|Elder and Sister Curtis spoke to the Ghana MTC missionaries on Christmas morning for the Area Devotional. Elder Curtis is the Area President of the Africa West Area.|
Today is Christmas. We began the day with an Area Devotional presented by Elder and Sister Curtis. (Elder Curtis is the Area President of the Africa West Area.) He said that in searching for Christmas card possibilities to send this year, he could not find any online that made references to the Savior. He centered his remarks around "why Christmas is worth celebrating with Jesus Christ being the center of our celebrations." One of the best references that answers this question is found in Alma 7:10-13. "It is a glorious thing that we can overcome the challenges of this life - death, sin and our challenges - because of the Savior. I sing with great enthusiasm 'Joy to the World.'" What a great way to begin our Christmas celebration.
