The True Meaning of Christmas


          Wow, one week til' Christmas! This year I will be looking forward to tamales, fireworks, and christmas songs in spanish to celebrate the holidays. This week Hermana Jimenez contacted a lot of the members to introduce us to their neighbors and friends. President wants us to work with the members more than just contact random people, but we did a little of both. It actually is fun contacting in Mulua because everyone is super friendly and everyone talks to you. It seems to be even more happy and bright during the holiday season. Well the good thing about Mulua is that there arent as many people who light fireworks compared to Mazate. Today we had our annual Christmas activity with the whole mission and Mission President and his family. The mission Presidents wife even made cookies for each missionary! One of the blessings of this last Christmas in the mission is that I really am focusing and pondering on the true meaning of Christmas and life. We all really do have a purpose and it is so simple... To return again to be with our families. We have our whole life to really demonstrate to Heavenly Father if we want to recieve the blessing of eternal life through the way we react to our daily challenges and trials. But in the end, everything is simple... Jesus Christ loves us. Does he know we love him? Happy holidays and Feliz Navidad from Guatemala.
