We'll pass your words of encouragement along to Chris!

March 25

"Easter is coming up quickly, and we have a plan. On Easter people will greet you with "Isus Voskres! (Christ was resurrected!)" and respond with "Bo istynu voskres! ( In truth he was resurrected!)." When we greet people we will give them Living Christ pamphlets.
I have also been trying an idea I had with member families. We teach them a short powerful lesson, then give them two banana breads or plates of brownies: one for them and one to give to friends. If their friends like it, we ask them to invite them over and we will make the dessert together. It is a non-threatening way to introduce people to missionaries. We've only just started it so we will see how it goes."

My name is Brett Martin Smith. My son, Elder Parker Martin Smith, and he is currently a Zone Leader serving in the Ukraine Donetsk Mission. My daughter's name is Kristina Lauren Smith and she is attending Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, Arizona to become a nurse. So... what brings me to this blog?

I also leave you with a hymn text I wrote with a friend - If anybody can write music better than I, which is easy to do, put it to music

Lift Up Your Heart

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice
Sing praises to Him who dwells on high
Lift up your heart, be glad and rejoice
Honor to Him who for us did die
Lift up your heart; glorious psalm
His love is our calm at the eye
Lift up your heart, He steadies the storm
He is love, He is peace, He is Life

Though my soul it may roar and be troubled
Though my spirit at times it does quake
I will not lose my faith through the battle
God is my refuge and strength

Though the suf'ring seem long and I weary
I'll endure to the end of each day
I will not lose my sight in the darkness
God is the light and the way

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice
Sing praises to Him who dwells on high
Lift up your heart, be glad and rejoice
Honor to Him who for us did die
Lift up your heart; glorious psalm
His love is our calm at the eye
Lift up your heart, He steadies the storm
He is love, He is peace, He is life

I'll let not my heart fill with torment
I'll let not my soul be afraid
I'll strengthen with might by his Spirit
I'll lengthen the peace in my day

I'll open my heart to the Master
I'll baptize my days with His love
I'll then know and feel of His comfort
Soft as the song of a dove

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice
Sing praises to Him who dwells on high
Lift up your heart, be glad and rejoice
Honor to Him who for us did die
Lift up your heart; glorious psalm
His love is our calm at the eye
Lift up your heart, He steadies the storm
He is love, He is peace, He is life
