"The fight for freedom is God's fight.
So when a man stands for freedom he stands with God.
And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God.
A man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."
--Ezra Taft Benson

Letter from Dave

My dear family,

I hope you are happy.  Heavenly Father has blessed us alot this past year.  Be sure to thank him often for these blessings.  Thank him especially for so many good people who love him and us and who have shared so much love with us this past year.

Keep having patience and faith that we will soon be reunited.  I don't know what his plan is for me and us but regardless of what it is I know we must continue being faithful to him at all times and having faith in our glorious reunion with each other in the future. I know I am not a very good writer, but don't ever doubt my love for you.  I constantly think of you all day, everyday.  My heart aches for you, each of you.  I cry to Heavenly Father daily in my prayers that he will reunite us soon.  I know he is aware and will reunite us on his time.  We must have patience and faith in him.  We are his children and he will take care of us.

I am so honored to be your father and husband.  You are all so good and faithful.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to call you my children and beautiful wife.  Be happy, stay strong, say your prayers, read your scriptures.  I'll love you for eternity.

Love Dad.

Dave is the sweetest and most kindest man.  We are so blessed to have him in our lives.  We are grateful for how strong he is being during this trial.  We can hardly wait for the glorious reunion that we will have when we are reunited as a family once again.  Please continue to pray for our family and all the other families that are involved in this trial.  Heavenly Father does listen to our prayers.  He gives us strength when we feel we can not endure another day.  This trial is extremely hard but we know that if we continue to have patience and faith in his plan that Dave will come back home to our family where he belongs.  We love you all and are thankful for your love and support.  We are indeed humbled and grateful for the kindness you have shown towards our family this past year.  God bless you all.

  2. He will prevail, and your family will triumph. Our prayers are with you always.

  3. Thank y'all for your brave stand, I believe in all you Stand for, beautiful families.
