Ponderizing in Peru

"This week I am going to be ponderizing Matthew 28:18-20.
I usually like studying the scriptures more in English  but I
actually like this scripture better in Spanish for two reasons.
First, in Spanish, it doesn't just say "teach all nations, it says,
"make all nations disciples. Second, at the end it says, " He will
be with us every day until the end of the world." Elder Johnson

Triple Good News

Instead of training dolls, we have a photo of real newborns that
have been resuscitated. It has only been 2 months since we visited
a Neonatal Resuscitation and Newborn Care Training in Nazaret
sponsored by LDS Charities and Ethiopian Pediatric Societies.
We learned today that 84 newborn babies have been resuscitated
since the workshops, including these triplets. We were so thrilled
with the results that we asked for this photo. The people who
attended just 2 months ago have taught university classes and held
more trainings and as a result, over 500 people have been trained
to save newborn lives and they will serve many areas of Ethiopia.

New Year's was September 12th and here we
are celebrating with our neighbors. It is now
2008 in Ethiopia and 7:00 am is 1:00 here,
 but we just go by our calendar and time.

General Conference in Peru

"The highlight of the week without a doubt was conference.
The talks were great, full of the spirit and powerful. I am
definitely going to be thinking of and setting lifelong goals
about sabbath day observance, scripture study, and personal
revelation. Also, I was super excited about the 3 new apostles.
I am glad to sustain them and I really know that they were
called by revelation." "I Love you guys!!!" Elder Johnson

Super Awesome Families in Peru

"This is a super awesome family that has been
going to church for about 2 months now. The 9
year old memorized the sacrament prayers.
"This family was referred by their neighbor but when we knocked on
their door, they told us that they had been praying to find a church that
could unite their family. Well, I guess they found it. They are all super
awesome and they have a goal to go to the temple and be sealed."
