Many stake members joined the Rodriguez Family and others for the ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, Dec 10. Janae Rodriguez was given the keys to the house, and then stake members helped her and her daughters move in—finally home for Christmas. President Moon emphasized the service and human warmth of the project, and how fitting it was that it culminated at Christmastime. He observed that when we remember our real home is with our Father in Heaven, and we yearn for and serve Him through the holiday season, it gives special meaning to the sentiment, “I’ll be home for Christmas.”
These shall dwell in the presence of God and his Christ forever and ever. (D&C 76:62)
Stabbing, cutting, tying things up. That may sound like the 11-year-old scouts at the father/son campout. But here, it’s the Twelfth Ward Relief Society, channeling all that energy into some great quilts for the Rodriguez family.

On June 22, a group of dedicated volunteers worked to get the trusses all in place. A huge effort. Our great photographer (he knows who he is) got some wonderful shots!
