Elder and Sister Larsen
Four months already, fast when you’re having fun. Christmas in Mesa, Arizona is different. We are loving the weather, the flowers, palm trees and cactus. Our little apartment is comfortable and we are enjoying it. We love what we have learned so far. We know our work is important and will help others find links to their loved ones so temple work can be done.
We are learning about our ancestors on our own time. We have learned that Photographs and Stories create strong bonds that tie generations together. We have learned to love them as we have come to know them. James E. Faust said “Genealogical ancestry or blood lines are of importance because our lineage is a chain or linkage through which many of our blessings flow.” We have great ancestors who worked hard and sacrificed much to make it possible for us to be born with a great heritage and be raised in the gospel.
We love our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the sacrifice He made for us. We know He suffer for our sins. He put into effect the great plan of happiness. We are striving to help Him to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. He is our Redeemer. We will see Him again and live with Him along with our loved ones if our hearts and minds will follow his example.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are thankful for your support, your friendship and especially your prayers. We pray that you and all your families are well, especially this time of year. We Love You ~ Jim & Judy
