Dear parents of missionaries,
During the week before Christmas we met with each of our missionaries in wonderful Christmas Conferences. We had missionary training, a scriptural Christmas program with amazing musical talent, a delicious lunch and other yummy treats, and a service project. It was a joy to be with these delightful missionaries. We always marvel at their great abilities, their many talents, their willingness and diligence in this work, and the goodness of their lives.
We love this sacred season when we remember the birth of our Savior. Our hearts are filled with gratitude to be able to serve together with your sons and daughters, sharing our testimonies of Jesus Christ and the restoration of His gospel to the earth.
We hope you have had a special Christmas and that you will have a wonderful new year. We pray constantly for our missionaries and for you, their families.
With love and gratitude,
President and Sister Tanner
