An inspiring story

I've been following Oscar Pistorius for a while, and when I heard about the latest ruling allowing him to compete for a spot on the Olympic team, I got excited. You can read and watch his story here.

Sam's First Primary Talk

Sam "gave" his first primary talk last week. We practiced for days before, and recorded a few of his practice sessions which went awesome! He really did well at home, when he was just in front of Marcia, Lucas and I.
But then came the day to actually give the talk, and things didn't go very well. Sam froze, and Marcia had to give the whole thing. We were pretty sad, because as you can see from the video, he really had it down.

For those of you who don't understand Portuguese, here is what Sam said:
Hi kids. The families from the scripture, my family helps me be strong. Nephi, had a bow and arrow, which broke. Everyone got hungry. Nephi prayed. Nephi made another new bow and arrow. Then he gave a lot of food to everyone. Everyone was happy. I Sammy will be good. I will pray to heavenly Father just like Nephi. I'm also going to listen to my Mom and Dad speak, and I will be obedient. I will listen to Jesus also. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
