It is time to wish each of you a wonderful Christmas. May you and your families feel the true spirit of Christmas as you celebrate the birth of the Saviour.
Thank you for all that you do to help others with their temple and family history work. We have enjoyed our visits with you in 2011 and look forward to seeing you in 2012.
This is our last article for 2011. We will resume on 8 January 2012.
We hope that 2012 will be a wonderful and special year.
- To Turn the Hearts Leader’s Guide and DVD are on their way or already at Stakes and Wards! There are some wording changes as well as formatting changes. Please destroy any copies of the draft copy including any copies of the pdf file you downloaded previously. While only 5 copies of the Guide were sent to each unit, they will be available shortly through Distribution. Please download a copy of the pdf file from either Serving in the Church at lds.org or familysearch.org/serve/. An example of a change can be found by comparing the old page 11 from the draft version which is now page 12. The draft version wording “position the High Priest Group Leader as the coordinator of the ward council’s temple and family history work . . .” has been changed to say “the bishopric ensures that the high priests group leader acts as the coordinator of the ward council’s temple and family history work.” Please study the final document. .
- Please continue to review familysearch.org/serve to see new training resources.
For Christmas we would like to give each of you a colored 9 generation fan chart of your family history. Go to createfan.com, and log in with your lds account. Then click on Create. You get a coloured fan chart which you can save and zoom. We hope you enjoy your chart! Instructions are in a video available on the FH for Youth website at lds.org/fhy in the section entitled See My Family Tree. Createfan.com is a 3rd party affiliate service that prints a chart from your file at nFS.
Every best wish for Christmas and the New Year!
