Merry Christmas from Finland

Hyvää Joulua
С Рождеством Христа
Merry Christmas

Nativity at the Helsinki Finland Temple
May our Savior's love and peace abide in your life at Christmas and throughout the coming year!

As we reflect on the blessings of the past year and look forward to the future we are so grateful for Jesus Christ and His redeeming love.  Because of Him we have the promise of eternal family companionship.  We are so grateful for our family - for the kindness and goodness; for their love and support; for their example to us.  Before leaving for our mission we were able to gather together for this family photo.

Of course we miss our family, but know that we are where we should be as we serve on this mission.  Our lives are full and we love Finland and the members of the church and others we work with here.  It is a joy to be in the Lord's service, particularly at this season.
