I've had a cold the past few days also, so we've stayed indoors and rested a lot. It's been good because I feel like it's easing up pretty quick. It's given us a good chance to listen to talks and scripture and practice hymns and feel the spirit, also rest has been good.
Church was great yesterday. We learned a lot about being an example to others, especially to our kids. It reminds me of a quote that Tony V. gave time ago that 'Teaching by example isn't just a good way to teach, it's the only way.' I believe Einstein made mention of that.
We have Zone Conference this week, Friday, so we've memorized some scriptures and been preparing things for it. One of the scriptures is Alma 37:16-17, "But if ye keep the commandments and do with these things which are sacred according to that which the Lord doth command you,( for you must appeal unto the Lord for all things whatsoever ye must do with them) Behold no power of earth or hell can take them from you for God is powerful to the fulfilling of all his words. For He will fulfill all His promises which he shall make unto you for He has fulfilled his promises which he has made unto our Fathers."
I like that scripture. It's true.
So I got Sarah's and Dad's letter the other day and that was fun. Sarah wrote her's on her Bday! That was nice. We did have some good lessons last week but it seems like it's been forever. We went to WalMart on Sat. and we saw a bunch of people there that we know and have been working with and seeing. It was awesome. It's so great and important to be friends with people and really care about them, that's the great part.
Many apostles have emphasized being an ensign to people around us, showing our love and our message. I know that is what the world needs and the people all around us. People are always learning from us and watching.
I love you guys. We stand on the firmest foundation there is: the rock of Christ.
