Christ is the Prince of Peace & AUDIO: “Silent Night” Missionary Quartet

I testify that Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. I know this because as I serve Him and as I serve alongside Him, I feel His Holy Spirit – and when I do, I feel sweet peace and tranquility within my being and with these beloved people who I love.

Editor’s Note: Elder Spencer Call finishes his mission in just a few short weeks. Here’s his Christmas letter home, plus audio of Elder Call, some office Elders and President Bush singing “Silent Night” in Spanish. His letter is short because our family later Skyped with him and his brother, Elder Andrew Call, on Christmas Day.

LISTEN: To Elder Spencer Call, mission president Bush, and other office elders sing, “Silent Night”.

 

Dearest Family,

Christ is the Prince of Peace!

Just one little spiritual thought – as I’ve been studying the Book of Mormon daily with the question, ¨Who is Jesus Christ, according to the Book of Mormon? It’s been interesting to me to see how the prophets over time refer to Him differently. My dearest title for Him is the Prince of Peace – I love this description of Him: 

2 Nephi 26:8-9

But behold, the righteous that hearken unto the words of the prophets, and destroy them not, but look forward unto Christ with steadfastness for the signs which are given, notwithstanding all persecution—behold, they are they which shall not perish.

But the Son of Righteousness shall appear unto them; and he shall heal them, and they shall have peace with him, until three generations shall have passed away, and many of the fourth generation shall have passed away in righteousness.​​​​​​​​​​

I testify that Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. I know this because as I serve Him and as I serve alongside Him, I feel His Holy Spirit – and when I do, I feel sweet peace and tranquility within my being and with these beloved people who I love.

The Truth Will Make You Free

“Por el poder del Espíritu Santo podréis conocer la verdad de todas la cosas,¨ y ¨la verdad se os hará libres…¨ [Editor: ¨ By the power of the Holy Spirit you will be able to know the truth of all things, ¨ and ¨ the truth will make you free … ]. Christ makes us free, and He does so as we righteously and valiantly choose to follow. Because of Him, we can have complete and perfect peace as He teaches us the perfect way.

Love you lots.

Love, Elder Call
