I hope that all is going well. Things are doing well here. I have learned a great deal this week from one of our Zone Conferences.
Our mission president shared with us a story from the Book of Mormon, when Nephi was commanded to build a ship. Nephi asked where he should go to find ore to construct the ship, and afterward contructed the ship according to the model that the Lord showed him, using his own ingenuity to be able to contruct the ship.
Our mission president spoke of the importance of following the Lord`s model and using our own abilites and talents. It was a very inspiring message.
I hope all is well and that you have a wonderful week. Let me know what fun things happened this summer.
I love you all
P.S. Spiritual Thought: Courage is a manifestation of our faith. It is a powerful attribute that God has given to each and every one of His sons and daughters. It is something that lifts us to become stronger. Courage is the firm understanding that God will be on our right hand and on our left, with His angels round about us to bear us up.
