over 100 people contacted,with referrals, referrals, referrals.

Sisters Pierce, Muhlstien, and Domato--with pioneer spirit talked to the people at the festival about Family History and the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

At the end of the day. . . ..
