Friends by Mail


I Can Be a Missionary Now

Kenya J., age 9, Utah

A friend of mine doesn’t come to church anymore, and I miss him very much. The Friend has helped me choose the right, and I wanted it to help him too. I wrote him a letter sharing my testimony and bought two Friend magazines and delivered them to his home. I felt warm and happy after delivering the gifts. I know that I can be a missionary now.

Going the Extra Mile

Tyler E., age 7, Washington

I read “Going the Extra Mile” in the January 2011 Friend. It made me want to be a better helper at home. I cleaned my room and then played with my sister. It made me feel good inside. My mom was happy too.

How I Read the Friend

Preston B., age 4, Texas

Preston reads the Friend while taking a break from picking berries.

Family Home Evening with the Friend

Isabel C., age 7, Texas

I like to read the stories and do the activities in the Friend. The magazine also makes family home evening fun and easy to teach when it is my turn to teach the lesson.
