Merry Christmas from Honduras 2015

For all our dear friends and family and this special time of year.

When we say our 'dear' friends and family, that is the understatement of a lifetime . . .  We cannot even begin to recognize and rejoice in the many ways that each one of you have influenced our lives in some way.  When we say we miss you and wish our most happiest and most joyful wishes for you in the New Year ahead, it's doesn't even begin to express the heartfelt emotion that we experience as we think of each one of you.  You all touch our lives in so many ways.  From your kind caring concern, your actual physical service and good deeds, the good thoughts and prayers we feel in our behalf, to the support we have felt throughout our missionary service, to the friendships you extend to our family, especially our children . . . thank you just isn't a big enough word.  We feel emotionally connected across the miles to so many . . .





And a special thanks to our many many missionaries, serving and returned  . . . what a privilege it has been in our lives to be associated with you, and to serve alongside you as we accomplish our Heavenly Father's work here on the earth.  We extend our warmest Christmas wishes to you and your families and want you to know that not a day goes by that we don't think of and miss you all and appreciate the wonderful things you were and are able to accomplish during your missionary service.  Thank you.

The Savior of the World . . .

Even though life continues to be a roller coaster of challenges and adventures here in Honduras, life is good and we truly feel our blessings have far outweighed our challenges.  Our Heavenly Father continues to bless us greatly, and we feel privileged to have the opportunity to testify daily of the glorious mission of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  That He is the Savior of the world, the Son of God, our Redeemer. That He was born in Bethlehem, organized His Church with Priesthood power and authority upon the earth.  He is the only way by which we can return to the presence of our Heavenly Father.  




Jesus Christ suffered and died for the sins of the world, for you and for me, for us, giving each of God's children the gift of repentance and forgiveness.  And through His resurrection prepared the way for each person to overcome physical death as well.  These events are called the Atonement.  We testify that it is real, and is for you for me, for us. 

It's a privilege to share with the world that some day He will return to the earth again - 

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government
shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, 
Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.











Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He will be our Lord, forever.





We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Wherever this Christmas season may find you, we testify that these things are real.  That God is our loving Heavenly Father.  That He knows us and loves us.  That He desires to bless us.  That we celebrate the birth of His son at this special season of the year.  May you enjoy this special season with your family gathered all around.  May you experience the fulness of life's greatest blessings in the year ahead.  






We send our love across the miles from the wilds of Honduras.  

Merry Christmas!

Missionaries teach A Savior is Born

(Sorry so long in between posts . . . I broke my camera in September and have finally received a new one! Hurray! So more photos on the way . . . in the meanwhile, enjoy these cell phone photos!  Thank goodness for cell phones!!)



The Living Christ . . .


As Missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is our great privilege to testify daily of the important role of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Even though He came to earth, suffered and died for us upon the cross . . . 

Today He lives!






He was the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament, the Messiah of the New. Under the direction of His Father, He was the creator of the earth. “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3). 
 Of Him the Prophet, Joseph Smith, also declared: “And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!
“For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father—“That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God” (D&C 76:22–24).
