We have a new computer and in a tiny box on the side of the screen is a rotating slideshow of images in our My Pictures folder. When this one came up, I had to smile.
This is my primary class from the Mitcham Ward from my second study abroad in London. It's the entire senior primary. It was definitely a challenging calling. On my first day some of the older girls and boys were continuing an argument that had begun before church started and called each other names I had never even heard before. It was a rocky start, but after a few weeks of lessons involving as many kids as possible at all times and a few choice distributions of Jaffa Cakes and Oh! how I loved those children! Especially the two little girls to my right and the one in the pink sweater in front. They adored me and I couldn't help but adore them right back.
Maybe someday I'll get to go back and learn to love a new group of beautiful children.
