Okay, I know it’s not Christmas just yet. But it feels like it to me.
I absolutely love this time of year, I just feel so happy and it makes the mission even better than it already is!!
We saw one of our investigators, Matthew, this week! He’s been reading the Book of Mormon and said he would pray about baptism. Because of the close friendship he has with the members, I’m positive he will come to that decision 🙂 Yay!!
This week, we were instructed on the church’s #HeIstheGift initiative. It is way exciting to see what is going on this Christmas season!!
So for those of you who don’t know already, watch this video.
I LOVE it! Now why do I? Because normally when we people ask why we give presents on Christmas, we say because of the Three Wise Men who gave gifts at the Savior’s birth. But what this video points out is that that is not the case. The first gift given to all of us, and the reason behind Christmas, is the gift of our Father in Heaven to us, His son Jesus Christ! Because of Him, we can all live in peace. We can live in happiness. If we follow Him, we will have eternal life!
So, I invite you all to share this gift with everyone around you. Your friends, family, or anyone that just needs an uplifting message. Help them to Discover, Embrace, and #ShareTheGift!!
