In previous blogs from this year, highlights of Mission history for 2012 have been noted. What we would like to do today is add a few more to wrap up the year.
Our last post was to congratulate Bishop Persico as he took office as tenth Bishop of Erie on Oct. 1.
Five days later, on Oct. 6th, the Erie Mission Office ran its second Road Rally, similar to TV”s Amazing Race, a fund raiser for the Misión de Amistad. It was actually back by popular demand. The first Road Rally generated such fun and enthusiasm, that everyone was looking forward to the next one.The theme for the 2012 rally was The Hunt for History and clues reflected Erie’s historical spots. Participation was very good and the proceeds did exceed last year’s. Thanks to all who organized it and participated in it among them KimLytle and Sharon Davenport pictured above.

As the end of October appears on the calendar , the girls at the Nueva Vida look forward to the fun and games of the Halloween celebration. Bobbing for apples, getting into costume to parade around the block, eating hot dog "mummies" and Halloween cake are all part of the fun.
Missionaries for ten days.
