I'M HAPPYFirst of all, fun fact I was in quarantine and the government here actually did come and check on me! Anyways, fresh air had never felt so good as it did on that day we got out of quarantine. 

HIGHLIGHTSSister Perry and I started running along the reka(river) every morning! We had some really yummy food and ice cream. I had the opportunity to go to church on Sunday and meet the few members in the branch here!! I got called to play the piano for the branch! I spoke in slovene and actually understood some of the things people were saying to me! I got to meet all of the missionaries here in Slovenia (there are only 9 of us). We spent our Pday together exploring a castle, eating some great pizza, and playing four square at a park!!
SPIRITUALI read an amazing talk this week by Elder Ballard. It is from October 2019 called Giving Our Spirits Control Over Our Bodies."Think about that for a moment. This is who you and I really are and who you have always been: a son or daughter of God, with spiritual roots in eternity and a future overflowing with infinite possibilities. You are—first, foremost, and always—a spiritual being. And so when we choose to put our carnal nature ahead of our spiritual nature, we are choosing something that is contrary to our real, true, authentic spiritual selves."This quote really hit me. We all have spiritual roots. Deep inside us we just want to be good and live with our Father in Heaven again someday. It makes so much sense why when we make good choices, we feel good inside; it's because our choices our aligning with our spiritual nature. After reading this talk it reminded me of a this video.Migration: A Yearning for Homehttps://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/video/inspirational-messages/2019-01-0010-migration-a-yearning-for-home-1080p-eng?lang=eng">https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/video/inspirational-messages/2019-01-0010-migration-a-yearning-for-home-1080p-eng?lang=eng
Animals migrate hundreds and thousands of miles across the world to get back to the place that would suit them. We don't understand though how they manage to know the way back home but it must be something inside them leading them back. I totally believe the same thing is inside us just like this talk was saying. We all have spiritual roots! We will be happiest if we follow God's commandments and live like Jesus lived so that we can find our way home to live with God again. Remember who you are and who you can become:))
I feel so blessed and life is good.Much love,Sestra King
