It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas! - December 9, 2013

We got snow the other day and it looks and feels like it will stay for a good while, maybe through the Spring!

This week was a little slower, but great! I am finally getting into the Christmas Spirit for real after listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir featuring David Archuleta CD another missionary had and the 2013 Christmas Devotional yesterday.

Look to Christ, drive safely, and follow the counsel of Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve:
"The key is that you be inspired of God, that you ask Him for direction and then go and do as the Spirit prompts you. When members view the work of salvation as their responsibility alone, it can be intimidating. When they view it as an invitation to follow the Lord in bringing souls unto Him to be taught by the full-time elders and sisters, it is inspiring, invigorating, and uplifting.

We are not asking everyone to do everything. We are simply asking all members to pray, knowing that if every member, young and old, will reach out to just “one” between now and Christmas, millions will feel the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a wonderful gift to the Savior" (emphasis added, Ensign, Nov 2013, pp 44-45).
