i’m grateful for. . .
the amazing example my children and i have of a grandpa and father-in-law that is spending his life serving the Lord. Elder Clate Mask has served in the 2nd quorum of the seventy for our church and was released on october 3, 2009. this picture was taken during general conference after he gave the closing prayer. i love this picture and the look on my father-in-law's face. what an amazing feeling to know you have done a good job serving the Lord and to be surrounded by President Monson and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. i am grateful my children can look at this picture and say, "that's my grandpa!"
attending conference has been a blessing in our lives. despite the challenges to get there, our family will always be grateful for how our testimonies grew because of the opportunity we had to listen to a prophet’s voice.
Granny & Grandpa are now going to serve as mission presidents in Guatemala. again I am grateful for their example to continue serving.
