January 25, 2016

Week Recap: 
After we finished our P-day we went to the Taylor's house for dinner. When we were there, we picked up our laundry as well (they let us do our studies and laundry there in the morning). After dinner we went to FHE at the church where we read and discuss the Book of Mormon. The reason we have FHE at the church is to try and get empty nesters and single adults who are less active to come and socialize with members of the ward and to read the Book of Mormon.
On Wednesday, there was a world wide mission broadcast where we were instructed by the leaders of the church on how we can teach repentance and baptize converts. It was awesome hearing from Elder Anderson, Bednar and several other leaders of the church.
On Friday, I went on exchanges to Windsor which is just across a river from Detroit. I was surprised because Detroit wasn't as big as I had pictured it to be. 
And finally on Sunday, I had to give a talk on teaching little kids for 10 min. We also had 2 investigators show up which was sweet!

In Windsor, just across the river from Detroit.

Did you know that Jethro is like 1/38 Chippewa?  So you're among some of his relatives.  I was reading in 2 Nephi 30: 3-6 and thought of you:

3. "And now, I would prophesy somewhat more concerning the Jews and the Gentiles.  For after the book of which I have spoken shall come forth, and be written unto the Gentiles, and sealed up again unto the Lord, there shall be many which shall believe the words which are written; and they shall carry them forth unto the remnant of our seed.

4.  And then shall the remnant of our seed know concerning us, how that we came out from Jerusalem, and that they are descendants of the Jews.

5.  And the gospel of Jesus Christ shall be declared among them; wherefore, they shall be restored unto the knowledge of their fathers, and also to the knowledge of Jesus Christ, which was had among their fathers.

6. And then shall they rejoice; for they shall know that it is a blessing unto them from the hand of God.

You, my dear, are among the missionaries Nephi prophesied would carry the book to the remnant of his seed.  So incredibly cool!  Go get 'em tiger (or should I say snow leopard). Ha Ha.

That's pretty sweet. Going to try and convert those laminates. I'm actually going to the reserve today. A member from the tribe lives there and he is going to teach us how to carve salmon out of wood.
