Christmas in St. Maarten

Christmas here on St. Maarten consists of plenty of people on the roads and lots of traffic, but despite all of that we are having a great holiday season.  Our Branch put on a Nativity on Saturday and it was really cute to see the Primary and the Youth and everyone work together to put it on.
We had some investigators come and one of the investigators came to church bright and early the next day.  We found him a few weeks ago and we had our second lesson yesterday with him and he's so excited to get baptized.  He is very excited about the gospel and we can really see that there really are those that are prepared to hear this gospel, we just have to find them!
We have a baptism on Saturday and it's the mom of the only missionary that is out from St. Maarten.  He is currently serving in Haiti.  We're really excited for her and so is the Branch.
I don't have too much time but I hope that everyone is having a good Christmas Eve and will have a great Christmas tomorrow.  Christ is the center of this gospel and our lives, and this is such a blessed time where we are able to celebrate his birth.  I am so grateful for our kind Heavenly Father who sent His son to suffer for our sins so that we could return to them.  I know that Jesus is the Christ and that this gospel is the answer to all of our life's questions, problems and trials.
Much Love,
Sister Crompton
