Please Print More Temple Cards

Jonah B., age 12, Wisconsin

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for the Friend magazine. I really enjoy reading it each month. I enjoyed the temple cards in past issues. I’ve cut out all the temple cards that I could find and pasted them together. Now I’ve got a wall covered with temples all over the world. My collection is complete up to the Helsinki Finland Temple. Would you mind printing temple cards for the next nine temples, please?

You can find the next nine temple cards on page 11. Find previous temple cards in all 2002 issues and in the April 2005 and September 2007 issues at lds.org/friend.

Relaxing with the Friend

Dallin P., age 10, California

I am much shorter than most kids in my class, so sometimes I am called mean names. But after school, I like to kick back, relax, and enjoy the Friend. The Friend has so many inspiring things that I like to read and do. The “Bright Ideas” are my favorite. I can’t wait to get the next Friend!

The Friend and Christmas Spirit

Elisabeth H., age 9

The December 2010 Friend reminded me about the Christmas spirit. It made me think about how my family lives in a country where we can’t share the gospel with anyone. Luckily, we still have a small branch, even though not many people here believe in the gospel. I know that the gospel is true and that the Christmas spirit is about Jesus’s birth and about giving—not about getting presents. I hope some day soon people everywhere will start believing in the gospel.
