Week 25

September 19, 2016

This week was adventurous as always. We were getting ready for district meeting on Wednesday (normally, we skype here in Port Antonio because the other half of our district is like 2-3 hours away) and found out that President Pearson was bringing Sister Pearson and the other half of the district here, and I was in charge of it. Anyways, I enjoyed it and I hope that my district was able to learn from it as well. Right after that we prepared bags for the kids that can't afford school supplies.  Many hands make light work.  We were able to prepare 100 bags in less than 2 hours. We were than able to talk to a lot of youth and a lot of adults as they came for the bags on Saturday. I love kids (even though they can be a bit hyper at times) because they know things so simply. That brings me to my spiritual thought. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is incredibly simple, it's us that make it complicated. If we focus on becoming Christlike and helping others we will be blessed and everything will either fall into place or fall out of our lives. That's not to say that life is easy, i am nowhere near perfect but I have a long while to work on that. I hope that you are all able to have a wonderful week, and I can't wait to see next week's emails.
