Week 57 ......... Christmas number two!!!!!!!

Well the time has come. It's once again the Monday before Christmas and we are preparing to skype with our families, my last time in the mission, and to share lots of cookies with all our friends here in Ysapy.

We sang Christmas carols in the community center here in Capiata, and the program was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 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. 

Much love,
