If There is One Thing I know, That is That the Gospel is True
President Boyd K.Packer
Ukraine Kyiv Mission
13 July 2015
Elders and Sisters,
Hello to our amazing Elder's and Sister's! We love you! We miss you! 🎶 We are coming home to
you...🎶 This Wednesday we will leave to return back home to Ukraine. It has been a wild 3 weeks but
we have had some really neat experiences at the same time. It ended up being a tender mercy to be here
that our family will always remember and be grateful that we were here. When Grandpa Packer passed
they had 10 children, 60 grandchildren, 111 great grandchildren and with spouses 236 total. What a
legacy to leave behind. Grandpa spent his years serving the Lord. He loved to teach and through his talks
he has taught his posterity. I hope and pray that while we are here on earth we can live up to the
standards that grandpa has set. Being with him two days before he passed the spirit was so strong as we
talked about our mission. As we talked about our purpose. Many times grandpa teared up as he
continually shared how grateful he was that the future generations are moving the work forward. The
one thing that stuck out to me is when he got very emotional and said “if there is one thing I know, that
is that the gospel is true." Oh how we love grandpa and Grandma Packer. I know that on the other side
grandpa got right to work. I also know that he will continue to teach those of us as we serve our Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ. I am grateful to be a Packer. We will attach some of the pictures from the
funeral. We love you we can't wait to see you. When we get back in town we will work our way around
the mission and hope to see many of you!
with the passing of Grandpa Packer. We were able to go to his funeral and it was such a neat experience

Quote: If someone is looking for a church that requires very little, this is not the one. It is not easy to be a Latter-day Saint, but in the long run it is the only true course.
“Peace can be settled in the heart of each who turns to the scriptures and unlocks the promises of protection and redemption taught therein.” President Boyd K. Packer
