I live just down the road from Texas Convert and I have a son in the MTC who
participated in the service project as well. We miss him and look forward with
joy to his faith filled Friday letters.
that's what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is all
about...helping and loving others with all of our hearts and strength.
As a mother of a sister missionary who reported to the MTC on November 20, I was
wondering what she and the other missionaries might be doing on Thanksgiving
Day. How might the MTC choose to honor this great American holiday since so
many missionaries were away from their families. Because of this
article, I caught a glimpse of what our daughter spent her time doing on
Thanksgiving Day. I can only imagine the true impact this activity had on our
daughter and the other missionaries. Thanks be to the article's author and
the vast and sincere humanitarian efforts of the church. I am humbled and
over-joyed at this great work that goes about so quietly and substantially. Even though we miss our daughter, there is no place on earth I would
rather her be, even if she did miss our Thanksgiving gathering. Mosiah 2:17And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom;
that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are
only in the service of your God.
You go Missionaries and keep up the Lords work, he will bless you and your
families more than you can begin to imagine. As you meet members through out the
world you will find a continual family of people who love and care about you,
you will be blessed and learn to love all of Heavenly Fathers children. Bless
each and everyone of you and most of all bless you Mother and Fathers that have
instilled the desire for you young men and women to serve in the Lords army of
teaching the Gospel
LOL..."Utes Fan"....I thought the same thing only opposite. WHAT? RED
hairnets at BYU? What is going wrong in the church! Of course, I'm
joking. This is a great story of service that made me feel great on a
"Black Friday" morning. What a great thing for so many missionaries to
Nice job, missionaries! Love the RED hairnets!
