Visitors to the fourth annual "Journey to Bethlehem" at the First United Methodist Church in Monett on Sunday were greeted with a smiling baby Jesus, portrayed by Zella Zahn, the 9-month-old daughter of Carrie and Andrew Zahn, who stood in for the Holy Family.

The re-creation of the Biblical city of Bethlehem attracted 200 visitors on the first night and 105 on the second.
