On this Christmas Eve Sabbath, we remember not only the Savior’s birth but also His life of sacrifice and love. We can follow His example by sacrificing our time and talents in serving His children. A senior mission is like a tithing on our lives that we offer in thanks for the great blessings of light, truth, and redemption that the Savior gives us.
It won’t be like Christmas at home, but a mission Christmas can be one of your best Christmases ever. Missionaries still give and receive gifts and still decorate their apartments. But best of all, they share the gift of the gospel to both members and nonmembers. And they feel the true spirit of Christmas in a way that they’ll cherish for the rest of their lives. Christmas on a mission is truly a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
What would the Savior like more for Christmas than having you serve His children? And now more than ever His children need the strength senior missionaries can bring to the world. Christmas is an ideal time to begin preparing for the mission you’ve been planning to serve.
