What a wonderful day at church today! Our Bishop started our fast and testimony meeting by bearing powerful witness of the Holy Ghost. He stood and reminded the members of the congregation to follow promptings and speak by the spirit when sharing testimonies today. What followed was a very sacred and special testimony meeting that ended in an amazing story the Bishop shared regarding following promptings.
Then, today was the first Sunday I taught my new primary class. The kids were more rambunctious than my last class because of the age difference- but I loved it! I am really looking forward to teaching the D&C and church history this year. I have some fantastic resources left over from seminary that I can use this year.
To cap off a wonderful day, primary sharing time was so well prepared and just excellent. The music leader worked really hard to make a "Primary Premiere"! It was so fun! The kids were escorted down a red carpet and brought through the paparazzi to their seats. Then, she had different people in the ward sing or play the new songs the kids would be learning for the year. I really enjoyed it and had a great time. The kids were so quiet, you could hear a pin drop.
Above is one of my favorite pictures of the Savior. The story of the woman touching Christ's hem is so poignant to me. I cannot, however, find a way to get the print without the words- anyone who knows how to do so and lets me know- would be greatly appreciated!
