Can you believe it's already been more than 5 months? July is slowly creeping up and it scares me. Time goes sooo fast.
On Monday we went to the Alnwick castle and it was BEAUTIFUL. I am still amazed everyday by how beautiful this place is. We have a car every other week and just driving from village to village I feel like I'm in a movie.
We had zone conference and got to hear from President Pilkington (future Jeffrey R. Holland) and he talked about service and giving and compared it to the Dead Sea and the Galilean Sea. They both get water from the same river. The Galilean Sea is gorgeous. If you look up pictures, you'll see. And the reason is because when water comes into it, there is an outlet for the water to go out so things are constantly getting cleansed and getting more life. However, the Dead sea is lifeless and full of salt because there is no outlet for the water to go so it just sits there and collects salt and looks terrible. It is just like in service, if we don't give, we don't live. So give and live! That something I definitely need to work on.
If you get the chance, please read Finding Joy in the Journey from general conference October 2008. SO GOOD. you wont regret it.
Well, i was sick this week so not much else happened but it was a great week anyways. i got to go on exchange with my beff Sister Koephf which was a blast. Newcastle is also very pretty, but not as pretty as Alnwick. :)
Anyways, have a great week! Love, Sister Peterson
Alnwick Castle. they had 'flying lessons' that you could do. the Chinese elders really enjoyed it haha.
Downton abbey was filmed here so they had a bunch of cool stuff on display. I wasn't too interested but my mom would've been
The harry potter gift shop was insane. i spent way too much money and I'm not even a huge fan haha.
