We are in contact with a couple in DC, and they are giving us tips on preparing and answers to questions. They are great. She said I could wear the aprons. So I will make up 3 of them.
I have a thought I must put down. I have been involved here in Idaho Falls with the Republican Party. i am a Precinct Committeeman. I have found someone to take my place when I leave. However, because of some the major conflicts in the Republican Party leadership, the most conservative of us lost ground in the election in May. So we are starting a group to be an active voice in the community in educating people and trying to slow progress of the UN Agenda 21, particularly the smart meters. I went to a meeting last night and I became overwhelmed with all the stuff that needs to be done here in the community. I came home conflicted. Well, this morning as Creig and I were reading and studying, a scripture from the D&C leaped out of the page at me. It is D&C 16:6 -
"And now, behold, I say unto you, that the thing which will be of most worth uto you will be to declare repentance unto this people, that you may bring souls unto me, that you may rest with them in the kingdom of my Father. Amen."
Wow! That is what I need to be doing! That is where my mind and heart need to be totally. And I am willing to do that. That is what I desire most.
And along that line, Creig and I just finished 1 Nephi chapter 1 in Spanish. Creig reads in Spanish and I follow in English and we compare. I am beginning to recognize some of the phrases. I can bear a simple testimony in Spanish of "I know that God is my Heavenly Father."
So we just keep plugging along trying to do things each day to prepare. We got a phone that will let us hook up our laptop and desktop to its wireless. So, hopefully, that will give us Internet service in our apartment. One thing, on day at a time, and we will be ready to leave to serve our Lord and our God full time.
