Howdy from Texas! This week has been a very great week. I am so excited for Christmas this next week! I love this Christmas season in being able to remember the matchless gift that our Heavenly Father has given us.
My ponderize scripture for this next week will be, John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. I loved Elder Bednar's talk that he gave at the Christmas devotional about how our Savior was literally the life and the light of the world. I am so very thankful to have the Savior in my life. He has felt all of our pains and our weaknesses, our trials and our challenges, and through his light and grace, we can overcome all things. I love the spirit that I feel at this time of year because of the infinite love that our Savior has for us.
This past week has been really special being able to share the new Christmas video and helping others come unto Christ this Christmas season. I am so very thankful for this season to have hearts softened for the message of the restoration and of the gospel. Being able to share the gift of the message of the restoration helps others feel of the light and love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We also had our last district meeting for the transfer this past Wednesday. I love the elders in our district! I have loved being able to serve with them and helping each other in the work. I will also be staying in the 10th Ward and the SA South Zone for 7 more weeks! I am so excited to be able to stay here in this area and to help others come unto Christ.
This past Sunday was very special as well. We were able to have our Christmas program in church. We sang many different Christmas songs that brought the spirit very strong into the meeting. I am so very thankful for the opportunity to go to church and to be spiritually renewed and rejuvenated for the coming week. I am so very thankful for this gospel. It is truly the way for us to return to our Heavenly Father again someday. I know that my Savior lives. He is my Redeemer and loves us all so
very much. I know as we do all we can to follow Him and endure to the end, we will receive a fullness of joy in our Heavenly Father’s kingdom.
