On a considerably lighter note, the church has come out with a new Christmas video! From the sound of your emails, a lot of you have probably already seen it! It's called He is the Gift, and it can be found at christmas.mormon.org. It's amazing! You should all go watch it right now if you haven't already. I love it so much. It talks about how Jesus Christ was the first gift given to us and how we can discover, embrace, and share the gift! It's interesting because I never really thought that our Savior was something we could necessarily "give" to others, but He is! As we share our testimonies and help others see His light, we can truly give them the best gift that we have ever received.
I know that this is one of the best times of the year to spread the gospel! So many people talk about the "Spirit of Christmas." Really, that is the Holy Spirit that guides us to learn more of Jesus Christ. As missionaries, we just try to help people feel that Spirit, so they can be led and directed. We are at a time of the year where people are already feeling it! It's amazing, and we have seen so many doors open that were previously closed to us. It's been a week of miracles in that regard.
I hope you all have a wonderful week with many opportunities to "Share the Gift!"
P.S. We bought sparkling cider at Walmart the other day, and the cashier tried to card us. :) Good times.
