Savior of the World-His Birth and Resurrection
On Saturday Cory and I went to the Savior of the World Production. The youth here in our Stake have been practicing all summer for this beautiful musical called, "Savior of the World." It was so amazing! I was so impressed by the talent in this production. I really appreciate the dedication it must have taken to put it all together. The acting and the music for the play was unbelievable. I love that the church has such great opportunities for our youth to come closer to their Heavenly Father and also help others to feel of His love and strengthen their testimonies. It's definitely a comfort to me knowing that I'm going to be a mommy soon and our kiddos are going to be able to be apart of such great programs that the church provides. Especially since the world is in such ciaos and views on what is right and wrong is so skewed. The play was encompassing the Savior's birth and His resurrection. It was especially touching for me to see the actress portray Mary; she is just so sweet and humble knowing she is going to be the mother to the Savior of the world. She and Joseph never doubted in the Lord's plan. Before the second act started about Christ's resurrection they played a video. It was beautiful! The video is called, "Reflections of Christ." I have never seen this particular video before, it uses actual photos of people to help depict the story of Christ. The photographer was so talented in capturing all the images. I loved the emotion that was captured in the actors faces. I don't know what I was thinking not bringing any Kleenex's to this play, I'm a baby anyway but being pregnant also was like a double whammy. The spirit was so strong in that little theater. It was a great play and I thought I would share the video, "Reflections of Christ," and a few pictures of the play with everyone. It was so neat!
