Arise and Shine Forth

We got to be part of a wonderful, unique experience last night. We joined the youth of five stakes at our stake center at the end of their New Year's Eve celebration.

The theme for the coming year is "Arise and Shine Forth," challenging our youth to let others see the light of Christ in their countenance. A worthy goal, indeed.

To kick it off, at midnight the kids were able to send off floating lanterns. Here's a few photos:

Lots of wonderful youth

over 150 lanterns went up

and here's a fun video:

Happy New Year, everyone. May the coming year bring the light of Christ to you.
