HOLY SHAMOLY!this week was super freaking AWESOME!
we were super busy just running around seeing everyone, we had appointments every night and we were just so busy! hot hot. its been good.
then we went to the Nicolas' place and they took us to their daughters new apartment so we could say a prayer there before they sleep in it, and we had a good afternoon with them! and that night we went over to Franqui and Pastoras house and we had a really good lesson with them, and then we went home!
andwas super sick. we had church, where i was able to confirm Valentin and give him the gift of the holy ghost, and the lesson in combined class was super sweet, all about home and visiting teaching and how we can do better in our callings! after church,we went to Valentins (yes i know, we've seen him alot this week, but im really going to miss him!) and we had pasta and played Clue while the food was cookin! i won both rounds somehow... im not sure how to really play that game. then we went back to our place, took of our suits cause its been DANG hot out, and then night we went to the Sekyere familys house. this is a family in Aulnay, and their son was baptized while i was there. it was a really good time to go to their place and see those guys again.
i really learned this week how prepared we are, and how lucky we are to have so much access to the scriptures. it wasnt too long ago that very few people had access to the bible, and now we have the bible, the book of mormon, the doctrine and covenants, the pearl of great price, and constant revelation given to the Prophet. there must really be a need for us to read the scriptures, to be nourishing ourselves with the word of God, because we have VERY easy access to it. i think that we will be held responsable if we dont really put this accessability to use in our lives! all those reformers would have killed, and literally were killed, to have the chance to have such an access as we do. The Book of Mormon has blessed my life so much, i cant even begin to describe how much i cherish those scriptures and flourish when i apply them. If any of you havent read the book of mormon, just do it! its such a small thing that will truly tip the scales in your favor.
