Mother's Day

Mother's Day


Nathan was able to call home for Mother's Day which is always great! He sent a special message for the other kids to write in my card as well as include him on the gifts. It was really thoughtful.

We also told Nathan about Sacrament meeting and how a speaker told about the origin of Mother's Day. The idea started in Grafton, West Virginia when a woman called Anna Jarvis held a small memorial service for her late mother on May 12, 1907. She then started a letter writing campaign and soon after, most places in America were observing the day. In 1914, the US president made it a national holiday, celebrated on the second Sunday of May.

He told us how he and his companion did splits with the Assistants to the President. They were able to contact 15 investigators each that day. He said the APs were fearless. They would just go up to people in the parks, tap on people's car windows and unroll their windows at stoplights. They definitely did not hesitate to share the gospel with those around them. Nathan and Elder Perry will follow up with those contacts this week.

They also ate a Mexican Restaurant first with the APs and then the District on Pday. Nathan was a fan of the food.
