He is the Gift!- December 1, 2014

Hey everyone!

HAPPY DECEMBER! Yay! I set a goal that I would wait until December 1st to start celebrating Christmas. Today I am going to open my Christmas package, write Christmas cards to RCs and investigators, and members, decorate our apartment and start listening to Christmas music! YAYAAYYAYAY. 

The other day we received some training from President Day. The Brethern want us to go crazy on sharing this video called "He is the Gift" below is a link:

Everyone should watch it right now, and then post it on your FB wall or your twitter or your whatever. Share it during visiting and home teaching, share it at church, share it with a random stranger. 
Missionary planning meetings

Why do we celebrate Christmas? Why do we give and receive gifts? It's to remember and celebrate the greatest gift of them all! The gift that God gave us--Jesus Christ.

The other day Sister Wu and I were at a park and we contacted a mother watching over her little boy. We asked her if we could show her a video on her phone and she said okay. After she watched the video we asked her how she felt and she said she felt good and wanted to learn more about Jesus Christ. We then began to show her the Book of Mormon and how Christ knows her every trial and every happy moment and that she can rely on His gospel to help her. She accepted the book and even agreed to meet with us again next week. 

The Gospel is for everyone. I testify that we all have a Savior. We all have a perfect example. We all have this person, who knows every pain, every happy moment, every little detail of our life. It only makes sense to trust Him, to trust this Gospel. 

 11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions andtemptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilledwhich saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses ofhis people.
 12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bandsof death which bind his people; and he will take upon him theirinfirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according tothe flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succorhis people according to their infirmities.

I know that the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and  can change lives. I see it every day in the lives of others and my own. I invite everyone to read the Book of Mormon and try its teachings out. They're true. 
I love playing with kids.  Especially Jenga!!!

Love, Sister Tracy
