Hello beautiful people,
I can’t believe it… I reached my 16th month mark yesterday. How the time is starting to speed up and I feel. I already know that I will miss the mission so much !
Anyway, as mentioned in the previous week, it was Elder Ogbeide’s 21st Birthday, and of course #2121212121, it meant we had to do something. Sister Wilkinson and I decided to buy a gift for each room, and decorate their flat.
The gift for each room is as follows:
Dressing Room – A Tommy Hilfiger tie that I approve of
Bathroom – Lynx Black body wash kit
Bedroom – A Welsh Birthday Card ‘Penblwyd Hapus’ signed by the entire district and the assistants to the president, *privileged*
Kitchen – Crunchy Nut Cereal and Milk, of course, whole milk as he likes the protein #gains
Study Room – Smart Water (I am hilarious), Lion Chocolate Bars (Proverbs 28:1), a Welsh Book of Mormon, and a family pack of four pens (He stole mine).
Millions of silver confetti
6 Hooray ! 21 Today Banners
2 Disco Lights
Let’s just say that the birthday coordinator has retired. Although our AP, Elder Ellis claims that I can’t bring back something that never was there, but I just think he is hurt that I didn’t celebrate his birthday.
For those of you who are not on facebook,
There are no coincidences, but divine design. As Elder Ronald A. Rasband expressed ‘What may appear to be a random chance is, in fact, overseen by a loving Father in Heaven.’
Sister Jones will have arrived at the Provo Missionary Training Centre before she embarks on her mission to Tokyo, Japan. こんにちは !
If you want to give a light to others, you have to glow yourself. – Thomas S. Monson
Doctrine and Covenants 84:45-46 For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
And the Spirit giveth light to every man that cometh into the world; and the Spirit enlighteneth every man through the world, that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit.
Doctrine and Covenants 50:24 That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
I know that embedded within us all is the Light of Christ, or the power and influence to do good.
