He is the Gift

Dear Family and Friends,

This week has been incredible. As missionaries- and members, we have the opportunity to pass out "He is the Gift" pass a long cards.
I am sure you have all seen this beautiful video by now. It has really opened my eyes what Christmas is really about. 
Right now in my personal studies I just finished reading 3 Nephi. I love 3 Nephi. A verse that really stood out to me this week was in 3 Nephi 17:16-17 "And after this manner do they bear record; The eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father: And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father." Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ love us so much. The people who heard Jesus praying for them could not even conceive of the joy they felt! I hope all of you can feel the incredible love He has for each and every one of you. HE IS THE GIFT!!! 

We were able to meet so many amazing people this week. I am so excited to teach them Heavenly Father's gospel, and plan for them. 

One day as we were out tracting we knocked on the door of a man who stepped on everything I have believed my whole life. It really shook me up for a few hours. During testimony meeting the next day at church I had an overwhelming feeling of love. As everybody testified of Christ the spirit was so strong. Nothing on this earth can ever make me deny what I know to be true. I cannot deny these feelings that I have. I am so grateful to have this knowledge of God's plan for me and my family. This is the Church of Jesus Christ. He is at the head of His church!! 

I hope you all are "sharing the gift" in your own way this Christmas season. 

I love you!! 

Love, Sister Furniss
