Farewell Talk - October 28, 2012

AJ gave his farewell talk in our new ward on October 28th. It was AMAZING! What an awesome young man he is (even if I am a little bias.) :)

It was so crazy! The count in Sacrament Meeting that day was 691! It was bigger than Stake Conference.  But like I've always said, AJ can be gone for two hours and come home with two new best friends.  I'm so thankful for the example of friendship, kindness and love that he has shown to us!

AJ asked his buddy Micah and his sister Shelby to sing... it was so beautiful! What a spirit that was felt that day! One to leave a mom very proud and in awe of these amazing children.

I was so moved by the song AJ chose, I'd like to share the words...

You Can Believe In Christ

Jeff Goodrich

Searching through the shadows of your mind
As you struggle to retain what’s left behind
Of the smiles and the laughter
Though the miles and years after all are gone.
Still you’d like to have them back again
For a chance to be with family and friends
And you wish your dear ones could be near ones
Without fear forever on and on.
You can believe in Christ
You can receive the Christ.
Walk in the joy of Christ and glory in his light.
You can embrace his word;
Until you face The Word.
Come and believe, come and receive Jesus Christ.
Striving just to glimpse eternity;
You wonder where tomorrow you will be
Who will have the power, in that hour
Will you now or never understand.
You can find the answer deep within yourself
Leave man’s philosophy upon the shelf.
And the light within you will continue
Leading you to know the Master’s hand.
(repeat Chorus)
