We Have a Gift for You!

Happy December! Who´s excited for Christmas? I know I am!

You may have noticed some posts on my Facebook account. Here in the mission, we're going big to celebrate Christmas. We're inviting everyone to learn more about Jesus Christ and why we celebrate His birth.

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
La Navidad- Christmas. As in, "Every year on Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World."
Alegrarse- Be happy/Rejoice. As in, "Rejoice! Thanks to our Savior, we can be healed from sin, pain, and sadness!"
Angeles- Angels. As in, "The birth of Jesus Christ was such an anticipated event, that the prophets before Him testified and prophesied about it. An angel announced it to the shepherds in the fields, and choruses of angels accompanied him to rejoice."

If you haven't checked out yet this year, do it! We're sharing it with everyone. The video, A Savior is Born, is beautiful.

We shared it with one woman and asked her what caught her attention about the video. She was interested in how it said that we can be born again. She asked us what is required to be born again. We got to explain a little bit about how the Savior has provided us with the opportunity to repent and be baptized so that we can always have His Spirit to guide us. She wants to get baptized and be born again.

Here in the Pueblo though, there are a lot of people who don't have internet or a DVD player, so we haven't been able to show them the video. Instead, we read the scriptures that the youth in the video cite. It's been a special week being able to share the prophesies and announcement of Christ's birth with everyone. We feel like the Heavenly Hosts who sang at His birth as we go around telling everyone,

"We have a gift for you! A Savior is born, and thanks to Him, you can be happier than ever before. Do you want to discover why?"

With one woman we met last week, we couldn't share the video, so we read the scriptures from the video. We asked her, "why do you think we celebrate Christ's birth so much?" She explained to us exactly the message we share- that He heals us. She then told us that she had recently seen a baptism in Colonia Juarez and she wants to start coming to church and be baptized. It was a sweet experience.

Speaking of Colonia Juarez, I went there this week. I didn't bring my camera though...sorry...
Colonia Juarez is beautiful. The smallest temple in the world is there, and it is beautiful. We went to help with a stake activity. It's a really cool place, it has a special Spirit. I hope I can go back sometime. :)

Apologies for the lack of photos. I'll try to take some this week. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Share the message of Christ's birth with someone! And watch the video!
¡Feliz Navidad!
