A Black and Blues Week
It’s always a great day in January when you can wear short-sleeves in Canada.
Hello all! I hope your week has been marvelous! My week has been simply splendid. One must not become too focused on the material things of the world, but I am rather pleased with some shiny new things this week.
As some of you may know, the Church recently released DVD’s containing 50 clips from Biblevideos.org which contain highlights from the Savior’s life. Elder Winkler and I received a free copy from the Distribution Center because the complimentary booklet was missing from the DVD case. We’ve been using the videos in lessons, which has been really helpful.
Elder Winkler also received an extra set of black, pocket-sized scriptures, which he gave to me. I now carry them everywhere, and they are a great resource. I’ve been highlighting my favorite scriptures so I can show them to other people that we meet.
Ray has been feeling much better; he has a subscription to a Steve Nash gym, so he’s been much more active and energized. Because of this he’s recommitted to be baptized, and he bought Elder Winkler some sunglasses and he bought me a nice Blues harmonica, which I’ve been teaching myself to play. The zone leaders asked if I could play harmonica at district meeting on Wednesday, so I need to learn fast!
I would also like to give a special shout-out to the Rawe family- Subway has become the unofficial restaurant of the Langley zone, so the gift card did not last very long. Thank you so very much!
In other news, I finally received my official British Columbia driver’s license, so no longer must I deal with the temporary paper copies that I had to use.
I’m still working out a way to send pictures, but don’t expect any photos anytime soon… Sorry!
