Elkins, West Virginia: Week of Tuesdays and Fridays, Teach Me To Sing, and Hope as an Anchor

Hello family and friends!

This week has been a rather long week, but it was a good week as always. Every day either felt like a Tuesday or Friday because those always seem to be the longest days of the week. People either canceled lessons last minute or just weren't home, but we were still able to see quite a few inidividuals to serve and teach.

Last week our Relief Society president asked the elders if we all could sing on Sunday. The elders didn't end up telling us until halfway through the week. We struggled for a little while to figure out what song would help all of our voices not sound too horrendous together. We ended up choosing "Teach Me to Walk in the Light". It ended up going a lot better than I thought it would be, though I'm pretty sure that my face was beet red the entire time.

Last week I chose to "ponderize" Ether 12:4. The end result of my "ponderizing" is: "...whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope...maketh an anchor to the souls of men..." I never really thought of hope being something other than a wish for something, but hope involves more than wishing. Hope involves action (just like faith does). When we hope for something we choose to do what we can to make it a better world and live on the right hand of God.

This week's "ponderizing" scripture is 2 Nephi 25:26. "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."

I hope that you all have a wonderful week! You are absolutely wonderful, and I am so grateful for the influence you have played in my life. Keep it classy.
