Christmas Eve at President and Sister Marston's home. We are so grateful to know that Gareth had such a wonderful Christmas season. He was taken care of by many different members and families and new friends.
We receive regular news letters from the Mission President and the following is an exert from his New Year Message to the Missionaries
Traditionally New Year’s Day is a time to reflect on the past and resolve to improve in the new year. Elder Holland has taught “every day ought to be the start of a new year and a new life. Such is the wonder of faith and repentance and the miracle of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”….The past is to be learned from and not lived in…..and when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead, we remember that
faith is always pointed to the future.”
Let’s look forward to 2016 with FAITH, with PURPOSE, and with GREAT EXPECTATIONS.
