We sang Christmas carols in the community center here in Capiata, and the program was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
beautiful. the director read the nativity story from the bible in
between songs, and before our last song, Come all ye Faithful, he played
the video on christmas.mormon.org and the we sang and it was sooooo beautiful. Then on Saturday
we went to a local hospital and sang to the children and their
families, and then talked to them a little bit. It was fun. At the end,
our whole zone got together in the lobby, and started singing from
there, so we started singing and one of the nurses came around and took
us to the nativity scene, and then a bunch of nurses and people came and
sang with us. It was really cool. and we could feel the spirit with
these people. It was a very good experience.
This week were going to bake cookies, and give them out, and spend the evening on Christmas Eve with a part member family in our branch. It should be fun.
This Christmas, I want to invite all of you to remember why we have Christmas. It's not to celebrate winter, or give gifts, or to have parties or drink hot cocoa, or to hope Santa will come or any other typical traditions such as these. We have Christmas, because we have a savior Jesus Christ. who was born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, and because he was born we have the hope of having an eternal life with our families and our father in heaven, even, God. I am so thankful for the simple yet loving gift of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I know he lives, I know he came to earth, and I know he paid the price of our sins so that we can all repent and live again for eternity.
I invite you all to watch the above listed video, and ponder what it means, and ask God if you have a savior and if he is Jesus Christ. And then do something with that knowledge.
I love each one of you, and hope you all have a very wonderful Christmas.
