Merry Christmas.. Feliz Navidad... Joyeux Noel!

 It’s the best time of the season and I’m so glad i get to experience it as a full time servant of my heavenly father! This year our president had every district have a song and share it with other people to brighten their day. We decided as a district to go to a near metro stop and sing all the Christmas hymns in the hymn book. NO we for sure do not have the best voices but luckily that doesn't matter. We really got to see people smile on peoples faces that were hustling to work. We even had some people stop and sing with us or take pictures with us! At all times we had two missionaries contacting people and giving out he is the gift cards. It was so great to spread the Christmas cheer in that way.
We had our zones training and Sister Arriaga and I gave a training. It was based of off commitments and how we can give better commitments with everyone we meet, teach, and even members. It went really well and it will be cool if that can really help our zone improve. We did two splits this week and one of the splits i went off the Montréal Island with some sisters and participated in their district activity. They went around door to door to some member’s house and non-members houses singing and passing out he is the gift card. It was really fun and everyone loved it here they thought that caroling was only in the movies! On Saturday we had our zones mission Christmas party with president and our branch Christmas party. they were both really great and always fun to share the spirit with each other. I would like to share some of the Christmas spirit with you. I feel the spirit so much when i think of my brother Jesus Christ that’s what this holiday is about anyways right! I am so thankful that for 18 months i have been able to wear his name and share and testify of another testament of Christ the Book of Mormon. In the book of Mormon 1nephi 11:12-22 it says

12 And it came to pass that he said unto me: Look! And I looked as if to look upon him, and I saw him not; for he had gone from before my presence.
 13 And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the great city of Jerusalem, and also other cities. And I beheld the city of Nazareth; and in the city of Nazareth I beheld a virgin, and she was exceedingly fair and white.
 14 And it came to pass that I saw the heavens open; and an angel came down and stood before me; and he said unto me: Nephi, what beholdest thou?
 15 And I said unto him: A virgin, most beautiful and fair above all other virgins.
 16 And he said unto me: Knowest thou the condescension of God?
 17 And I said unto him: I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things.
 18 And he said unto me: Behold, the virgin whom thou seest is the mother of the Son of God, after the manner of the flesh.
 19 And it came to pass that I beheld that she was carried away in the Spirit; and after she had been carried away in the Spirit for the space of a time the angel spake unto me, saying: Look!
 20 And I looked and beheld the virgin again, bearing a child in her arms.
 21 And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the Son of the Eternal Father! Knowest thou the meaning of the tree, which thy father saw?
 22 And I answered him, saying: Yea, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things.

I am so thankful for our Saviour Jesus Christ! I know that he lives and that through him we can return back to our Heavenly Father! I wish you the best Christmas full of love!
