I think my brain will explode there's so much to say about this week.
We took a minute to prepare for class (my section was on Hosea and Joel, Sister Brown did Amos and Obadiah). HOLY COW THE OLD TESTAMENT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND SOMETIMES. But it's okay because we had all the institute manuals and seminary manuals and much praying on our side so it went okay. Scarlett was the only "student" we had there so we talked and talked and talked about all sorts of doctrine and the cool parables (about God and His relationship with the Israelites. It's cool. You should read it.) Then we went straight to dinner with Erika and went home and went to bed. (After planning of course.)

1. Faith - the faith of the sick person or person being asked to act.
2. Action - faith requires action. The ruler/father of the sick daughter had to act on his faith and humble himself to ask Christ to come heal his daughter.
3. Love/compassion - Christ had to have such a deep and abiding love to make it possible. The pure love of Christ (or charity) is powerful!
I love you all. Russellville is the best. But actually the Book of Mormon is the best because it testifies of Jesus Christ and through Jesus Christ is how we can be together forever with our families!
