#619 Bell Argentina Nativity

Acquired 2012

While gone for a week-end trip, I returned to a voice-mail message from Barbara and Roberto Salazar, from Turlock. They had attended my Nativity Open House last year, 2011. Upon my return phone call, I learned while Roberto was in Argentina this year for business, he saw this special small three-piece nativity set, liked it, and purchased it for me even though he didn't personally know me. This lovely couple called me and asked if they could bring it to me to be added to the collection. I was delighted. It was a joy to meet them, have them share their love for the Lord, and the blessing they received from the nativity collection. I was honored to receive their gift. The Mary and Joseph figurines are bells with clappers and Baby Jesus is on a manger of straw.
