“I love Christmas and I love the gospel. I’m a ward missionary right now, and there is nothing more important to me in my life than living the gospel and sharing it.”
When Cache Valley resident Reid Smith noticed a streetlight that cast a glow across the street and into the corner of a field, he felt like it was a sign.
At that moment, he knew he needed to build a Nativity in that spot for the residents of Newton, Utah, which has fewer than 800 people.
