Instead of a typical Christmas party, our ward chose to do a Humanitarian Christmas. Gathering items for school and hygiene kits, painting wooden blocks, sewing & tying quilts, sewing & stuffing balls, soft books, etc., have been on everyone’s mind and in their busy hands.
Tonight we gathered, worked together, ate, and celebrated. The primary children sang a few songs. The kiddos and I joined their buddy, Jack, on the floor and listened to their performance. The dancer couldn’t help but move to their beautiful music. One of the young men put together a beautiful slide show depicting the journey our ward has taken together and within our families.
I was especially touched to see many people come that I have never met before, children I did not know belong to our primary, attended. It was a beautiful night. We had a wonderful time.
