Merry Christmas

Maayong Pasko! Merry Christmas!🎄

Can I just start off by saying how much I love love love Christmas? Especially as a missionary. New news; I've been transferred and this will most likely be my last area. I am back in Mandaue (heart of the city) right where I started. My comp is Sister Whitaker and we were together in the MTC and will be going home together. So, to say we have been killin' is here is an understatement. Life is good!

I love Christmas, but it is empty without Christ. This morning we visited nanay Himidina, a recent convert. Our lesson with her was very simple. We had little presents for her granddaughter and she was so excited. We asked them what their plans are for Christmas. And they don't have any because they don't have any money. Mandaue is the poorest part of our mission. There are a lot of 'squatters' (people who just pop up a little shack where ever). But in this lesson we just shared from Luke 2. The spirit was so strong, but simple. This nanay literally has nothing, but is just so so so grateful to have a Saviour, grateful to be a member of the church and all of God's tender mercies. It sure made me embarrassed for all the times I have complained, been homesick, or any other small problems in my life. But, when we focus on Christ all of this goes away.

Christ's life was so simple. He was born in a manger, no glitter and lights. That is how our lives should be, and Christmas. Our hearts should simply be centered on CHRIST this CHRISTmas.

2 Nephi 19:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! LOVE YOU ALL!
