he parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the scene of a Live Nativity Drive-Thru on Saturday evening, Dec. 11, at 2700 Ensign Drive in Platte City. Nine scenes featured live animals and commemorated the major Biblical events that tell the story of the Savior. It was the second year for the event, which has proven to be very popular. Some of the scenes depicted were the Prophet Isaiah writing the prophecies foretelling the Savior’s birth; the visit of the Angel Gabriel to Mary; Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem; the shepherds seeing a new star; the Wise Men seeking Jesus; and the baby Jesus in the stable with Mary and Joseph. Members of the public viewed the scenes without leaving their vehicles.
