My son watches these young men serving LDS Missions very carefully and can’t wait to be among their ranks. They go out and serve others for two years by sharing a message of joy and love. I️ consider my mission to Brazil as one of the greatest experiences of my life. I️ miss I️t often. “...when he grows a foot or two”. Maybe just 6” in his case. .
Last Sunday I had a chance to walk through Temple Square in Salt Lake City. I have been there many times, but still felt the same peace and reverence there. When there, I particularly like stopping at the Christus statue which is located in the Visitor's Center. It is a copy of the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's work in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen. In 1896 an American textbook writer considered it the "most perfect statue of Christ in the World." While I don't know if it is the "most perfect" but I do think the inscription at the base is perfect. It says "Kommer til mig" which is translated as "Come to me." I am grateful for that invitation to His outstretched arms.
