GOLDEN WEDDING GIFT: UTAH CENTRAL AREA

SHARE GOLDEN WEDDING GIFT: UTAH CENTRAL AREA

For their golden wedding anniversary in June, Edwin and Leila Shipp did not want a reception. Instead, they requested that their children do something to further the missionary effort.

They were surprised when they were presented with three boxes filled with copies of the Book of Mormon. The books, in three languages, were sent to missions where their grandchildren are serving: Argentina, Switzerland and Finland. Each book carries a picture of the Shipps with this message: "This book is presented to you as a gift in honor of our parents, Edwin Karl and Leila Petty Shipp on their Golden Wedding."The Shipps are members of the Monument Park 13th Ward, Salt Lake Monument Park Stake.
