This week has been fantastic! However with Skype and the fact that today is a public holiday I am emailing in a ridiculously busy apple store here on Christmas so I'll keep this short and fill in more next week.
But this week I'll just leave a Christmas message that we've been sharing lately. John 3:16 tells us: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Every year we give gifts for Christmas but we've been asking people, What gift will you give back to Christ this year. My favorite answer was "their will". Just something to think about...
Hope you have a Merry Christmas! I'll write more next week! Add oil!
Fun fact 1: Elder Ashton was able to Skype home with his parents and brother in Colorado on Christmas Eve (Denver time), but it was already Christmas morning in Hong Kong.
Fun fact 2: He was in wonderful spirits, having a great Christmas. He was able to spend just about an hour on Skype with us, but we did get disconnected three times.
You can email Elder Ashton at email@example.com
If you would like to send him regular mail:
