Hello Again

Finally Elder Hall had time to send a group email. He even sent some pictures. Things are going well for Elder Hall and Elder Iyip. Baptisms are scheduled, other investigators are progressing, and they now have a family they are teaching.

Of course, Elder Hall has some words for us in celebration of the season of the birth of our Savior.

Subject: Hello Again

Hey Everyone!

Sorry that I have not been able to get these emails out as often since I’ve been in Sun City. I do it as often as I can.

So things are going well here with Elder Iyip! We are preparing to baptize Angela on the 26th which is exciting, and we might even be baptizing Frank on that day as well. We have a few more people to teach, including a family! One of our investigators, Daniel, who we’ve been teaching since very early November finally came to church yesterday, which is great!

There’s no snow but it’s starting to feel more like Christmas. I hope you all are as excited for Christmas as I am. The Christmas season is all bout love and sharing, it’s very important that we try to think of others and what we can do to help them, or put a smile on their face rather than thinking only of ourselves.

Now the main reason for the season is to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Matthew 1:21
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luke 2:7-11
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 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.

Hark! the herald Angels Sing

1. Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!
Joyful, all ye nations, rise;
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!

2. Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Ris’n with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die;
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!

I know that Christ was born to save all of us, let us always remember that and show our love for Him by loving others as he would have us.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week! And just in case I can’t email next week: Merry Christmas everyone! I love you all

Elder Hall
