Celebrate the Reason for the Season

At our recent New Jersey Morristown Missionary Christmas gathering, one speaker told a story about two young missionaries serving in Canada who prayerfully planned their daily schedule. They planned to visit a family after 4 p.m. but when they arrived the family wasn't home. One young missionary was impressed to cross the street and knock at the door of an abandoned house. No one answered the door but that young elder felt impressed that someone there needed him. They went around to the backyard. No one was there. Then they saw the garage door ajar. As they lifted the garage door, they noticed fresh blood. A muffled voice cried out for help. Inside the garage lay a homeless man who was bleeding to death. The old man had drug himself inside the garage for protection from the elements and for a place to die.

As the young missionaries thought about their prayers that morning and planned their day's schedule, they were prompted by the Holy Ghost to be at the right place and at the right time.

Our wish for you today is that you will find a quiet moment to prepare to be at the right place at the right time when our Savior, Jesus Christ, comes again.

And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. -Mark 4:9

As full-time missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ, we have been called and set apart to....."warn, expound, exhort, and teach, and invite all to come unto Christ." -Doctrine & Covenants 20:59

God is our Father. Jesus is the Christ. The Holy Ghost will guide and comfort you....if you will listen and come unto Christ.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
