Have a good week! (Amik August 1)

On Monday night we got a lady on date for the 20th of August, the day after my year mark. Which is odd since it does not feel like it has been that long.  Also, we have another lesson tonight with a less active family and we are teaching the first vision. We also have home teaching.

I recently watched a video on the story of the widow of Zarephath. During a time of famine, the prophet Elijah called upon widow, who had no means to feed him, to provide him with water and bread. Her response was, “As the Lord thy God liveth, have not cake, but an handful of meal in barrel, and little oil in cruse: and, behold, am gathering two sticks,that may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die”
The prophet promised her that “the barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail. “And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days” Her barrel, which had had enough for one last meal for her family, was multiplied to allow her family and others to eat many days. The same type of miracle—based on our own offering—was occurring in our family.  
With my natural gift for humming I just think of the hymns nearly all the time.   Also, At times I do not even realize that I am humming till my companion looks at me and asks me why I am humming Christmas music.  Apparently I have really gotten into Christmas music.  
Out of nowhere... , transfers are coming up on August 10.    
Thanks for the pictures
Anyway have a great week
