    We were privileged to be part of the 200 youth from Ottawa, Kingston, and Montreal stakes who sang "come come ye saints" to Arielle. This song is our church's national anthem and to these youth, Arielle won a gold medal. There was hardly a dry eye as these youth felt a real connection with and love for her as a fellow Saint. The next day when wards in these stakes sang come come ye saints as a closing hymn, a local stake president said that the youth felt again the spirit. Arielle is a remarkable young woman with an outstanding ability to connect with youth and to enrich their lives. Many prayers are being expressed on her behalf.

    Come, come, ye saints, nor toil nor labor fear, but with joy wend your way.
    Though hard to you this journey may appear, grace shall be as your day.
    Tis better far for us to strive our useless cares from us to drive.
    Do this, and joy your heart will swell! All is well! All is well!

    Why should we mourn, or think our lot is hard? Tis not so all is right.

    Thanks Arielle.
