Mormon Missionary Brother's Skype Home For Christmas

Since Elder J Hackleman will be coming home from his mission in March and his brother Elder S Hackleman just left on his mission, they will not be able to see each other in person for 3 1/2 years.  Twice a year missionaries are allowed to skype home to the family.  Once on Christmas and once on Mother's Day. Other than these two times a year, the only contact missionaries have outside their missions is via a once a week email.  Because of this, the 1/2 hour skyping time is priceless.

As the mother of both missionaries I have to admit I sat and cried as I watched my two boys talking.  Not because I was sad, but because I am so thankful and proud of them.  I couldn't be more blessed as a mother.  Our family has missed them terribly, but we understand the great work they are doing and wouldn't have it any other way.  Our family has been blessed abundantly back at home because of their great service.

We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly, we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

This is my Work and My Glory, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Moses 1:39

We believe in God the Eternal Father, in his Son, Jesus Christ, and in The Holy Ghost.  Because of our firm belief in God and the importance of his gospel plan, we feel a deep desire to share it with the world.

President Ezra Taft Benson (1899–1994) said:

“The Book of Mormon brings men to Christ through two basic means.

1.  It tells in a plain manner of Christ and his gospel.

2.  The Book of Mormon exposes the enemies of Christ.

It confounds false doctrines and lays down contention. (See 2 Ne. 3:12.) It fortifies the humble followers of Christ against the evil designs, strategies, and doctrines of the devil in our day. The type of apostates in the Book of Mormon are similar to the type we have today. God, with his infinite foreknowledge, so molded the Book of Mormon that we might see the error and know how to combat false educational, political, religious, and philosophical concepts of our time” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1975, 94–95; or Ensign, May 1975, 64).
