MERRY CHRISTMAS! I wanted to let you see what has been done on my mission since leaving in January: 20+ baptisms & so much more . . . so many lives touched!
Scott Abott (left) - 17 years old. One of him would have been worth my whole mission. His confirmation blessing included that he would serve a mission and would be a tool and asset to the Lord. He told me that his Patriarchal Blessing talks about him converting many.
This picture was taken at the Mount Timpanogos Temple on a baptismal trip. Chris (right) told me I had reconverted him, and he is leaving soon for a mission in Kansas.
Michael Wilson (13), Scott's younger brother. I love that kid! A privilege to bring 2 members of a family to the gospel and to see Scott baptize him.
Chloe Larsen (9), baptized July 18, 2009. Amazing girl! I just love her and her family. Her Mom is a Rich!
Meet some added family members: Carlos & Karen Rojas. Married & baptized July 30, 2009, with sons Dennis (lil' guy) & Leon. I love them more than words can say!
Jimmy (10) and Cole (8). He got baptized the last Saturday I had in Traverse Mountain, Sept. 5, 2009. Love these boys -- Jimmy is such a good kid!
Sita La Prey from Nepal. Baptized after I left Traverse Mountain area. While English was her second language, she felt the gospel in her! (and her food was amazing!)
Hayden Shaw (10) -- baptized after I left. Crazy kid -- love him!
Jasmine (12) and Christian (9 or 10). Baptized after I left Bloomington -- got to go on exchanges there and dropped by to see them. Love that family -- they had us over for Easter.
The Farmer Family, baptized Sept. 26, 2009: Stephanie (Mom), Michael, Cody. Amazing family!
Mykenna Dutton, baptized Sept. 26, 2009. Miracle: We were late from the Farmer's baptism and heard a splash! No!!! But, she had to be baptized twice, so we got to see it.
Rhiannon Rheusch (11), baptized Oct. 10, 2010. Confirmation blessing said if she followed Church leaders, she would serve a mission(!) and get married in the temple.
The Amazing Couples with Whom I Serve at the St. George Temple Visitors Center & Historical Sites
Miles James (17), baptized Dec. 12, 2009. One of the best people I know!
Now, these aren't even the surface of all the people I've met who have touched me. MERRY CHRISTMAS. Love, Elizabeth Harwood
