“More Than 2,000 Ties,” New Era, Jan. 2011, 38
The young women from the Las Vegas Nevada Highland Hills Stake collected more than 2,000 ties as part of a service project. They gathered ties for about five months, then boxed them up to send to the 34 missionaries serving from their stake.
“This project made me realize just how amazing our missionaries are,” said Mary Moody, 16. “Sending ties was the least we could do. Serving our missionaries gave me a tiny glimpse of the joy they must feel as they bring others to Christ.”
The ties are being used for the missionaries, members, converts, and investigators from the more than 20 countries where the missionaries are serving.
