Stop! Red light red light

Wow! There's actually snow in Alaska, yay.

This week happened! There's not many moose sightings in Fairbanks,  unfortunately. But 
we do have snow, as evidenced in the district picture below!

We started teaching a Korean guy, which is super neat. He is learning English, and there's a recent return missionary from Korea who knows him and is helping us teach, since he 
doesn't understand half of what we say. It's been really neat to introduce him to the concept of God and help him understand that there's Someone out there looking out for him.

We had a regional broadcast from Salt Lake on Sunday for church! That was quite 
enjoyable. My favorite speaker was James J Hamula, who I recognized from a really great 
talk he gave a few conferences ago - "The Sacrament and the Atonement." Well, he gave 
another really great talk, and my favorite part was when he started talking about broken
things - every broken relationship, every broken heart, every broken anything, every broken dream - is susceptible to the Atonement. We are broken so that we can offer that on our 
altar of sacrifice and He can then cleanse us as we partake of the sacrament each week in 
the holy ordinance.
So remember, things are broken so that you can let God fix them. Ether 12:27 The church is true, the book is blue! Give something to God this week. Sister Rollins
