Hey y'all. Can you believe it, it's finally starting to cool down a little around here. The weather is absolutely beautiful. Sunny, windy, and about 27C (80F). It's fantastic. We don't even have to have our fans on and I've worn a sweater every day this week. I've truly become a Filipina.
This week Sister McCarthy has been pretty sick, so we didn't get a lot of work done proselyting-wise. But, we each started reading the Old Testament together and because of all the time we've had at home and about six hours of reading a day, we're more than halfway through. And yes, that's a lot of reading. 650 pages in three days. It's been such a neat,unifying experience to study and understand the words of the ancient prophets. It's the first time I've read the Old Testament front to back and I can hardly put it down. Our house has been so quiet besides for the occasional question and discussion. I am so thankful for Sister McCarthy and the deep, interesting conversations that have come from our studies together. It's been really incredible to learn and see things like temple worship, priesthood, and other foundational doctrines outlined and instituted in the Bible. The Book of Mormon and the Bible truly support each other in every way. What can I say? The Church is true. I am so thankful for the faithful servants of God who preserved scriptures that we may have the fullness of the truth here on the earth today.
Have a great week!
