Whose Birthday Is It?

This week, we got to go to a Zone Conference with a member of the Seventy (translation for those who aren't up on their Mormon lingo: we had a meeting with a bunch of missionaries and a church leader). I loved it! One of my favorite parts was when we talked about an incredible vision Moses had, where he saw the universe and everything that God created. Through out this vision God calls him, "Moses, my son." Isn't it incredible that the Man who placed the stars and formed the mountains calls each of us son or daughter? And we have the privilege of calling him Father.
A missionary Christmas season is different than normal; so far I'm loving it! We get to focus on Christ and his coming. The other day, a woman told us that when she was growing up, her parents taught her that since we're celebrating Christ's birthday, he's the one that ought to get the presents. It's so true! When we focus on what we can give to Him, we can have a very merry Christmas!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
