    The Friend and Christmas Spirit

    Elisabeth H., age 9

    The December 2010 Friend reminded me about the Christmas spirit. It made me think about how my family lives in a country where we can’t share the gospel with anyone. Luckily, we still have a small branch, even though not many people here believe in the gospel. I know that the gospel is true and that the Christmas spirit is about Jesus’s birth and about giving—not about getting presents. I hope some day soon people everywhere will start believing in the gospel.
