Kids clearing cemetery a ‘beautiful sight’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I’m writing in regards to the photos and write up about the kids from Mesa LDS. I live across from the high school where they all gathered. A huge sign read Better Superior, at the top of the stairs.

I watched as they all gathered in a group before they entered. They were laughing and cheering, hugging and listening to the chaperones as they talked to them – a beautiful sight to see and hear.

Every retreat they have had there has been impressive to me, and, to see them all clearing our cemetery was a heavenly sight.

The smile on the young girl’s face said it all. Our family would like to give praise for this young group, and a huge thank you, and, God bless to each of them.

I even saw all of them having an early breakfast outside on the tennis courts. After I would get out of work at 10:00 I would sit outside and listen to them as they sat around the fire, and talked and sang, and, laughed.

Thanks for letting me listen to the joy of this retreat.
