It's that time of life when I go back in time and remember the "birth" days of Rakai and Asa. Rakai, my firstborn child and the many hours of labor. Asa, my 5th child and the fright of premature delivery. We are all still here.
Rakai was ordained a Deacon the Sunday after Asa was born. Asa and I couldn't go to church so the Bishop and Grandparents came to the house. It was a wonderful opportunity for Rakai.
So we celebrate Asa and Rakai during March. This year we had to take pictures in separate locations. Asa was wishing Rakai was home for a photo together but we had to do a collage instead. Hamilton tried to feed Rakai his cupcake through the computer. Silly boys!
Asa was ordained a Teacher today. He bore a wonderful testimony and talked about a scripture Isaac sent to him. D&C 103: 36 - "All victory and glory is brought to pass unto you through your diligence, faithfulness, and prayers of faith."
This is good advice from our missionary.
