We wish you all a very Merry 2019 Christmas

News of 2019 from the Ballard family:

 #3 Grandson - Sheridan Ballard (Kevin's eldest), serving in the San Jose, California, mission.
#4 Grandson - Teagan Petterson (Ryan's 2nd son), serving in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, Spanish speaking mission.

We are so grateful for their loving service to the Savior!
Ethan and Teagan also both graduated from High School this year, and Ryan's family moved to Wisconsin!

All our 18 grandchildren, our children, & their spouses bring us much JOY and LOVE and SERVICE! We appreciate and love them very much!

This year has been Russ' difficult year with 2 major surgeries and many serious complications.  We are still hoping that we can go North to Ocean Shores for the winter, but it will depend upon his complete recovery. Thank you to those of you who have prayed for us and served us during this time.

We are hoping that 2020 will be a wonderful year for all of you and for us!  We will be celebrating this coming October our 50th wedding anniversary!!  We are grateful for the sustaining love of our Heavenly Father and the comfort we daily receive from the Holy Ghost.  We are also extremely thankful for the Savior of the World and His Atoning sacrifice as we celebrate His birth and life at this blessed time of year.  We testify that He is the Messiah and Savior of the world.  May God bless you all in 2020!!
