Hi :)This week was a crazy one...but we made it! We had a total of 30 lessons that we taught. (They want us to teach 20 lessons a week. So we exceeded it!) It was a lot of work though. We also got our transfer calls this week. I will be staying here in New Haven with Sister Parker :) So no address change or anything. Keep sending things to:

We went into the combined YM/YW Sunday school class yesterday and bore our testimonies to them. We want to work closely with some of the youth in our ward. They need extra support! But the Bishop came in and talked about the Atonement. He brought up a point about light and it's properties. He said that light moves at about 186,282 miles/second. suuuuper fast. He asked, "if you were going 186,281 miles/second, would light only be passing you at 1 mile/second?" All of us figured yes because that is normally how it would work. But the answer is no. One of the special properties of light is that no matter how fast you are going, light will always pass you at 186,282 miles/second. So you can never catch up to it. Then he related that to the gospel and how Jesus Christ is compared to being the 'Light of the World'. We will never be able to catch up to Him. No matter how fast or how hard we try. That is why Jesus had to come and die for us. That is the only way that we can catch up. I just thought it was so interesting that before we even knew all of these laws of physics about light, Jesus Christ compared himself to being the light of the world. Obviously He knew the properties of light. The more I learn about science and logic, the more I believe in God. I know that He is there. I know that He loves us and He created us. It is just amazing to think. I hope you could follow my thoughts...I just was having them as he continued to talk.
