Who Are We?

are here in the Provo 230th ward at this time in your life; we have all been brought together from all over the world to be incorporated into one of the finest systems of Latter-Day Saints that has ever appeared. Whether it be the friendliness that Aaron Bylund extends to everyone he meets, the ability of Anieta Cabias to put anyone in a good mood without even trying, the sincere kindness of Sam Garcia, how each Sunday Liz Kanell tries to sit I think of this concept as I have seen our little ward by someone she doesn’t know, or how come together; Since May 1st (less than 4 months inclusive Rachel Snow and Candice Bahm 2 2 ago) our ward lost about eighty members in one In a time when state pride overruled national pride, when we still hadn’t quite found our sense of national identity, when America was not seen as the Super Power that it is recognized as today, Hector St. John saw the value of a diverse group of individuals, each with unique talents and abilities, all coming together to contribute toward a better future.

SUNDAY MEETING SCHEDULE

1:00 – 2:10 PM: Sacrament Meeting 2:15 – 3:00 PM: Sunday School* 3:10 – 4:00 PM: Elders Quorum/Relief Society
are, how Ji Hye Park is always laughing, or Kate Smith’s determination that wont allow anyone fall through the cracks, or how the Bylund brothers and the Hutchison brothers look for every opportunity to serve others, this is just to name a few! (I didn’t plan for the shout out to go for this long but once I started thinking of a few people I couldn’t stop. There are many more I could go on about but I need to get on with this thought) If you embrace who you are, and love others for who they are, we can become known for the strengths that we all have developed over our lives, bringing these attributes together to act on higher principals, entertain new ideas, form new opinions, to be the cause of great changes that will effect our posterity and the world. “Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.” (DC 64:33).
