Teaching Children

From Kim:
Our new apartment is way too nice! It was meant for a new office couple, but the wife didn't like the carpet and the fact that you need to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. So the mission gave it to us! I even have a queen- size bed! the office told me to go buy bedding for it so I got a cute quilt for it.

Sister Hansen and I are getting along great.
This week, we got to teach KIDS!
On the 4th of July we went into the courtyard of a complex where all these kids were playing and we sung a patriotic song to this man and one of the little girls heard us and asked if we would sing her a song, so we sang her a patriotic song, then sister Hansen got out her Hymnbook and we taught them primary songs. Soon we had quite the group of kids gathered around us- When it came time for us to go, the kids begged us to stay and when we told them "we can't, we have to go teach people," they all said: "teach my mom! Teach MY mom!" So they ran in to get their moms. We have 3 of their moms who agreed to a return visit! one of them is Erica's Mom, Theresa. We have returned a couple times since and the kids continue to swarm us.
