FHE... Glue for the Family!

Another mini missionary... Elder Paredes is heading out to serve 
for a few weeks with Elder Ramos....

While our ex-Elder Eliseo Gomez from Lima stopped by for a visit
and was able to see his son, Elder Armstrong. Fun!
 We had a great family home evening with the Pacheco family 
and Gil and Pam Greer.
Brother Pacheco was baptized by President Turk a few months ago.
His wife was baptized by Gil Greer a couple of weeks ago
and the daughter will be following soon.
Gil and Pam Greer were here for a month
so we had dinner and FHE with them on their last night.
I pulled out a puzzle for Roxanna the eleven year old daughter
to put together
and look who was loving it the most... the men!

 I want my missionaries to know
how to have fun as a family playing simple games and puzzles
and to make sure that they remember to turn off
the TV, computers, phones, iPads etc...
Communication is so important in a family and it is so easy 
to destroy the beautiful dynamics
with all our electronic devices.

Gather your families every Monday night and have a 
spiritual lesson, some games, treats, music and talk and 
laugh and love each other.
These moments are very powerful as a family.
They act as the glue in this pull apart world.

  Family Home Evenings are like puzzles...
Everyone adds their pieces to the beautiful picture
and it makes all the hard work worth it.
When it is finished, everyone is proud and happy.
And the Family is Together Forever!
Greers and Pachecos
thanks for sharing FHE with us.
