Cool umbrella hat.
This week was super nice! So we got to teach over 30 new people!
We are very excited for the future of this area, even if we don't reap the seeds that we sow. We know the work we are doing will eventually help change the lives of many.
This week I studied in the Isaiah chapters in 2 Nephi but I love a scripture that is in the second chapter verse 11.
2 Nephi 2:11 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.
I know that God lets us have opposition because he loves us. God’s law is given unto all men by virtue of the fact that, life and death, as opposites, gives us order and direction in every possible way to live our lives. The prophet Lehi tells us that “men are instructed sufficiently that they know good from evil”, because the opposites of life and death are built into every way we can live our lives to some degree and directs His children to avoid the things of death (evil) and to promote the things of life (good).
I believe God's law of opposition in all things helps us to come to know His divine love for us personally. I loved learning this as I studied.

How about a tour of our new apartment?
By far the nicest place I have lived on my mission!
Our great kitchen! The advantages of living in/near the capitol city.
Washing machine and balcony.
