This transfer is going by really fast. South Africa is getting into its summer, and its getting super hot! Its funny though cause even here there will be a couple of days that are crazy hot then it will go straight to raining and be cold for a couple of days! Teaching in the heat kinda sucks.. we will go into a house and think it will be cooler in the house but the houses here just become a hot box.. and its 10 times hotter in there then outside.. haha we walk out drenched! but other than the weather its been going good and we've had some great teaching opportunities and lessons this week!
Queens Town is great but... there is just nothing to do out here! We've kind of already done everything that we could do.. we just clean and chill in the boarding, or go play sports which is always fun! :) and there is going to be a McDonalds here very soon. They started it a couple months ago and they are almost finished! I cant wait!!
I am very excited about General Conference! I love hearing from the Prophet and Apostles! The only thing is that we don't have satellite and we will have to watch it a couple of weeks after it actually airs...
Something cool that I've learned this week is the importance of studying the scriptures! Man, I love the scriptures and I'm so excited every time I read them! I feel the spirit helping me learn as I'm studying. I am in the new testament right now, and its amazing to read about Christ's ministry and his life. I grow a more deeper love every time I read about His sacrifice for us!
The atonement is amazing and his grace is sufficient for all of us! Studying has helped me realize and learn about Him! There is a question in PMG ( preach my gospel ) that says " if Joseph Smith hadn't been studying and read the James chapter 1:5, how would the world be?" This question hit me hard and I know that it is through learning about His word that we gain a testimony about the church!
What can we hold in our hands that even by touching it we can feel the power of the spirit? The Book Of Mormon!!
The Book of Mormon is amazing and I know that it is the word of God! I know that it contains the fullness of the gospel and that through it we may gain a witness and a testimony of the restored gospel!! I LOVE this church and its teachings!
Please, everyone, start scripture study as a family! Put on the Armour of God on our family before they go out into the world! I've seen what it can do for families as they read a couple of scriptures every morning! I also know that it can bring families together even more!
I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
