¡Mbaishapa!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
.
Right now, I am serving with a new missionary who just arrived from his home country – Canada.  As the temperature drops back home in the states, it rises higher and higher here.  Christmas in Paraguay is much like the 4th of July in the states.  Hot, with a lot of people cooking meat and a lot of drinking.
.
I’ve reflected quite a bit during this holiday season about the Savior and everything that he did for me and all of the world.  A few days ago, I was studying a scripture from a book of scripture that testifies and teaches of the Savior along with the Holy Bible called the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.  In it a prophet of Christ who lived in the American Continent several centuries ago received counsel from the Lord.  He wrote the following:
.
Ether 12:27  And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.
.
With the Lord’s help, and through the faith that we show in him by keeping his commandments, our weaknesses are made strong.  I think of my weakness in speaking the language and am grateful for the help that I have received from the Lord in learning Spanish and being able to communicate with the people here in Paraguay.  It doesn’t matter what are challenge or weakness be, we can be made strong through the redeeming power of Christ.
.
I love the Savior and am grateful for the blessing I have to share his gospel to everyone here in Paraguay.
.
Happy new years to everyone!  I love you all!
