Sister Warren, I just came in from a 36 hour trip from the States. My mind is gelatinous. I realized that It was Sunday. (we lose an entire day on this trip) What was I to do about my Gospel Doctrine Lesson. Thank heaven I found your link on LDS Web Assist. I know I am not as prepared as I like to be, but this blog will point me in the right direction. I will be a regular here. I live in Penang, Malaysia. I have taught Gospel Doctrine to the Saints here for 2 years.

I have a present for you. I just played around with PowerPoint a bit for this lesson (I don't usually do that, but I have a trip I have to take off for right after teaching my lesson until Monday night, so I wanted it to go smoothly (and somewhat mindlessly for me), so I created this: http://ideawarehouse.typepad/idea_warehouse/elisha.htm (online) or the PowerPoint version which is http://ideawarehouse.typepad/idea_warehouse/elisha.ppt. Have fun. I was laughing a lot when I did it, but it IS serious and thought-provoking. Please excuse the echos of Seinfeld and the Colbert Report.
