I hope this email finds you all happy, healthy, and filled with the Christ(mas) spirit. What a glorious time of year.
“But it came to pass in the ninetieth year of the reign of the judges, there were great signs given unto the people, and wonders; and the words of the prophets began to be fulfilled.
And angels did appear unto men, wise men, and did declare unto them glad tidings of great joy; thus in this year the scriptures began to be fulfilled.”
Many people didn’t believe the signs and mocked those that did. Nephi prays for the suffering believers, and the voice of the Lord brings them these words of peace:
“Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world, to show unto the world that I will fulfil all that which I have caused to be spoken by the mouth of my holy prophets.
Behold, I come unto my own, to fulfil all things which I have made known unto the children of men from the foundation of the world, and to do the will, both of the Father and of the Son—of the Father because of me, and of the Son because of my flesh. And behold, the time is at hand, and this night shall the sign be given.”
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the source of true happiness and peace in this life, and in the life to come. This is Christ’s Church reestablished on the Earth. The Book of Mormon is another, living witness of Him and the way to come closer to Him. The gospel is true! It is a sacred privilege to be a messenger of his gospel at this special time.
This week, Carlos, Sister Olander and I’s investigator will be baptized. He is so prepared. The most amazing moments for me have been to see the change the gospel brings into people’s lives, and to see those who he has clearly prepared to receive Him. E um milagre.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! I am thinking and praying for you everyday. FEliz Natal from Mozambique!
“Has this toothbrush been approved by the American Dental Association? …can you please find out?” I will be thinking about you all, and Kevin McCallister this Christmas.
