Hope of Israel

Hope of Israel, Zion's army,
Children of the promised day,
See, the Chieftain signals onward,
And the battle's in array!

Hope of Israel, rise in might
With the sword of truth and right;
Sound the war-cry, "Watch and pray!"
Vanquish ev'ry foe today.

Hello everyone!! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!! :) Christmas Is in two days!! can you believe that?! being out in the mission field time is all blended together haha so when I realized that this morning I was like  "WHAT?!" hahaha it was pretty funny :) anyways! my week has been crazy!! running back and forth from Nampa from Tuesday to Thursday for meetings and stuff haha we hardly got anything done! we met a really cool guy the other day while shoveling snow, he came over to help he was the guys nephew who we were helping, and he ASKED US if he could come to church with us on Sunday! the guy was golden! there was just one problem, and it sucks when this happens hahaha when you find out they don't live in your area!! it always seems to happen though haha you just have to keep on trying to find new people!! :) im sure we will have a lot of progress here really soon!! anyways I hope you guys all know the real meaning of Christmas! as members of the church it shouldn't be that hard to remember that Christmas is a time where we are to remember Jesus Christ!! Christmas has become so commercialized lately, and its never about Jesus Christ very often anymore, it is so important to remember to keep Christ in Christmas  :) there was a little story a member read to us called Mary's dream, on night she had woken up and was talking to joseph about a dream she had had, that everyone was celebrating the day Christ was born, but they weren't celebrating it as his birthday! and she said to Joseph, "how awful that would be! im so glad it was only just a dream" there was a lot more to the story but I can remember it all haha anyways, that dream she had? has all but become a reality. We need to remember that we are celebrating the day of Christ's birth! not the day that santa comes and gives you presents. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and always keep Christ in your hearts! He is the reason for the season and we need to always remember that! love you all have a fantastic week! :)
