This week's been a pretty good one. The stake President's son got home from his mission and gave his homecoming talk at church on Sunday and it was really good. He served in Rio de Janeiro. Hopefully we'll be able to get him to come out teaching with us before he goes back to school.
Oxford is definitely a slower paced life than what I've been used to. We are working hard at finding some local community service we can get involved in.
Steve is still our main man! Last week we went over to his house to teach him about the Law of Chastity, the Word of Wisdom and the Law of Tithing. He already knew Everything! When we asked him how he told us that he spends a lot of time driving so he listens to anything he can find on the Gospel Library app and apparently he listened to the audio recording of the pamphlets for all of those lessons. It messed up our commitment because we were going to ask him to read them. So we committed him instead to read about Temples because that's what we're going to teach him next time. Besides teaching the Restoration I think teaching people about Temples is my favorite lesson. It really links every other lesson together and gives people direction in understanding their responsibilities as a member. Of course that applies to every single member not just those recently baptized.
Q & A with mom
2. Having four distinct seasons
3. It's just the two of us and we cover 12 neighboring towns
4. When presented with some trial people feel more comfortable asking a friend for help. Why? Because they have developed a relationship with them. So it is with God, we must develop a relationship with him and increase our understanding of him. As we do this we feel more comfortable asking for his help and we are more apt to recognize his help when it does come.
