the one about hope

So, I got a new companion! His name is Elder Kay, from Calgary, Alberta. He's only got three months under his belt but already speaks like he's been here for nine months. We're having a great time here in the branch.

Last Monday, seminary started. It looked kind of sad having just us, the teacher, and two students. But slowly, more and more people came during the week and on Thursday we had nine kids there! It's great to see them learning from the scriptures, and especially learning that the scriptures have a lot of real-life application if you just pay attention.

And finally, yesterday we walked Rajmond (rye-moaned) all the way to his house after church. I have an even greater respect for this faithful man. The walk from the church to his house takes two hours. He does this twice every Sunday. We met him at his small plot of land with his cows and had a little lesson on hope. He says the only thing that keeps him going is a firm hope for a better future, which he gets from reading the scriptures at night by the light of his cell phone. This man is an inspiration to me, and if he doesn't get into the celestial kingdom, I sure as heck won't.

I sincerely hope the best for all of you!
