Follow the Prophet
I have spent some of the week preparing to teach the song Follow the Prophet to the children at church. With many nationalities worshiping each week with the Bangkok 1st Ward, having pictures helps remind the children of the song lyrics. Thanks to images from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pixabay and Susan Fitch, you can download the pictures here.
The visuals are for verses 1, 8 and 9 - Adam, Daniel and Modern Day. I haven't included any visuals for the chorus as that's the one part they already know! They were very helpful for me and the children today as we sang, so hopefully they'll also be of help to someone else :)
The rest of the week I have been grumpy with 'dark clouds of trouble hanging o'er me'! That was until I decided to actually follow the prophet Russell M. Nelson:
After a heart felt prayer the clouds literally parted as I left my apartment. With slight anxiety, due to my lack of Thai language skills, I caught a taxi to church. To my delight the taxi driver and I laughed the entire 10 minute ride as we tried to communicate. As soon as I entered the chapel, chatted with friends and participated in the service my mood began to lighten. To top it all off there was a half empty songthaew waiting at Lumphini MRT station so I didn't have to walk the 15 minutes home in the hot sun. I really shouldn't be surprised...
