Things here are great! Ashby Shimai is awesome. Skyping was soo great and well needed.
Well I have been studying in the institute student manual for Old Testament and D&C. If you have the LDS Gospel app with the whole LDS Gospel library they have it on there, it is the coolest thing. I told my old companion about the book (Visions of Glory) and she was studying in the Old Testament manual when she was reading about Jonah. Then she came across the lost ten tribes as she is reading about Jonah and they tell you everything about these people. So they were from the Northern kingdom in the time of Jonah and the Assyrians. The Assyrians were really really bad people. The Assyrians conqured the Northern kingdom and other countries and they would take bunches of people to far off lands to control the population/ keep growing in power. Well the Northern Kingdom people eventually came to remember their God and they started praying to him to save them. They were released and they wanted to travel far away so they wouldn’t forget their God again. So they went to inhabit a land where NO inhabitants have lived and they took their journey to the North. (crazy right and that’s not even the best part) and in D&C it says……..: D&C 133:26
26 And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence.
WHAT?! They will smite the rocks and ice will flow, sounds a lot like the vision. It makes me want to read the book again. I’m going to send you the pages if you want to read more about it you can. It is so cool. I would really really encourage getting the whole gospel library and study from the institute manuals. It is amazing. D&C has been way fun to read.
