"This is the Spirit of Christmas, which puts in our hearts a desire to give joy to other people. We feel a Spirit of giving and gratitude for what we have been given. The celebration of Christmas helps us keep our promise to always remember Him and His gifts to us. And that remembrance creates a desire in us to give gifts to Him." ~President Henry B. Eyring, "The Gift of a Savior," 2010 First Presidency Christmas Devotional.
This past year has been one of continual growth and countless blessings.
With the dedicated assistance of more than 1,800 service missionaries, PathwayConnect’s enrollment has reached 14,983 students gathering in 387 sites throughout 39 countries.
We are thrilled and humbled as more PathwayConnect completers continue to obtain jobs, as well as degrees and academic certificates through Brigham Young University-Idaho and beyond. But above all, we are grateful that students continue to build their testimonies in Jesus Christ and His gospel.
As we witness the gift BYU-Pathway has become to so many across the world, we also remember the gift of the life and mission of our Savior, Jesus Christ. If we seek Him each day and share His gifts of joy, our hearts will be opened, and the blessings of His love will be revealed in all we do. Let us remember Him this Christmas season. Let us remember Him always.
