Please remember the TRUE meaning of CHRISTmas. If you haven't PLLEEEASE watch "He is the gift".

Hello family and friends!!!
WOW this week was GREEEAT
on tuesday we had our zone conference where we learned about the "He is the Gift" initiative going on! And wow it has been so great talking about this new video. If you haven't watched it, please do! It will touch your heart and the Spirit will fill you with a deeper appreciation of the Savior if you let it! It sure did for me.

Anywho, We have had such a great week. We saw Darnell twice this week. And the lessons were FANTASTIC. Darnell's had some really rough times lately because his girlfriend, who's been struggling with some stuff. Anywho, Bro Punjack was able to come with us and was totally able to relate to Darnell and help him out. 
He told him. "When we do things our way, it'll never work out. Sometimes we get angry as the answer and try to just shove our way through something. Or we try to bring others to Christ by dragging them there. But when we humble ourselves enough to do the Lord's work His way, everything works out in the end. We will always be able to fall on our knees and pray to our Heavenly Father. We can pour out our hearts to Him. He's there, waiting for us to talk to Him. He's always there on the other side of the door. We just have to open it."

As he spoke the Spirit touched Darnell's heart, it was so clear that the Lord had sent Bro Punjack. It was so clear that the Lord was comforting His son. Darnell has been progressing sooo rapidly. He immediately applies the Gospel when he reads something or hears something. He is an experimenter! Every time he is told something he wants to prove it, and test it out! 
He has only noticed holiness and goodness as he's done so. He's beginning to realize how wonderful and good this church is. He thanked us so much for coming, and said he feels so much better when he sees us. Heavenly Father loves him so very much. He sends you and I as His representatives to show that love. What a privilege! 

I love you all. Thank you for your prayers, and for being so thoughtful and kind all of these years. Merry Christmas. Please remember the TRUE meaning of CHRISTmas. 
If you haven't PLLEEEASE watch He is the gift. And Discover what the Lord has intended for you to hear. Then Embrace it, let Christ into your soul and feel His love envelope you. Let His example change you, and do likewise as He would to your fellow men. 
And SHARE THE GIFT! This is the most important part. Sharing!!!! If you've seen the video, share it! 
The Lord's work is done His way. The Lord's servants the Prophet, Thomas S Monson and the 12 Apostles started this project. This might just be me, but I'm pretty sure it's inspired!!!
I testify as the Lord's Servant that Heavenly Promises are kept. I testify that Christ does Live and His Atonement is real. I know it because I have prayed and felt so much peace. I've felt Forgiveness.
I invite each of you to share the gift of Christmas, and share this video. It's touched my heart, and I know it will touch yours too.
 I pray, that you will feel the special Spirit of Christ's birth as you share this Christmas with others and serve. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Love yinz. Stay true to the Book in Blue!
