Mary held seminary on Friday this week but unfortunately few came as most of the students decided they would rather enjoy another day of their vacation from school. Sister Neo – the new YW president came to learn about what we did for seminary and YM/YW activities. We are hoping that in the future the YW presidency – and eventually a YM presidency will conduct the activity time. This year’s lesson is on the D&C with todays lesson being on the healing power of the Priesthood. I got to share a number of stories about health blessings I have been able to give.
With Easter coming we had thought of decorating eggs and then having an Easter egg hunt. However they do not decorate eggs here – probably because almost all their eggs are a nice deep brown and would not show much in the way of dye. So I hid about 40 orange Swizzler – a kind of chewy candy – and they had a great time looking for them. The nice thing about Swizzlers is that they are small enough that they can be hidden much easier than eggs. The four seekers foundÂ about the same pieces of candy and had a lot of fun doing it.
Before and after the hunt they students had a spiritual activity so it was not all fun and games. The final part of the afternoon was digging into donuts sticky but oh so good chocolate and cinnamon sugar ones.
