For Elder Matthew's Mother

A few days after your son, Elder Matthews, arrived in Larnaca he turned 20 and was no longer a teen! We celebrated at District Mtg.

Can you spot him in this long line up with Elder Christensen at the head?

I suggested that he might react to the stuffed lion for the picture, and this is what I got.

There is something angelic in his eyes. Even more than what a mother can see.

Even though he has been out such a short time, he is already a great teacher and bears a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Someone taught him well

to work in the kitchen willingly,

to be obedient,

to love the work,

to love others,

to have fun,

to enjoy the journey,

to endure the hard times, and to always be polite. I guess it must have been you!

Thank you for making him a great young man and for sending him to us!  Much love, the Christensens

  1. I love all the pictures, Aunt Lucy! You guys are doing such a great work there. It looks like you had such a nice time in Greece--it must have been so wonderful to feel strengthened with all those other senior missionaries. I can't believe you only have 7 months left!
