Merry Christmas! 2011

Merry Christmas!

We have been celebrating this Christmas season thoughout the entire mission. This week, we visited each zone in the mission to do a Christmas devotional. The mission Christmas tour started in Shizuoka on Wednesday. The following day, we made a long trip to Matsumoto and over to Kanazawa. Friday, we were next door in the Meito chapel. On Christmas Eve, we finished in Gokiso. The time we spent together as a mission was enjoyed by all. It was so fun to visit the different zones and see the wonderful missionaries there. Many missionaries received packages from their loved ones. It was fun to see their excited faces! But, the best part of the trip was not just the presents received in packages, but through reflecting on the many blessings we enjoy!

Through sharing our testimonies, hearing and pondering the Christmas story, and recalling the blessings we have because of our Savior now, we were able to spend a fun, spiritual time together. Everyone was able to be edified and feel the true Christmas spirit. This is a very special time of year! Truly, there is something magical in the air. We are blessed to be in Japan sharing this message of Jesus Christ. We are blessed to know that our Savior was born and lived a life for us! We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! May the spirit of this wonderful holiday fill your hearts with warmth and joy! Let us ponder together on the wonderful blessing we enjoy because of that babe in manger. Posted are the pictures taken of the different zones! We hope you enjoy them!

Merry Christmas and a

Happy New Year!
