A Christmas message: "They Gave Up Their Christmas"

"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh."  Matthew 2:11.

We are often told that the spirit of Christmas is giving.  The members of the Spanish ward in Madera, California, in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley, have taken this message to heart.  I will let the video tell the story but it reminds me of the goodness of the Hispanic people, of their dedication to the Savior, and their unselfish labor on His behalf.  They understand and live the spirit of Christmas.  Elliot is blessed to work with such great people as a Spanish-speaking missionary.  Enjoy the video after the break.
