Serving on Monkey Mountain and Visiting Buddha Mountain

Hello!
Recently I have been focusing a lot on the nature of service and how charity is the pure love of Christ.  Our mission, starting December 1st, is doing the church wide Light the World campaign, that focuses on serving others.  In Alma 34:28 it says:

“28 And now behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all; for after ye have done all these things, if ye turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those who stand in need—I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, behold, your prayer is vain, and availeth you nothing, and ye are as hypocrites who do deny the faith.”

This scripture draws the correlation between prayer and serving Heavenly Father.  As we constantly stand in need of help from our Heavenly Father, we need to be consistently looking outwards to serve, and then, only then are we able to receive the full extent of the blessings that are in store for us.  I am so excited to see how we can reflect our Light outward in this up and coming Christmas season, allowing many more to feel the power of the Light of Christ.  

Also, I just have to say, I have the best mission in the world!  No other place are the people so nice and the culture so rich with history.  We went and visited FoGuangShan, or Buddha mountain last week with a member named Charles.  Just a giant Buddha on a mountain.   Oh and how can we forget the greatness of Costco.  Churros, chocolate muffins, and the ever so reliable classic $1.50 hotdog and drink!  

Light the World!
