D&C  18: 15 And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!
*We can all receive this joy through sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   
            We will continue to do missionary work.  We are planning to serve more missions if it is the Lord's desire.
We have seen miracles happen in many lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Grandma and Grandpa,
Mom and Dad,
