Happy Sabbath: Letters of Love

Listen Download Print Share

Do this activity with your family!

When President Monson was bishop, he wrote letters every month to 23 members of his ward who were serving in the military away from home. One soldier didn’t write back for more than a year, but President Monson kept writing. Finally the man wrote back! He said that President Monson’s letters had helped him come back to the Church.
