Well my English speaking friends,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVAN EPPERSON!!
How is life?
The Christmas season is coming to a close, yet again, I hope you are all prepared. As a missionary, well I don't really have to worry about much. I only worry about this,
LUKE 2:8 -148 - And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 - And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 - And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 - For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 - And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 - And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 - Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Remember this on Saturday. Merry Christmas.
Oh this last week on Friday, we were visting with a member to get them to go to the Ward Party, and for some reason, I was talking about something to get them to go and I let it slip that it was my birthday on Saturday, and so then at the Party they told everyone and sang Happy Birthday.
Ok I have 3 scriptures for you, Mosiah 5:8-9
(Okay, I looked 'em up and will print them here--And under this head ye are made afree, and there is bno other head whereby ye can be made free. There is no other cname given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, I would that ye should dtake upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.
And it shall come to pass that whosoever doeth this shall be found at the right hand of God, for he shall know the name by which he is called; for he shall be called by the name of Christ.)
Jacob 1:7 Wherefore we labored diligently among our people, that we might persuade them to acome unto Christ, and partake of the goodness of God, that they might enter into his brest, lest by any means he should swear in his wrath they should not center in, as in the dprovocation in the days of temptation while the children of Israel were in the ewilderness.
2 Nephi 25:26 (And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we bprophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our cchildren may know to what source they may look for a dremission of their sins.)
They are pretty good, I suggest that you look them up.
Man this last week, Sunday to Friday, it rained. we thought it would stop on Friday, but at about 4 it started again. It is really hard to work in the rain, even with an umbrella. No one is on the street, and it´s almost impossible to get into someone´s house when you are soaking wet. So that´s what happened this week.
Oh on Saturday and family invited us over for Dinner and Cake. It was pretty cool.
I hope you are all having a great Christmas season. Remember your Savior and everything He has done for you, without His Birth, we wouldn’t have this holiday, so be grateful to Him.
Pray to your Heavenly Father and thank Him for everything. I Love you all.
I am Elder Richardson, man of 20 years, and I end mine epistle, amen
