Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

"Excitement is in the air as we anticipate giving and receiving gifts.  
Gifts come in all sizes and shapes, but it seems that the best gifts are those that can't be wrapped:  gifts of service, family, faith, and testimony."

This year we visited each zone and shared a Christmas devotional focused on service and the gifts that we can give our Savior.  
For many of our missionaries, it is their first Christmas away from home.
They are being stretched and molded spiritually as they decide every morning to get up and do the Lord's will as representatives of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The gift of self...

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Our missionaries are giving their hearts...
...their hearts are being molded, softened, and changed! 
We LOVE them all!!
