Jefferson 1st Ward

My mom and dad have finished their first mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  They served a service mission in inner-city Ogden for the last two and a half years.  My dad helped with the ward finances and records while my mom served as a visiting teacher and in the primary teaching every Sunday.

They have met and befriended so many people in that ward.  Some of those they knew before being called into the ward and many are new friends.  I have enjoyed hearing their stories and meeting their friends, too.

While they are happy to have had the opportunity to be in the Jefferson Ward, they are sad to go.  My dad has had a love for the people there since the Jefferson Ward was included in the Riverdale Stake.  He visited there as often as possible while he served in the stake presidency.  My mom loves her primary children and is sad to leave them.

Next week, they can start another adventure back in their home ward and prepare for their next mission.  My parents are wonderful examples of loving others and loving our Heavenly Father through serving wherever they are called.
