Week 88 Daily Bread
We were able to get our shopping and other tasks finished in the morning. The Orange zone did a outdoor
volleyball game so we stopped by and played a few rounds. We finished up dinner then went out to do a
little finding before the end of the night.
Tuesday The 4th of July US
Our day started out with a parade, about 100 missionaries carried flags. That was a few hours, it had to
be especially hot. When we got back and there was a BBQ we went to before we had to be in for the night.
Elder Sparto is still fighting off the virus he has, which is being passed around now. I have been fighting
it off now. So we got some rest to help fight it off. We had dinner with the Thatchers at Baja Tacos. The

family, they are fun. We tried to see a few people before our night ended.
The morning started with ward council, which was good. Sacrament meeting was cool a couple came back
from their senior mission and they shared some of their great experiences from serving. After church we
tried to stop by a few people. The Hathaway family had us over for dinner. The night ended with a little
We often don't recognize the effect of daily scripture study. In my observance of those that apply this
principle and don't, I have seen the great effects. The people that keep the routine of constant daily
scripture study and prayer have a better life. I'm not saying that it is necessarily easier, but they have the
strength to bear the things that they go through. It is able to bring a great peace to their lives and many
