Thanksgiving came and went as it does every year. We celebrated with our friends, the Howards, another senior couple and one of their sons and his wife. We spent the day feasting on turkey, southern style yams, mashed potatoes, stuffed mushrooms and other delicacies. After dinner we played a fun game of Mexican Train.
As we thought of the many reasons for being thankful, here are a few that stand out:
The Plan of Salvation and The Atonement.
The First Vision to the Prophet Joseph Smith.
The Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Restoration of the Priesthood.
The Restoration of the Temple Ordinances.
Our Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
Our Wonderful Friends including each and every one of you.
There are many others, but all seem to flow from these 7.We are happy to serve our Father's children here in Quebec. Many of our blessings are the result of our
being engaged in the Lord's work. We are seeing many miracles here. Just recently a retired dentist who lives in our apartment building has been taking the missionary lessons. He has been to our apt for FHE. Ivan loves all that he has learned and he feels the spirit strongly when he is among the members of the church. He watched General Conference, has been to Stake Conference and church and now he has a baptismal date of Jan 11th. We had Stephanie randomly come to the mission office at the request of her daughter who met up with some missionaries at the university. We gave her a little tour and taught her some basic principles. She was very impressed and now she and her two children want to join the church. Our baptisms in the mission are at an all time high. Just in the past two weeks we had about 25 baptisms. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on earth. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. We love Him with all of our hearts.
