Dear Family & Friends,
This morning for P-day we washed our clothes, cleaned our apartment and went to a swampy forest area to catch crabs for this one member family. it was pretty fun, you find a hole and just shove your arm down there and feel around for the crab and then grab it and yank it and all the mud and dirt around it out, and pray it doesn't pinch you. I ripped my pants along the knee doing it and so I had to cut them off into shorts so I wouldn't be walking around with one pant leg torn wide open at the knee while the other one was fine. It reminded me of Grandma Satchwell and upon learning that I was going to Africa on a mission she asked me all sorts of funny questions like mentioned in the title.
Conference sure was awesome! We got to watch two sessions. The Asamankese Chapel broadcasted the Saturday Afternoon Session and the Priesthood Session on Sunday morning for the members in the District to see. I guess I will just have to wait to get the Liahona to read the rest of General Conference but I really loved David Bednar's talk in Priesthood Meeting about Preparing to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood and preparing to go to the temple and the difference between being assigned to and area and being called to serve. I also loved the story in Gary Sabin's talk about the Boy Scout who wouldn't unroll his sleeping bag to save 5 min of work, but caused him hours of suffering. I also loved when he mentioned "Star Wars" and a "disturbance in the force" and thought of James, I knew he was enjoying that talk.
