Letters for Uncle Eddie

Letters for Uncle Eddie

Based on a true story)

When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God (Mosiah 2:17).

Vicki H. Budge, “Letters for Uncle Eddie,” Friend, July 2008, 18–19

1. Jonathan looked at the clock for the eighth time. “Is it time for family home evening?” he asked again.

2. “Yes, we can start now,” Dad said with a smile.

3. Jonathan and his sister, Michelle, were excited. They put paper, pencils, watercolors, and crayons on the table. Everyone sat down on their chairs and folded their arms.

4. After the prayer Dad picked up a letter and read it to them. It was from Uncle Eddie.

5. Uncle Eddie was a missionary in Central America. Jonathan liked to hear about the boys and girls there.

6. When Dad finished reading the letter, everyone began to draw a picture or write a letter to Uncle Eddie. Jonathan drew a picture of Uncle Eddie riding his bike. He drew a picture of him flying away in an airplane to Central America. Then he drew a picture of him teaching a family.

7. “When you are finished, fold your letters and drawings, and we’ll put them in this envelope,” Dad said.

8. Jonathan wrote an extra note before he folded his letter: “Please send more pictures!” Then he signed it, I love you, Jonathan
