Christmas is on its way! I'm really excited! This week was good! I
have a new companion now, and I'm done with training! It's been really
great so far! Me and my companion have a lot in common and we've
gotten along really well so far!
Thanksgiving was really wonderful! We ate with a member family,
and then we played some board games and some sports at the church with
our new district!
Now that my trainer left, I've been in charge of the area and sort
of helping my new companion get to know it and everything! It's been
good! Something that we're going to be focusing a lot on is a program
launched by the Church called "He is the Gift". It focuses on Jesus
Christ being the true meaning of Christmas and how we should strive to
keep Him at the center of our thoughts this holiday season. There's a
really cool video on christmas.mormon.org that you all should check
out! It also has a bunch of different of our beliefs and its just a
I know that Christ truly is the reason for the season. And I know
that the gift of His Atonement is such a blessing for each of us. As
we strive to do His will, we will be blessed with comfort and peace.
The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and is the thing that
will bring us the most joy in this life and the next. I hope that we
can all remember Christ throughout this holiday season and throughout
our lives. Have a wonderful week!
