AJ sent this picture that he colored with the Finnish primary children and sent it with special notes that are so good for all of us so we wanted to share it.
AJ says this is the most rewarding thing you can do at age 19. It is hard work but it is where you develop the skills and attributes that will bless you for the rest of your life and into the eternities. Being in Finland, sharing the message about our brother Jesus Christ to the Finnish people is so fun. I know that Jesus Christ is our Master. He loves us so much that we cannot understand it completely.
He says "Karlie I am happy that you love school. I love school too. Right now I'm going to school too from 8am - 11am. First it's personal study, then companionship study, and finally language study. My teacher is the Holy Ghost. I do my best to listen for he knows everything. I want to learn everything I can."
We love you AJ!
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
