“A Dream for Dieter,” Friend, July 2021
When he was a boy, Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf loved watching airplanes. He imagined flying one of those big airplanes.
Someday, I want to be a pilot.
But Dieter’s family didn’t have much money. They had been refugees and had to leave their home twice to go to a new country.
While other children played, Dieter worked as a delivery boy to help his family.
Sometimes he felt like his dream was impossible!
But as he grew up, Dieter worked very hard to reach his dreams. He had faith that Heavenly Father would help him.
He joined the air force and trained to be the best pilot he could be.
Finally he reached his dream. He flew big airplanes for many years!
Maybe you wonder if your dreams are possible too.
It may not be easy, but you can do it.
You might face challenges, but they can make you stronger. God is with you every step of the way!
“Work hard. Have faith. Have hope. Trust in God. If you do your part, things will work out.”
