Previously you saw the theme posted for this year's Primary Sacrament Meeting presentation. Sunday was extra special because the children sang many beautiful songs and filled the chapel with the Spirit, AND, after that, we drove an hour in the early evening for a Thanksgiving feast at the mission home!!

Elder Z. (Armenian) and Elder F. (Dutch) had to learn English for their mission, and they are the missionaries who found this family! This has to make for a very interesting teaching arrangement. It seems the Holy Ghost is doing a lot of the teaching. Miracles never cease!
I have to mention one more thing about the Primary Program in Sacrament Meeting yesterday. Three of the children had their grandfather pass away a couple of days ago. They still showed up to the program, sang solos, did their speaking parts well, and only one of them broke down a little. Meanwhile, grandma (who had just lost her husband) was there to support them, along with the mother who just lost her father. That kind of dependability is remarkable. They had every excuse not to be there, but they were there to fulfill their responsibilities because they love the Lord and didn't want to disappoint the people at church in the Primary's efforts to present an uplifting and spiritual message of God's love. I stand in awe of the remarkable talents and skills the children all demonstrated as they sang their hearts out in praise and adoration of the Savior and our Father in Heaven.
