Merry MasChrist

I just typed Christmas into Google Images, and tons of pictures of Christmas trees, and presents, and Santa Claus came up. Isn't that sad? After all, Christmas is Jesus' birthday, shouldn't he be what this is all about?

This year, my friend Gabby and her family have decided to call Christmas MasChrist, In spanish, MasChrist translates to more Christ. I really like this idea, because I think it puts the focus on the birth of Christ. Which is what the focus should be on anyway! How would you feel if no one even thought about you on your birthday? I think that would be a bit how Jesus feels.

I think I'm going to give this another try. I know that I have been really bad about posting lately, but there are some really exciting things going on at the Block house that are worth sharing:). The most exciting thing to me, is that my family will be moving to Guatemala for full-time missions. I think this is really cool. I have always wanted to be a missionary, because that is what I love most. I cannot wait! I know it will be totally different from my life now, but I have learned that different is good. I am definitely going to miss my friends and my school, but it will be so worth it! Follow me as we continue on this journey!
