On New Year’s Eve day we went out with the Elders to a village in the countryside to visit a less active family. It was such a great visit, and there was a wonderful spirit in their home. The Elders first had us all read the Christmas story in Luke interspersed with Christmas carols. Elder and Sister Reed then talked about four important gifts our Heavenly Father has given us. Afterward we gave them the little gifts we had brought for the family. Svetlana, the mother, wanted us to stay for dinner, so we enjoyed a delicious Ukrainian meal with the family. After the meal we played a game with the kids which got us all laughing. What a perfect day this was to ring in the New Year!
May your New Year be filled with joy, sacred moments, peace, laughter, and with giving your love away to others.
