Serving the Wonderful Russian People

written by Ian Houston
Holding the unopened envelope in his hands standing before a group of friends and family, Griffin Houston of the Lake Ridge I Ward said, “I am going to love everyone that I meet here, and I am going to love the place no matter where I go.” He then opened the large white envelope that would change his life.

Elder Griffin Houston has now been serving in the Russia St. Petersburg Mission as a volunteer for nearly 9 months. He is currently serving in Novgorod, one of the most important historic cities in Russia. Elder Houston has indeed come to love the wonderful Russian people and the place he has been assigned. He said of the people in the small branch in Novgorod that he has seen them “growing closer to each other as any branch ever could.”

Elder Houston’s story is also unique because his brother Elder Aidan Houston is also serving a Russian speaking mission in central Ukraine at the same time. The two brothers share a close bond during a remarkable period of growth and challenge in this region of the world.
Elder Houston recently wrote, “we do not walk the path of discipleship alone.”  He added, “in the face of fear, let us find our courage, muster our faith, and have confidence in the promise that “no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.”

Sacred Sundays, His Day

Today is the most sacred Sunday.  It is His day, the day we celebrate His greatest miracle, the day Jesus Christ was resurrected, claiming victory over death.
