Welcome Bryce!

Earlier this month Bryce asked Kristine to marry him and she said YES!   They are planning a Thanksgiving wedding which means that their marriage will be on the top of our list of things to be thankful for this year.

One by One

One by One
Words by David A. Bednar
Music by Paul Cardall
1. One by one, one by one.
Jesus, the Fa-ther’s Beloved Son—
One by one, one by one—
From the beginning said, “Thy will be done.”
Jesus Christ came to earth to fulfill God’s plan,
For He alone could atone as Savior of man.
The Lord blessed and beckoned them, “Come unto me,”
And willingly sacrificed to set us free.
One by one, one by one.
He suffered for us and victory won.
One by one, one by one.
We marvel at all His love has done,
One by one.

2. One by one, one by one.
Multitudes gathered and saw Him come.
One by one, one by one.
Each heard a voice declare, “Behold My Son.”
Jesus Christ came and stood in the midst of them.
They fell to the earth in great rev’rence for Him.
The Lord bid, “Arise, and come forth unto me.”
With hands they did feel and with eyes they did see.
One by one, one by one.
Each knew and bore record, He is our Lord.
One by one, one by one.
They cried “Hosanna” with one accord,
One by one.

3. One by one, one by one.
Christ looked around Him and saw their tears.
One by one, one by one.
In His compassion, He calmed their fears.
Jesus Christ healed each one brought forth unto Him.
Then He blessed each precious child and prayed for them.
The angels descended from heaven above,
Encircling those little ones; each felt His love.
One by one, one by one.
He intercedes for each daughter and son.
One by one, one by one.
Strength from His grace gives us pow’r to become,
One by one.

Hello Elder Magnusson

"Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15
We enjoy receiving an email from Sam every Monday.  Here are some of his closing remarks from some recent emails.   

"everyday is an adventure and i’m loving it. the mission is going well. i’m really liking what i am learning right now. i know that the Gospel is true and that God love us. i’m grateful for the testimony that i have gained here on the mission. it has changed my life.

"i feel like if a person wants to learn about how to be a better person in this world all he has to do is go on a mission. i feel like i’m growing up a lot but at the same time i still feel like i’m the same kid i was before the mission. i’ll let you guys be the judge in 10 months."

We'll see you in 10 months, Elder Magnusson!
