The MTC Presidency asked us all to send an email to our families explaining what Christmans means to us and our testimonies about the Saviour.
Christmas in the MTC has been interesting. The gifts and presents have been kept to a minimum, the caroling and overabundance of food still exists but in a different way. Although things are different, the spirit is still the same. That Christmas spirit once seemed different that the Holy Ghost, but now I realize that they are one and the same. The Holy Ghost testifies of truth so why would it not testify of the birth of the Savior of the world. I know that Jesus died for us to save us from our sins, grief and pain. All he asks of us is to come unto him. How great a time this is! We have been given a gift; all we have to do is use it. I know why I'm out here. It's to share this gift with others and to bring others to the knowledge that through Christ we can all be saved and live, grow and progress. I know that this is true. I love you all. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
