Edrick’s Helping Hands

Edrick and his family love to help! His mom works in a shop teaching people how to sew. At the shop, they also have a vegetable garden. People who come to the shop can take vegetables home if they don’t have food. Edrick helps by watering the plants. “Eating vegetables is important to grow strong,” Edrick says. He is glad he can help grow healthy food for others to eat.

Edrick also likes ministering with his dad. They spend time with the children and youth in their ward. “I like to help the older kids,” says Edrick. He is happy when he serves others.
