Message from the Presidency August 2011

Can we make a difference to others when we follow the Savior? Does the service we perform in His name make the world a better place? Elder L. Tom Perry shares an experience he had while stationed in Nagasaki, Japan, after the end of WWII. Wanting to make a difference during time off, he and other soldiers repaired Christian churches and helped the ministers begin preaching again. When Elder Perry and his companions left Japan for home, the Japanese Christians they had served came to bid them farewell in a touching display of love and gratitude. Elder Perry testifies of the Savior and His love and Atonement for each of us, declaring that “the only lasting joy and happiness we will ever find during our mortal experience will come by following the Savior, obeying His law, and keeping His commandments.”

The Sister Spotlight August 2011

This sister was born in Rigby, Idaho but raised in Aiken, South Carolina. She was raised in a blended family of 7 sisters. She met her husband-to-be at a young single adult activity in Georgia. She moved to Provo, Utah where she dated the young man from Georgia again. They soon fell in love and were married. Their first home was in Draper, Utah where they lived for a year. Then service in the army took her husband to Fort Bragg, No. Carolina where they eventually lived for four years, and then Georgia again. There they both finished schooling. She graduated in Occupational Therapy. Recently, they moved here to Montana where she finished with clinicals. She is now in the process of job hunting. This family has been blessed with 4 children- 3 boys and one girl ages 8 years to 7 months. Her hobbies include sewing, camping, and photography. As a new member in our ward she was recently called as second counselor in the Primary presidency. Her husband says this calling is great for her because she loves children. We’re so excited to get to know her and her family better. Who is she?…(Click on the comments to find out.)
