soooooo, long flights and long layovers! whoop whoop. leave monday afternoon and arrive wednesday afternoon! anyone wanna keep my company?? haha sorry to tempt goal is to teach 5 people over the whole commute haha think it can be done? dang i'm PUMPED! t-minus 4 days. 
so nothing new this week! literally. we heard from the same guy at our sunday devotional that we have heard from previously BUT his message was beautiful. it was on repentance. especially as i finish alma and read the Book of Mormon and look at the things in my life, repentance hits ya hard. its real. its cleansing, its peaceful. if done right. we were at our usual temple walk on sunday and a lady randomly came up to our five (the Furious Five) and asked how do you know when you have fully been forgiven. it was weird cause our Sacrament theme was over repentance, but we had yet to go to the sunday night devotional to hear about it. We gave an alright answer, but i think it comes in two main parts. God has already forgiven you for his sins. We know that. you can read in Mosiah 3 and 4? yeah i think thats it. but the answer to that question, is also found in the BoM (mosiah or alma haha sorry i forgot the reference) but it is, when you feel the peace and joy the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ give to you. The second part, and probably the hardest some times, would be forgiving yourself. 

Fotseny amin'ny alalan'ny Sorompanavotany afaka azontsika ny famelana ny fahotana sy atsapa tsara kokoa.
"Only through His Atonement can we receive a remission of sins and feel better."
marina tantara. (true story)
That is pretty much it for this week! i feel like all the weeks blend together! Oh, but parents! i'll probably call before i leave SLC and before i leave Dallas. i got calling cards. we straight. All 13 of us are traveling together. should be a fun commute. We might try to go around London on our 8 hour layover...but Here are some pics from the last week! i love you all! thanks for your love and support! i miss you.
continue with the attribute challenge (maybe focus on another or try a new study tactic) and focus on prayer!
