I was reading a talk this morning by Sheri L. Dew entitled "You Were Born to Lead - You Were Born for Glory", and it is a very good message. We are here on earth during the last days before the Second Coming of Christ. The end of our time of preparation is steadily drawing closer. I feel like things are picking up, and honestly it makes me feel more of a need to do the work I am here to do, because the deadline is soon and we simply can't afford to be caught off-guard, pursuing our own rewards right now, and then not be able to abide the day of His coming. Little bit straight-up, huh? But the cool thing that Sister Dew explained is that we have the opportunity and privilege to have the Lord's help and direction in these times. We can get on the right train and continue doing the right and have the strength and help we need. Very good talk.
Also today, we had clouds! Yay! It was super sunny in the early afternoon, and then about 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm-ish it got cloudy and a nice breeze ran through our area, so that was fantastic.
During District Meeting this morning, we bought these bags of orange juice from one of the investigators of the elders in La Ideal area (where the church we meet for District Meeting is) and they were soooooooo good! Everything's sold in bags, and these little guys (actually they're about a half liter of juice, kind big) even had ice cubes and a straw with them, fancy that! And cheap, only 10 lemps. So they made some good bank from all the missionaries buying 2 or 3 bags of juice, each, but it was totally worth it, as it was quite a long morning. And we were hungry. And I missed orange juice. And it was just really hot. So that was awesome.
|Our night without light!|
|Candles are pretty neat, I like to watch the flame and see them all glowy... makes me think of Christmas and I feel all snuggly and warm!|
But yeah, overall today was good. Mostly we are just thrilled to actually have some plans go through today, so we're just really happy campers! (We even got our little baby fire!)
